Terraformed Europa map

If life exists beyond Earth in our solar system, it could very well exist on Europa. Slightly smaller than Earth's Moon and blanketed by sheets of ice many kilometers thick, it is theorized that Europa also has a sub-surface ocean of liquid water, warmed by the tidal forces of Jupiter's gravity.

As a water world, Europa will pose unique challenges to the first colonists who land there. It will be up to you to determine whether to leave it as-is and live on top of the ice, or to melt it and risk flooding the whole world.

About[edit | edit source]

Europa is a natural satellite of the gas giant Jupiter. It has no natural satellites.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

First of all you need to get rid from most part of the water. Build a lot of Ice Launchers. The Ice Launchers can get rid the pressure (because of its thin atmosphere). After you got rid of its teeny-tiny atmosphere an oxygen crisis occurs, getting rid of the oxygen rich atmosphere. After that you can begin heating up Europa.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Europa has a liquid ocean below the surface. It can probably have life.
  • Europa was named after Europa, the Phoenician mother of King Minos of Crete and lover of Zeus.
