Antarctica and Europa

Filed under: Antarctica,Europa,Ralph Buttigieg — ralphbuttigieg @ 11:43 am
Antarctica is a land of  wonders. One of them can be found at Taylor Glacier. There a reddish brown liquid gashes out of the glacier and has been named Blood Falls. The reddish color is caused by bacteria which was trapped under the ice millions of years ago. Although locked in a space without  sunlight they have prospered by obtaining their energy from sulfur and iron.
Now I know another place which  has water trapped under ice and gets little sunlight. Jupiter’s moon Europa.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Hmmmm……



  1. Hello Ralph great article.So life may be staring us in the face on the surface of Europa.

  2. Well it sure makes me wonder. I know NASA enhances its space photos but there must be something there in the first place to enhance.We can't be sure of course but may be, just maybe, something that looks like evidence of alien life is actually evidence of alien life.taRalph
