Europa Clipper mission considered

6 posts in this topic

A proposed $2 billion spacecraft would perform several flyovers of Jupiter's enigmatic ice-covered moon.

Though NASA is devoting many of its exploration resources to Mars these days, the agency still has its eye on an icy moon of Jupiter that may be capable of supporting life as we know it.

Exciting, but it would be more exciting to see the $2billion go towards an expedited manned landing and eventual settlement on Mars.

I think it would be foolish putting all of NASA's eggs in one basket. NASA must continue to explore other worlds as well as Mars, just as they explored the solar system in the '60s and '70s whilst Apollo was ongoing.

The big question "are we alone in this universe" has been a driving force with NASA for many years. Mars and before that Venus were all predicted to have some sort of primitive life even up to the early 1950's.

It seems the more knowledgeable we become of our solar system and the universe, the more "alone" we seem to be.

NASA have said the search for life is the search for water.

They believe that these moons (Europa and to a point Enceladus) may harness the precious liquid under the ice.

After all these years NASA still amazes me.
