Take a look at this recently posted by Dr. Mike Brown, CalTech. It's a little long, but interesting.

I would love to have some salt from Europa in my salt shaker...:grin:

I'm sure it would add a cosmic bounce.. :bounce:

Kind of supports my long-held argument that we don't really need to drill down to the sea, we just need to look for fossils on the surface.

Like the land masses of Earth, the ice covering of Europa is a living, breathing evolving system involving direct interaction and exchange with the ocean beneath.

:lol:

Our dog's vet is one of the Iditarod vets. Goes up there evry Iditarod. Knowing her, I'd bet she would be first in line to go to Europa for the Iditarod. She's a REAL outdoor kind of gal.

If that happened, I guess they would have to change their tag line to "The Last Great Race on Earth and the First Great Race Off World"
