As clean as possible...let's call it.

So there's always the possibility of contamination? Sux. But I'm sure there are ways a probe could see through the ice at its thinnest portions, so we would not have to drill through.

One of the better threads I have started! (Probably more interesting than a discussion on parliamentary democracy I'll admit lol)

Don't discount this upcoming Mars landing...it's designed to hunt for signs of life. Four more days...

Amazing! One wonders how far away we are from a colony. I think the people who have so far reserved "seats" on a potential Martian mission are jumping the gun, though.

 

Due to the approx 2 year wait for opposition, Mars missions with humans aboard will have to be WELL thought-out.

Welcome to the topic, James. Do you own a telescope? (doesn't matter if you don't; we're just talking astronomy here.)

When I saw that in the summary I thought you'd lost it.  I thought you were talking to yourself...

Thule is a KBO, isn't it?

 

Possibly...but it is definitely a TNO.
