    NASA is planning a mission to the Planet Europa. They say Alien Life is a possibility

    https://news.discovery.com/space/alie...hes-150202.htm

    As NASA applauds its boosted White House budget request for 2016, scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., are excited to see a robotic mission concept to Europa take a big step towards being launched in the mid-2020s.

    During a conference call to reporters on Monday, NASA chief financial officer David Radzanowski said the US space agency is requesting $30 million for preliminary studies into a mission to Europa for the year that begins Oct. 1. This is in addition to the $100 million Congress added to NASA’s budget to begin design work for a Europa mission last year.

    Europa is thought to possess a vast sub-surface ocean beneath its thick icy crust, kept in a liquid state via tidal interactions with the gas giant. Possibly containing three times the volume of water held in Earth’s oceans — and because on Earth, where there’s water, there’s life — astrobiologists hypothesize that Europa’s ocean might be quite a cozy place for biology to gain a foothold.

    Europa’s life-giving potential is exciting — it has liquid water, a heat source and possible nutrient cycling — but the JPL scientists are keen to point out that the Europa Clipper concept will not be a life-hunting mission.

    If the gov had kept funding us like this we would prolly be able to start living on the moon by at least 2040 lmfao.

    Keep in mind, these will most likely be micro-bacteria like life forms, not fishes and mermaids and stuff.

    I second this. Although it has not been proven that aliens are real, I can not believe that we are alone.
    You should take a look at this

    OT: This is really amazing. Thanks for the thread.

    If the government keeps putting money to something that has no direct benefit to our life here on Earth we will prolly have other issues that wouldn't permit us to live on the moon such as our own economy affairs.

    I'm not going to get into all the economics but what direct benefit have we achieved by going to Mars at this point? We haven't made any advancements that improve people's lives.

    Also, 'we'? The moon couldn't house even half of our current population.

    That's still something. We can take some of those plants, and study them at Earth.

    If me have a larger budget (18.5b isn't enough) NASA can develop suits, houses, and food, that can withstand the conditions of Mars. In return, we could live on their, while creating new life on a new planet.

    >micro-bacteria
    >plants

    Interesting interpretation. Nonetheless, this is possible, this type of a travel could have some benefit to us here on Earth, but it wouldn't be immediate. They'd have to first get back here on Earth and secondly if the micro-bacteria implies other life out there, we'll have even more questions and we would have to plan another travel. I would imagine we would have faster travel compared to our travel now by then, but the time is something to consider.

    And they can evolve over time. But that will take years ofcourse to process, although they are doing gene manipulation now, I thought. They were going to manipulate genes for a baby so they can't get a hereditary disease like breast cancer or anything? I could be wrong but heard something on the news.

    18.5b is well more than the rover to Mars costed if I remember correctly.
    NASA could develop these but like I said, once again, I'll reiterate, not a direct benefit to our lives HERE on Earth. Imagine how many of us would be here on Earth still. The transport we have now is shameless so I stand by my argument. You could bring some over, but the amount of transportation required to get even a few percent of the population would be unimaginable.

    You don't know this for sure. You do not know that going to this planet will produce these results. Only way to know is by going there and retrieving the bacteria. If it does, that would be amazing, but I think by the time the bacteria makes it back to Earth (implying NASA started the travel at about 2025) we should be much more advanced in this topics than we are now.

    If this "War" with the ISIS doesn't get solved quickly but will become bigger, lots of money will ofcourse go to war equipment etc. But I do not think that it will take that much of the budget. Government thinks this way: War>Science
