Weekly Roundup

Well, the flagship mission downselection wasn't announced last week, but that doesn't mean last week wasn't quite busy as we took at look at several more LPSC abstracts and the more detailed reports for the Europa/Jupiter System Mission. So let's take a look back at the week that was at the Gish Bar Times for those who are just joining us:
So what is coming up this week? Well, hopefully early this week the decision of the downselection panel will be announced, whether a mission has been selected, or as Van Kane has suggested could happen, the panel could pass this decision on to a scientific committee if the earlier panel can decide between the two based on budget or technological considerations. If the Titan mission is selected, I will discuss the options Io and Europa have moving forward. If the Europa mission is selected, I will discuss more about where the EJSM goes from here as well as more on Final Reports.
