Jupiter’s moon Europa update

This December 2013 video is called Jupiter Moon Europa’s Water Plume Spied By Hubble – Artist Impression Video.

From Science Daily:

Signs of Europa plumes remain elusive in search of Cassini data

December 18, 2014

A fresh look at data collected by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft during its 2001 flyby of Jupiter shows that Europa’s tenuous atmosphere is even thinner than previously thought and also suggests that the thin, hot gas around the moon does not show evidence of plume activity occurring at the time of the flyby. The new research provides a snapshot of Europa’s state of activity at that time, and suggests that if there is plume activity, it is likely intermittent.
