Thanks, will give it a read.

Was this one of the reused rockets?

Hehe, what do you mean, that is another story, it just happened today, those type of rocket failures happen a lot. :)

I know it's a new story. Was just posting it.  :P I just mean Space X was due to launch one of the rockets they had successfully landed. Was wondering if this was one of them.

Absolutely f**king gorgeous. Really looking forward to seeing what they discover from Juno.

They gonna land? or just a fly by ?

(I'm getting tired of nasa just flying around... time to land some rovers on multiple planets/moons lol)

Haha...no they can't land on Jupiter. There probably isn't even any landmass to land on. You would also be crushed by pure pressure just entering it's deadly atmosphere! They've already sent something crash landing on Jupiter and it was crushed instantly. They may land on Europa someday but only with a rover for now. The Cassini mission is much more advanced right now, I believe they have something on Saturn's moon Titan but they are so cheap and secretive with their pictures...

And you can't land on Saturn either, it's another gas giant.

I know lol, i'm just saying they need to stop flying around and get some rovers on the moons/planets with a 'surface'

or would be interesting to send in a probe with some HD cams straight into Jupiter see what data we'll get before its crushed.

They landed the Huygens probe on Titan. It functioned for about 90 minutes on the surface.

I believe they're working on a mission proposal for a Europa mission but I'm not sure about Rovers and etc. They need to be careful of contaminating any possible life and etc.

I remember that, but why 90 min? power ran out? or dangerous surface?

As for Europa, it's a ball of ice, but they believe an ocean exists under it? if thy start drilling? makes you wonder, but i don't see them getting on Europa anytime soon.

Did you watch Europa report movie?  http://gb.imdb.com/title/tt2051879/
