PRI­VATE PROBE TO ENCELADUS?

Sky at Night Magazine - - BULLETIN -

Break­through Starshot founder Yuri Mil­ner has an­nounced plans for a pri­vately funded mis­sion to Enceladus, which would search for life in the jets of wa­ter erupt­ing from it.

“We formed this lit­tle work­shop around this idea: can we de­sign a low-cost, pri­vately funded mis­sion to Enceladus which can be launched rel­a­tively soon, and that can look more thor­oughly at those plumes to try and see what’s go­ing on there?” says Mil­ner.
