NASA Tests Robotic Ice Tools to crack the surface of Icy Moons e.g Europa

Exploring Ocean Worlds with Robots.

The search for life beyond Earth needs robots. But to explore distant ocean worlds like Jupiter's moon Europa, we’ll need a new set of tools to drill through ice, reach faraway samples and cross difficult terrain. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory recently finished a series of prototypes that might make that exploration a little easier.

Those systems would face a variety of challenging environments. Temperatures can reach hundreds of degrees below freezing. Rover wheels might cross ice that behaves like sand. On Europa, surfaces are bathed in radiation.
