Europa - Ancient Goddess and Jupiterís Cream-skinned Moon

 

 

Text Box: She has the, youngest, smoothest skin of any of Jupiter's moons. Icy outside, she probably has a liquid water ocean below that future space voyagers will dip in. 
She is perhaps home to creatures living around 
volcanoes thought to exist on her ocean floor.
Europa is named after the mythical Phoenician 
princess who was seen by Zeus gathering 
flowers. Falling hopelessly in love with 
beautiful Europa, Zeus transformed 
himself into a white bull and carried 
her away to the island of Crete. 
He then revealed his true 
identity and Europa 
became the first 
queen of Crete.
