Ice fishing on Europa (moon of Jupiter)


#1

It is just a thought experiment but this kickstarter campaign inspired me.

How awesome would it be if we would send an openROV to the (icy) moon of Jupiter? The capsule can crash in the ice and after some drilling the openrov can land in the hole and start discovering. By having a sattelite orbiting around Europa, it would be possible to gather the data. More here

If anyone starts a crowdfunding campaign for this, I would be happy to fund a part of it.

Sure we need better technology (but these technologies already exist, we just need to make them cheaper and more reliable).

I want to see that happen in the next decade. A mission to explore the ocean of Europa. Imagine what we could find
