Based on new evidence from Jupiter's moon Europa, astronomers hypothesize that chloride salts bubble up from its global liquid ocean and reach the frozen surface where they are bombarded with sulfur from volcanoes on Jupiter's innermost large moon, Io.

This artist's concept of Jupiter's moon Ganymede, the largest moon in the solar system, illustrates the 'club sandwich' model of its interior oceans. Scientists suspect Ganymede has a massive ocean under an icy crust.
