  NASA's Bill Nelson shows how sausage making will take America back to the moon Bill Nelson, the NASA chief, suggested that it would be a good idea if Congress could give the space agency about $11.6 billion of an infrastructure bill.German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck once famously said that one should not look too closely at how laws or sausages are made. However, a look at how the subcommittee hearings proceeded is a master class on the unseemly side of how laws, in this case NASA funding, are made.

NASA announced Friday to have chosen Spacex for its planned trip to Europe, icy moon of Jupiter. A beautiful $ 178 million contract for the company of ELON MUSK billionaire.

It's a Space X rocket that will take the next American astronauts to Europe, Jupiter icy moon. Just as for his next mission to the moon , the NASA chose the billionaire ELON Musk company for this future mission.

This is a major victory for Space who aims to venture further into the solar system.

The Europa Clipper mission will be launched in October 2024 with a Falcon Heavy rocket from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The contract amount is $ 178 million.

The mission should previously involve NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, which has experienced delays and cost overruns. Since SLS is not yet operational, Falcon Heavy has been deployed on commercial and governmental missions since its inaugural flight in 2018.

Conditions conducive to life?

It generates about 2,300 tons of push (22 million Newtons) with take-off, the equivalent of about 18 aircraft 747. The orbiter should perform 40 to 50 closer passages around Europe to determine if this icy moon may shelter conditions conducive to life .

It will be responsible for cameras and spectrometers to produce high resolution images and surface and atmosphere composition cards, as well as a radar to penetrate the ice layer and search for liquid water in below.
