The Europa Orbiter
mission is part of NASA's Ice and Fire projects. This mission will
send a spacecraft to Europa to measure the surface ice thickness and
attempt to detect an underlying liquid ocean and measure its depth.
The mission would also study surface and interior processes to
determine the energy sources and response of the crust.
