Brilliant! A bit of ambition amidst the economic gloom and doom
 
we won't here about this again - and i doubt it will work 1st time round - we use too much tech these days!
 
At last, it's not American, or Chinese, it's European, but hell riding on a Russian rocket launcher, Hmmm?
 
+Poppy Peters Voyager 1 & 2 have been in space and hurtling away from us for around 33 years now, and they're both operating fine (until their nuclear batteries run out of power in around 2025)
 
+John Townsend the ESA actually uses Russia for a lot of launches, and they are of course one of the primary routes to the international space station for cargo and crew.
 
ALL THESE WORLDS
ARE YOURS EXCEPT
EUROPA
ATTEMPT NO
LANDING THERE
USE THEM TOGETHER
USE THEM IN PEACE
 
A cool project, bit sad that this means we will probably not put a lander on one these moons to probably explore the oceans until the late 40s or even the early 50s.
