50. Even cooler - We're going to Europa!

NASA Mission to Europa Will Seek Conditions for Life



NASA's Europa spacecraft will use nine scientific instruments to assess the icy, ocean-harboring Jupiter moon's ability to support life, space agency officials announced today (May 26).

The Europa probe which is scheduled to launch in the early to mid-2020s will carry supersharp cameras, a heat detector, ice-penetrating radar and a variety of other gear that will shed light on the satellite's surface composition and the nature of its salty subsurface sea, among other things, NASA officials said.

So, we will attempt no landings?
