Lecture no. 13 from the course: Life in Our Universe

Liquid Assets—The Moons of Jupiter

Taught by Professor Laird Close | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Gas giant Jupiter is unlikely to inhabit life—but what about its moons? Look quickly at the importance that Galileo's discovery of Jupiter's moons had for the powerful Medici family before moving on to examine the connection between the moons' mean motion resonance and the possibility of subsurface life existing in the ice-covered oceans of Europa, Ganymede, and possibly, Callisto.
