- NASA is building a spacecraft called Europa Clipper and ESA (European Space Agency) has launched a mission called JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer).
- Most of what we know about Europa comes from several years of orbital observations by the Galileo and, currently, the Juno spacecraft.
- The moon was first observed up close during the Jupiter flybys of Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2.
- Europa, one of the first moons discovered beyond Earth, played a crucial role in understanding how our solar system works.
