There is a problem with using Sulfur Hexafluoride to terraform Europa, and that is the freezing point of Sulfur Hexafluoride is much higher than Europa's mean temperature. So another gas or another form of heating will have to be used to boost the temperature where Sulfur Hexafluoride could be effective. Perhaps Methane, or using nuclear weapons to break open the ice sheets exposing the warmer seas underneath so they can convect, and then applying Sulfur Hexafluoride.

Living in Europan waters

I was thinking of submarine cities - actual submarines, converted into cities. Maybe create larger submarines than exist at present.


Nuclear-powered propulsion would not require refuelling often.


Using the ocean currents to generate power for cities might be another option.


Study of the Great Barrier Reef of Eastern Australia to determine how a reef ecology could be duplicated.

Image Criticizing

Not to criticize the image (of Terraformed Europa) or anything, but why exactly is one hemisphere covered by ice?
