That's unfortunate...I remain confident though that we'll make it there within our lifetimes, maybe even within the next 20 years

Yeah, the Europa thing is just a personal facination with me lol. I've read a little about that moon, and I guess it just stands out the most for me. I don't know how far a machine is capable of drilling, but scientist estimate that the crust is a few kilometers thick, and the ocean may be internally heated...It's facinating to think how many bodies out there are still geologically active!
