Triumph: [oi60.tinypic.com image 620x349]


Okay, and how much would those assets have cost over the same time period if they were not engaged in this search?

This is cool and all but god dammit NASA when are we going to get a sub-ice probe of Europa happening? I'm not getting any younger and I would really love to see what's under there before I kick it.

Forgive me for having an imagination.

I was fine with your imagination right up until you got all demandy that people saying your musings were wrong were required to provide alternative theories or else they were somehow anti-scientific progress.

We all have our lines in the sand I guess.

Aso, thanks QA, however we WILL pull off life in space someday :p


What I was saying is ANYBODY can come into a thread and shiat all over while acting like a sanctimonious prick and giving nothing of value to the discussion.

To drop into a speculative discussion and say "ZOMG!!! You idiots! It would take THOUSANDS OF NUCLEAR BOMBS to get through that much ice" and then mock other people's speculation while offering nothing, that deserves to be called out.

Saying "you're wrong" doesn't mean science is on your side and if you're not going to offer anything more than "you're wrong" then you've contributed nothing to the conversation and should have your opinion just as readily dismissed.

I've not claimed to be a rocket scientist. I make my living as an artist but I don't see how someone who gives nothing  more to the conversation than pictures of Captain Picard and "thousands of nuclear bombs" is more qualified to have an opinion on the subject nor do I understand why his opinion should be beyond reproach.

But please, take all the umbrage you wish. They're just laying about in the lost and found anyway.

LOL.  Are you listening to me?  It's not possible.  There IS NO WORKABLE SOLUTION based on what you guys are saying.  Your ideas are dumb.  They demonstrate a fundamental lack of understanding of basic, BASIC, grade school stuff.  You'd have to go up there and build a nuclear power plant to do what you're proposing.

And - if I may go out on a limb here - if we had the ability to go up there to build a nuclear power plant, we'd probably be able to just send a team of drillers and dig a farking hole instead.  Somebody call Bruce Willis.


Are you people nuts? You can't sail west to India. If the sea dragons don't eat you first you'll sail off the edge of the world and then it's nothing but turtles all the way down.

I tell you what. If science hasn't come up with a solution to this problem before my 100th birthday I'll buy you a coke.

You are wrong is a perfectly valid response in science discussions. No alternate solution is required.

Sure, just saying "you're wrong" and nothing more is perfectly fine way to respond even if the more accurate response is "I don't know the solution so I will just ridicule those who are trying to answer it".

Thankfully science has never been satisfied with " I don't know" and if history has shown us anything when it comes to technology those who say "impossible" have often been shown to be woefully short sighted.

The surface ice is miles thick, possibly tens of miles. The deepest drill hole on Earth is about 7 miles deep and the equipment to make it wasn't required to fit inside a space probe.


But it's still ice. If you make a probe that heats it's casing to a temperature that melts through the ice and keeps going until it melts all the way through. No drilling required and gets rid of the problem of the ice being literally as hard as rock.
