Jupiter Moon Lander Project to Get First Funding in 2014


RIA Novosti said:

MOSCOW, March 5 (RIA Novosti) - Russia’s Jupiter research project, which includes a Ganymede lander mission, will receive its first funding next year, an aide to the Federal Space Agency Roscosmos chief said on Tuesday.

“The project has been included in the Federal Space Program until 2015; next year, first funding for the project will be supplied, though so far it is not very large,” said Roscomos’ Viktor Voron.

Ice for the vodka.

But, it's nice to see someone attempting to explore the ice moons of the solar system. If there is life outside the Earth, seem like a good place to look. Of course the life, if it exist, will not be easy to reach.

Russians seem to be willing to attempt some difficult missions; I recall the Venera missions to the inhospitable Venus as being remarkable.
