They work together, but not in the same place, or even the same state. They use technology to communicate their ideas and research findings. Part of the job of NAI teams is to train a new generation of researchers in the field of astrobiology and to reach out to teachers, students, and the general public. The NAI sponsors focus groups for specific subject areas. These focus groups are open to non-NAI members. The NAI has partnerships with international astrobiology organizations to help cultivate cooperation and interaction in astrobiological research around the world.

Scientific evidence suggests that liquid water existed below Europa’s icy crust in the recent geologic past and that liquid water might still be present today. Friction within Europa is created by tides and by interaction with Jupiter and neighboring moons. This friction might generate enough heat to create volcanoes at the base of the water layer. These factors and remote-sensing observations of salts on the surface and the presence of organic compounds (brought by comets) lead scientists to believe that Europa may have all the ingredients needed for life: an energy source, water (possibly liquid), and organic chemistry.

3). In January 1996, NASA released “Deep Field” images in which Hubble peered back in time more than 10 billion years. The Hubble Space Telescope so far has revealed at least 1,500 galaxies at various stages of development. 3] is eroding the pillar. The starlight also is . . illuminating the tower’s rough surface. Ghostly streamers of gas can be seen boiling off this surface, creating the haze around the structure and highlighting its three-dimensional shape. The column is silhouetted against the background glow of more distant gas.
