Why a NASA spacecraft could bounce, crunch or sink on icy Europa

Why a NASA spacecraft could bounce, crunch or sink on icy Europa

Landing on Jupiter’s moon in search of alien life won’t be easy.

NewSpace NYC and NY Society of Security Analysts – A New Space Age Race: Interplanetary Investments

Three observations from tonight:
1) EVERYONE wants to be a leader but most are not visionaries.
2) A few are visionaries but lack the leadership, business skills and/or chutzpah to make it happen.
3) Then there are the very few with both vision and chutzpah to make it happen. But, they are not just the Musks or Bezoses, they are the smaller pioneers, some of whom I met tonight, and they are the key for getting to and crossing the tipping point to a vibrant commercial space industry/economy.
