Qty:   

Frozen atmosphere, bands of dichroic ice sheets and a sweep of bubbles complete Jupiter's moon.

Cased in crystal clear glass, a window is cut for a magnified or direct view of Europa. Price includes an engravable marble presentation base.

Europa, discovered by astronomer Galileo in 1610, was surveyed by the Galileo space probe launched aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis in 1989.

The design is inspired by the probes discovery of Europa's frozen ice surface and 60 mile deep ocean. The probe was later plunged into Jupiter to protect Europa's oceans from contamination.

Zeus, enamored of Europa's beauty, changed his form to a white bull carrying her off to become the first queen of Crete. He later created a white bull in the stars, now known as the constellation Taurus.
