Forget Mars, the place we really want to go looking for life is Jupiters moon Europa. Dr. Mike Brown, a professor of planetary science at Caltech, explains what he finds so fascinating about this icy moon, and the potential we might find life swimming in its vast oceans.

I rented the movie a couple months ago. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.
OUTSTANDING! That was the very first thing I thought of when I read the title of the article!
Great minds think alike!

(Deliver us from this evil, in Jesus name, amen.)
Actually, it was a pretty good movie on NETFLIX:

Looking for life should be secondary. Sure it would be one of the greatest scientific discoveries of all time but to what end?
Pathfinding and prospecting should be primary. Lewis and Clark didn’t hike to the pacific to find out if there were indians there, they hiked to the Pacific to find a path and seek things that might be of value for those who would follow.

Ever read 2061: Odyssey Three?
It was pretty good.

"It seems, we've been given a new lease...and a warning...from The Landlord."
I love that film because it answers all the questions from 2001. Clarke was one of the greatest.

You’re right, computers have really come a long way since the future!
yeah, definitely worth renting.

Europas has too much radiation from Jupiter to colonize, Ceres on the other hand is a far better choice, is closer and has lots of water.

What about Titan? I thought that might have life or at least water. Many mysteries are still out there! We need NASA back! Arise America! We don’t want Chinese driving that car we left on the Moon! Now that we found water there (on the dark side) we can support a base—from the moon—the rest of the planets! Then-—into deep space.

Then-into deep space.
Not without warp drive. The distances are too vast for even a crew's great grandchildren to arrive at the closer systems.
