NASA to host teleconference on activity on Jupiter's moon Europa

NASA has reported it will host a teleconference on Monday, Sept. 26, to present new findings from images captured by the agency´s Hubble Space Telescope of Jupiter´s icy moon, Europa, the company said.

Astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean on Europa.

Participants in the teleconference will be Paul Hertz, director of the astrophysics division at NASA headquarters; William Sparks, astronomer with the Space Telescope Science Institute; Britney Schmidt, assistant professor at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology and Jennifer Wiseman, senior Hubble project scientist at NASA´s Goddard Space Flight Center.
