3. Is that to scale?

Doesn’t that make the moon enormous compared to its planet size?

4. No. Except for Titan and our Moon, those are 4 of the 79 known moons of Jupiter...

5. Europa is the most interesting of all

It's a slushy snowball that is tidally heated by Jupiter's gravity. There could be some form of life there. That moon should be the target of our space explorations.
