What Would It Be Like to Live on Jupiter's Moon Europa?
Jupiter's moon Europa suffers from extreme cold and deadly radiation, but its astronomical and geological sights are unique in the solar system.

This Is The Submarine NASA’s Wants To Use To Explore Titan | IFLScience
Saturn is orbited by 62 official moons, the largest of which is Titan. However, Titan is not your average satellite - larger than the planet Mercury, Titan has a thick nitrogen atmosphere and a large liquid hydrocarbon lakes on the surface. Unfortunately, it has been difficult to obtain much information about the lakes’ depth or composition from the orbital missions. NASA has recently revealed what a conceptual submarine mission to Kraken Mare, t...

Signs of Europa plumes remain elusive in search of Cassini data -- ScienceDaily
A fresh look at data collected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft during its 2001 flyby of Jupiter shows that Europa's tenuous atmosphere is even thinner than previously thought and also suggests that the thin, hot gas around the moon does not show evidence of plume activity occurring at the time of the flyby. The new research provides a snapshot of Europa's state of activity at that time, and suggests that if there is plume activity, it is likely inte...

The Moon Was A First Step, Mars Will Test Our Capabilities, But Europa Is The Prize | IFLScience
The icy moon Europa is perhaps the most tantalising destination in our solar system. Scientists have been trying for years to kickstart a mission to Jupiter’s most enigmatic moon, with very Earth-like concerns over costs keeping missions grounded until now.

Crowd-researched manned mission to ice moon Europa
Introduction
Official Google+ site for Objective Europa 

Objective Europa aims to send human beings to Jupiter’s icy moon, Europa, on a one way mission in search of extraterrestrial life while expanding the borders of exploration and knowledge for all mankind.

The starting point of Objective Europa is purely theoretical, but will move into more advanced phases including prototyping, technology try-outs, and eventually a manned launch.

Objective Europa is a crowd-researched project made up of an international team of volunteers. Many people from a wide range of backgrounds have already joined and become a vital part of the mission. We encourage you to join us and help in any area you are interested in. You do not have to be a rocket scientist or astrobiologist; site maintenance, social media control, conference arrangement, lobbying (and much more) are equally important tasks.

The destination for this manned mission is Jupiter’s sixth closest moon, Europa. Its deep ocean and active geology provide a solid platform for extraterrestrial life, making Europa one of the most enticing locations to explore in the solar system. The 600 day flight required to reach Europa is manageable with today’s technology, and the many challenges of such a mission pose a perfect starting point for new research and innovative thinking.

If you find ice and water more appealing than Martian deserts, we invite you to join our project and help us take the first steps towards exploring Europa.
