Elon Musk Wants to Send the SpaceX Dragon Capsule to Europa
In expendable mode, Falcon Heavy can send a fully loaded Dragon to Mars or a light Dragon to Jupiter's moons. Europa mission wd be cool.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 14, 2015
NASA believes it is likely that Europa's subsurface ocean contains alien life forms. They have already planned an exploratory mission to Europa, tentatively scheduled for the 2020's, but it would only be sending robotic rovers. If Musk has his way, he may be sending humans to planetary bodies like Europa and Mars; according to SpaceX, the Dragon capsule will be able to carry "a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel" in orbit around Earth.
@elonmusk And I'm sure dragon has enough solar panels, high gain radios and thermal control to carry out such a mission without mods. /s— Lars Osborne (@lars_0) September 14, 2015
