Liquid Water on Europa and Dolphin Whistles help solve cosmic mysteries

Water is probably trapped in the ice shell of Europa. It would be interesting to see if there is life there or to seed life there and even more awesome to develop a colony there.

I really think that interdisciplinary approaches will lead to more and more insights as disparate fields connect from acoustics to neutrinos via dolphin whistles!
