I already read that it was a significant amount, now this news article tells it's only 25 gallons Tongue.

What the article is saying is that 25 gallons is a significant amount, which is puzzling to me.

Now, if it were beer then that'd be a significant amount if I drunk it all Wink

That's 25 gallon / 100 liters in the ejecta from  a 20-30 meter crater? I don't know how much that is. Not completely dry for sure, but it might be too expensive to extract it. On the other hand, they hit a random spot. With some proper prospecting they could find a mother lode, perhaps?

Ganymedes and a bunch of other Jovian moons have a lot of water-ice, and some are believed to have subterranean oceans.

I would love to see a Europa mission in my lifetime. If there's any clear evidence of life on other planets it's this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extremophile. To me it's not a question of whether there's life on Europa or Ganymede, but when we'll find it.
