NASA just announced that it will be revealing a surprising new discovery found on Jupiter's moon Europa. Many speculate that the space agency has finally found evidence of alien life in our solar system.

The findings, which would be deliberated by the space agency in detail on Monday, was announced in a press release. According to NASA, the findings on Europa include some findings that are rather "surprising."

"Astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean on Europa," the press release stated.

With the agency's choice of words, it was no surprise that the interest of UFO aficionados was immediately piqued. Europa is one of Jupiter's biggest moons, and scientists have long speculated that them massive moon has a huge ocean underneath a thick icy shell on the surface.

If there is indeed an ocean beneath Europa's icy exterior, there is a very good chance that scientists might finally be able to find life in places elsewhere in the Solar System.

This is not all, however, as scientists have also explored the possibility of Europa's speculated oceans to come in contact with the moon's rocky mantle. If this is indeed the case, numerous types of chemical reactions could take place, and some of them usually result in the development and formation of living organisms.

Currently, the images of Europa have been acquired through the use of the Hubble Telescope, one of the longest-running and most iconic space telescopes in the world. However, NASA has stated that plans for a manned mission to the massive moon are currently underway.

Before the manned mission does get initiated, however, NASA is planning to send a dedicated spacecraft to one of Jupiter's largest moons. The mission would reportedly perform about 45 flybys of Europa 16 to 1,700 miles above the sorters.

For now, space aficionados can at least look forward to NASA's press conference next week. After all, it is safe to assume that the world is eagerly waiting to find out what the contents of the revelation are.
