Russia launches probe to Mars moon

NASA has 2 hands just like the rest of us. The right hand doesn't know what the left does. I still wonder why Phobos. Its the closest moon to any planet and it will collide with Mars in about a million years (set your calendar).

Some say Phobos is part of Planet X (Cerbes or however it’s spelled) between Mars and Jupiter in the asteroid belt. In fact the asteroid belt is because 2 planetoids had a collision in space.

All these worlds are yours, except Phobos. Attempt no landing there. Use them together. Use them in peace.

Yeah the movie 2010: The Year We Make Contact made it very clear from HAL that Europa is NOT ours and we should not attempt any form of landing there. Science fiction yes, but I'm not sure we really want to find out if there is some truth to that. But, why Europa?

Europa almost certainly contains liquid water and is a possible home for extremeophile extraterrestrial life.

...and enceledas and titan and mars of course

Bigger problem is not finding the liquid water (Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, and oxygen is the third) but finding an environment where the solar wind doesn't simply fuck anything that tries to live.

If life can be found on europa and enceledas, it's going to be found 50 miles below the ice cover, well protected from anything, including us.

Man talking about moons and planets makes me even more excited about going on a space trip observing all the wonders that exist in this universe. I guess you can call it space porn.
