Ah yes…

Monolith to Earth: "All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landings there."

And never mind the horn. When I get 'Destiny' sorted, it'll need a full orchestra. (Must have a listen to Santana sometime.)

As good a reason as any to dust off a copy of '2010' with Roy Scheider and the lovely Helen Mirren. A favorite film of mine. Not too many sci-fi epics have an upbeat ending like that.

'Europa' was also a beautiful instrumental piece by Santana a few decades ago. Gives the impression of flying through clouds...

There has been talk about aquatic life forms on Europa for a few decades now. The dissolved gases present in any liquid water have always been the other big unknown. Could be adapted microorganisms, multi-cellular beasties or even real Sea Monkeys... Promises to be interesting regardless of findings.

Give that horn a good honk...

Someone out there in the Real World has been reading 'Collaborator'. (Dusts off own trumpet, gives it a quick blow, and returns it to case.)
