With an almost featureless blue exterior, Europa appears calm and tranquil, in sharp contrast to the rough cratered surfaces spread throughout the rest of the solar system. This is because Europa consists almost entirely of water ice, making it an ideal destination for both the NSDF and CCA. The ice provided boundless quantities of a vital resource, as well as a clear canvas for locating biometal.
Even more exciting, Europa did at one time and may still have active volcanoes that shoot warmer ice floes (spotted by the Galileo satellite) from beneath the surface. Evidence of a heated centre naturally suggests that the ice may melt at some depth, flowing freely within the moon's interior. This would make Europa the only other celestial body in our solar system with liquid water, and a leading contender for bearing life, albeit far from view.
Though lacking the distinct advantages and engineering opportunities held by Luna, Mars and Titan, Europa is a relatively safe gamble for finding and acquiring biometal with little environmental hazard.
