- There are a lot of interesting sites with reviews of why we think Europa has an ocean, such as this
- The key piece of evidence, though, comes from the Galileo magnetometer. A detailed paper on these results can be found here.
- The Wikipedia article appears accurate and up to date.
- The McKay paper on astrobiological implications is fun to read.
- I wrote a few interesting papers on clouds and circulation on Titan, back in the day. And fog, too.
- Wikipedia has quite a good overview of Titan.
Life on Titan
- Wikipedia discusses and links the papers we considered
- Has link to McKay paper
- Wikipedia has too much peripherally relevant detail and is thus hard to read
- A simple explanation is here
- You can view the ever-expanding gallery of planets in some version of some habitable zone here
- I think this is a very nice review paper
- I am a big fan of the Mearth project
- The paper by Carl Sagan is well worth reading
