Cuba around the world: 60 years of weapons and white coats

Havana - As its revolution turns 60, Cuba is still reaching out all over the world to spread the socialist ideology that carried Fidel Castro to power in 1959.

Plumes of water may be erupting from Jupiter's moon Europa: NASA

NASA announced the Hubble Space Telescope has imaged what appears to be plumes of water coming from Jupiter's moon Europa. This could signal the possibility of life underneath the moon's frozen surface.

Scientists find evidence that a moon of Jupiter could hold life

A new study released by NASA on Tuesday shows that oceans on Europa, one of Jupiter’s 67 known moons, might have a lot in common with our own oceans, including a chemical balance capable of harboring life.

Robot squid to search for life in underground seas of alien moons

NASA scientists have come up with a pretty cool piece of machinery to fish around for alien life that may exist in subterranean seas found on many nearby moons.

NASA plans mission to Europa to find alien life

NASA has confirmed that it is planning a mission to Jupiter's moon Europa, thought to possibly have a vast ocean under its icy surface. NASA will be looking for "Europan" life.

Tectonics on Jupiter’s moon Europa — another similarity to Earth

Moscow - Planetary geologists report evidence that Jupiter’s moon Europa shows signs of plate tectonics, shaping and moulding the moon’s surface similar to geological activity on Earth.

We may go to Jupiter by 2025 and find life there

NASA hopes to launch a mission to Jupiter's moon Europa, the solar system's most likely heavenly body to hold alien life, by 2025.

Op-Ed: The European Union through the eyes of leading newspapers

Six Leading European newspapers jointly produce a supplement every half year with detailed analysis and perspectives concerning developments and problems within the European Union. Issue 4 deals with the dwindling public support for the EU.

Fancy an invigorating bath — How about Jupiter's moon Europa?

Could Jupiter's moon Europa could be the health spa destination of the future? Maybe. A new research paper by scientists from California Institute of Technology and NASA/JPL indicates that part of Europa's surface consists of Epsom salts!

Jupiter moon Europa may yield unexpected chemistry

Greenbelt - The frigid ice of Jupiter's moon Europa may be hiding more than a presumed ocean: it is likely the scene of some unexpectedly fast chemistry between water and sulphur dioxide at extremely cold temperatures.

Scientists have found evidence of plate tectonics on Jupiter's moon Europa. This conceptual illustration of the subduction process, where one plate is forced under another, shows how a cold, brittle, outer portion of Europa's 20-30 kilometer-thick ice shell moved into the warmer shell interior and was ultimately subsumed.

Based on new evidence from Jupiter's moon Europa, astronomers hypothesize that chloride salts bubble up from the icy moon's global liquid ocean and reach the frozen surface where they are bombarded with sulfur from volcanoes on Jupiter's innermost large moon
