Astrobiology course 4

So following on from previous post I have been watching the lecture on Where to look for life in the solar system presented by Dr Jennifer Blank.

Really interesting and in fact this builds on the course undertaken as part of my Certificate in Contemporary Science course. S186 : Planets and introduction.

So lots of moons around Jupiter that seem to have sub surface water, but importantly thank to Tidal Heating this could be liquid water under the surface.

So Io, Ganymede, Callisto, and Europa, are interesting but given between Jupiter and Saturn there are over 100 moons. There are lots of interesting moons out there, some with very interesting molecules that include organics.
