Today at 1pm CDT NASA will hold a live media teleconference to discuss recent revelations about activity on Europa. This activity has been revealed via images taken as part of a Europa observing campaign and may be related to the moon's subsurface ocean.

Audio of the teleconference will be available at NASA's website.

Today at 12pm CDT NASA will broadcast on both channels "Exploring Europa's Plumes". Planetary Science Division Acting Director Lori Glaze will host the program which will discuss Europa's ongoing status as one of the best locations in the Solar System to search for life. The show will be rebroadcast (again on both channels) at 4pm CDT and 8pm CDT.
