A new crowd-researched space project is looking to launch an ambitious manned mission to Europa.

Quote

Consisting of what many scientists believe to be a vast liquid water ocean surrounded by an icy shell, Jupiter\'s icy moon Europa is considered to be the single most promising place in our solar system to look for signs of alien life. The problem is however that so far nobody has attempted to send a probe there to find out, but a talented group of space enthusiasts is aiming to change all that.

I'm no astrophysicist or whatever, but wouldn't first a probe make much more sense than a human suicide mission?

They say it is manageable with today's technology.  But how would a human crew survive the massive amount of radiation Jupiter sends out and floods it's moons?  Surely they would be dead long before arriving?

Outlandish, yes. But, what an interesting method, to allow many people to become investors in future science while vicariously adventuring to an alien landscape. Could be that imaginative scientific endeavors that pique interests at a global level can begin to build upon our common interests rather than obsessing on our differences. About that colony on Mars ...
