How much sun does Europa get?

How much sun does Europa get?

Europa’s surface is made of water ice and so it reflects 5.5 times the sunlight than our Moon does.

Can there be life on Europa?

Europa’s surface is blasted by radiation from Jupiter. That’s a bad thing for life on the surface – it couldn’t survive. But the radiation may create fuel for life in an ocean below the surface. The radiation splits apart water molecules (H2O, made of oxygen and hydrogen) in Europa’s extremely tenuous atmosphere.

Is Jupiter a Lightyear away?

How long until Voyager reaches the Oort Cloud?

about 300 years

Can we see the Oort Cloud?

Predicted Realm. The Oort Cloud is a predicted collection of icy objects farther away than everything else in the solar system. It fits with observations of comets in the planetary region of the solar system, but scientists have yet to observe any object in the Oort Cloud itself.
