A space journey to explore an alien ocean on a moon of Jupiter
Is there life on Europa and in our Solar System?
We’ll discuss this question and more in this interview with David W. Brown that will talk about just how close we are to finding an answer about alien life in our own backyard. David’s book, THE MISSION, discusses NASA’s Europa Clipper and the scientists & engineers behind this quest to explore this Jovian moon.
In this episode we are going to explore Europa, the ice moon of Jupiter, and the mission to get there. NASA is currently building the Europa Clipper spacecraft which will begin its voyage to the Jovian Moon in 2024. David is an award-winning writer, whose work appears frequently in The New York Times, Scientific American and Smithsonian. He is an Antarctic expeditioner, an endurance runner, a former U.S. Army paratrooper, and a veteran of Afghanistan. David just released his latest book: THE MISSION, an amazing behind-the-scenes narrative of NASA’s deep space mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa, where alien life just might exist in an ocean beneath the frozen surface.
