    Europa and the chance of underground oceanic life

    To start things off, this view is, to me, entirely too optimistic and misleading. YMMV. Squid or octopus life?

    I completely agree. I have lost count of the times on this and other forums I have made the observation that, to extrapolate from a sample size of one is madness. And that's all we have - one example of a biosphere.

    Grady may be an optimist, or she saw an opportunity to promote Liverpool Hope University, or it's a hangover from her time at ESA. One doesn't try to get a budget for a mission to investigate possible life on Europa with the line, "It's a real outside chance, and I doubt we'll find anything, but why not give it a go?"

    Could sea creatures under Europa's surface be GIANTS ? It's possible.

    And what did science fiction say about this possibility?
