A new study has found that salt water in the ice shell of Jupiter moon Europa could potentially transport oxygen to the ice-covered liquid ocean.
Researchers believe that this may be due to the survival of life inside the moon’s unfavorable land.
They believe that the amount of oxygen in Europe’s oceans could probably be as much as it is in the Earth’s oceans today.
This theory has been proposed before, but experts at the University of Texas at Austin in the US state of Texas developed the world’s first computer simulation of this process based on physics.
Mark Hessie, a lead researcher in the Department of Geological Sciences at the UT Jackson School of Geo sciences, said his research has put the process into a world of possibilities.
He said.”It provides us with a solution to the problem of increasing life on the surface of an Europa’s ocean floor,”
