Continuing our planetary theme for POTW we take another look at Jupiter as it begins to head westwards for this year.  On 2014-03-13 Martin Lewis captured this nice image of the King of Planets along with the exciting moon Europa.  What chances there is life in the water oceans they are discovering on the Jovian satellites?  What are the chances we can find out in our lifetimes?
