An experiment recreates the crust of Jupiter’s moon Europa

Water, salts and gases dissolved in the huge ocean that scientists believe could exist below Europa´s icy crust can rise to the surface generating the enigmatic geological formations associated to red-tinged materials that can be seen on this Jupiter’s satellite. This is confirmed by the experiment carried out in the laboratory with water, carbon dioxide and magnesium sulfate.
