This artist's rendering shows NASA's Europa Clipper spacecraft, which is being developed for a launch sometime in the 2020s. This view shows the spacecraft configuration, which could change before launch, as of early 2016.

This segment originally aired February 1, 2019.

Researchers believe the Jupiter moon of Europa could possibly be habitable. The natural satellite has an enormous ocean twenty times deeper than earth's and is covered by a thick, icy shell. JPL's Dr. Samuel Howell joins Idaho Matters to talk about NASA's Clipper Mission to Europa.
