Following on the heels of its success with the Mars Curiosity rover, NASA could next send a lander to Jupiter’s ice-filled moon Europa to determine whether it is habitable.
This submersible is barely the size of two soda cans, yet scientists think it might be useful for finding life on and around other planets, including Jupiter’s Europa, an ice-covered moon.
