Deep beneath the ice-crust of Europa, lies its famous subsurface ocean. Having existed for billions of years, this ocean now harbours a huge range of life forms on its sea floor.
However, in trying to design some of these life forms, I have run into a problem: I would like all the major phyla of europan life forms to possess infra-red vision, capable of detecting differences in heat of as little as 0.001 degrees from up to 5 metres away. But I am struggling to design an organ capable of doing this.
What hypothetical organ could reach the limits described above, and how would it be structured?
