NASA announced May 26, it has selected nine science instruments for a mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa to investigate whether the icy moon has conditions suitable for life. The instruments, targeted for launch aboard a robotic probe in the 2020s, include cameras and spectrometers to collect high-resolution imagery; an ice penetrating radar to measure surface thickness and look for subsurface lakes; and a magnetometer to measure the strength and direction of the moon’s magnetic field, and allow scientists to determine the depth and salinity of the moon’s ocean. The mission will collect data during a series of close flybys of Europa during a three-year period. Also, Commercial Crew update, Space station module relocated, Bolden visits space companies, SLS engine test, Supersonic vehicle test and more!

  3. I would've hoped, in the very least, a mission to Europa could include a basic lander with camera and broadcast that could get to IO, so we can get a closer look at the surface. I'm guessing that would take a lot of resources and effort.

  4. what are moon rocks from a private pioneer worth 5 ounce rock and is there a place that buys meteorites could you suggest one or two place please how much are meteorites worth '
