    Nasa backs terrifying robo-squid set to scour Europa's underground oceans for signs of alien life

    • Antenna on its back harvests power from locally changing magnetic fields
    • Could prove life on Europa is powered by electromagnetic energy
    • Liquid ocean on Europa could be 62 miles (100 kilometers) deep

    Nasa has unveiled a 'robosquid' it hopes could find alien life.
    The 'soft robot' is being developed to explore underground oceans of planets like Europa.

    This rover would resemble an eel with a short antenna on its back that harvests power from locally changing magnetic fields, and could soon scour Europa looking for life.

    It is one of 15 proposals for study under Phase I of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC), a program that aims to turn science fiction into science fact through the development of pioneering technologies.

    Alien life? What's it really looking for?
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.
