Scientists carried out more than 100 computer models in order to analyze these auroras of Ganymede. They concluded that the oceans present on the surface of the moon are around 60 miles thick. Generally, oceans are considered as one of the basic element for the emergence of life. Therefore, the latest discovery indicates that life may exist on the Ganymede.
