Europa is the 6th closest moon of the planet Jupiter,discovered  in 1610 by Galileo Galilie.  Europa is primarily made of silicate rock and probably has an iron core. It has a tenuous atmosphere composed primarily of oxygen. Its surface is striated by cracks and streaks.We know that Europa ocean exist using telescope on ground and using spacecraft that have flown by Europa and collected data about surface,about interior structure and about magnetic field around the Europa.

ISRO gears up to launch IRNSS 1D

Chenna: After completing an eventful year, ISRO is gearing up for some satellite launches this year, with the IRNSS 1D being the first, which would put in place India's own navigation system on par with the Global Positioning System of the US.

"The launch campaign for IRNSS 1D has come, which starts on January 16. Within two months, all components from other ISRO labs have to reach Sriharikota. The launch is likely after March 15," a senior ISRO official told PTI.

IRNSS 1D is the fourth in the series of seven satellites, the national space agency is planning to launch to put in place the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS). While four satellites would be sufficient to start operations of the system, the remaining three satellites would make it more accurate and efficient.
