I've long been fascinated by what's lurking under Europa's crust, so I hope this mission goes ahead.

My idea: take a big cool bag and bring back some extraterrestrial ice to sell to billionaires for their cocktails. They could probably recoup their costs


That ice would have to be sterile

Because space science doesn't work like Big Brother.

Most people wouldn't have a clue what they're looking at because basic science education is poor in a lot of the country. You'd be asking for billion dollar spacecraft to be turned over to the 'wisdom' of idiots.


As nicely demonstrated on the Curiosity "anomalies" thread.

"Stuff your science program - I wanna drive over and look at this rock that looks a bit like a dog..."
