About the Bill Nye Interview

[Edit]: Oh how we wish we could stay and answer all of your questions. We had a lot of fun, but we all need to head off to talk about Europa later this afternoon on Capitol Hill (no livestream, unfortunately, but The Planetary Society will post a video).

Make sure to follow us on Twitter: @NASA, @EllenStofan, @TheScienceGuy, @exploreplanets, @CaseyDreier, & @NASAJPL if you have any additional Europa questions for Robert Pappalardo.

And go Europa!

Hey there, Reddit. We’re here to answer anything about Europa—the moon of Jupiter that probably has more liquid water than all the Earth’s oceans combined.

Europa also seems likely to have heat energy and nutrients. Combine those all together and you’re looking at a place that could be habitable for life at this very moment. It’s like having our own little goldilocks-zone exoplanet in our cosmic backyard.

We are:

  • Bill Nye, The Science Guy, and CEO of The Planetary Society
  • Dr. Ellen Stofan, NASA’s Chief Scientist
  • Dr. Robert Pappalardo, Europa Study Scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory
  • Casey Dreier, Director of Advocacy for The Planetary Society

Why are we doing this? Fundamentally we all love Europa and the mysteries associated with it. What, if anything, can be found in the great oceans of Europa? How could NASA look for life? What would it mean to discover life or even to discover that there is no life there? These are compelling questions, and we’re talking about them today in a special event in D.C. We had such a strong response, we decided to talk about it on Reddit, too.

Some good Europa resources:
