Wellllllllll….they have to find *something* for SLS to do

NASA budget proposal to initiate Europa mission plan. They set aside enough money to get to KDP-A, which my NASA Systems Engineering Handbook says evaluates trade studies and settles on an overall design and concept of the mission.

The big question seems to be “orbiter” versus “lander”, with an orbiter costing about 50% less than a lander. With the ice on Europa being several miles thick, I’m guessing “orbiter” will get the nod.
