Exploring submarine caverns kept liquid by the heat of volcanic plumes, the AUV Thalassa samples the life-forms coating mineral rich geothermal vents of Europa. It maintains a topside link to the nuclear meltprobe that delivered it to this subsurface ocean.

I wonder how hard it will be to prevent contamination with earth bacteria- certainly wouldn't want to induce a mass extinction or something

I think it would be very hard, which is why NASA has a planetary protection officer. Probably have to bath the probe in radiation

I just noticed it says Thalassa, which is Greek for sea.
