Earth is pretty lucky when it comes to being missed by potentially deadly bits of space rock, but that's not the case with Jupiter. It's a much bigger target, and things that might go right by us tend to slam into it, most recently on Monday. And this time, someone got it on video.
The way things have been going lately over at NASA, it often seems like we'd be lucky just to see another Moon mission before we all die. But some NASA researchers are still aiming high, beyond our own Moon and beyond even Mars. That's right; it's time to land something on Jupiter's moon, Europa.
Yesterday we heard that Russia's planning to put their first man on the moon by 2030, something a lot of people see as a real long shot given the state of their space program. Well, it turns out they don't just want a moonshot by 2030. They want much, much more.
