A space journey to an alien ocean

Is there alien life on Europa? We may find out sooner than you think. And it just might be at the bottom of an alien ocean on an icy moon of Jupiter.

In this episode we 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. Joining us today to discuss his new book about this mission is David W. Brown.

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.
