NASA is running some experiment on deepwater exploration so that they can be able to explore the water world of Europa and Enceladus, the moons rotating around planet Jupiter and Saturn respectively.
On August 20, NASA will be sending a submarine down to the deep seafloors near Hawaii in a bid to find an environment analogous to the water world of the Europa and Enceladus. The space agency believes that by exploring the deep waters on …read more
