Research Bolsters Possibility of Plate Tectonics on Europa (page 2)

Providence RI (SPX) Dec 05, 2017 A Brown University study provides new evidence that the icy shell of Jupiter's moon Europa may have plate tectonics similar to those on Earth. The presence of plate tectonic activity could have important implications for the possibility of life in the ocean thought to exist beneath the moon's surface. The study, published in Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, uses computer modeling
