    I wouldn't say "nuke". Its more of a controlled collision with the planet.

    Besides, I think that NASA did what it did with a purpose. Or else why would they crash a multi-million dollar space faring probe.

    Fun? I doubt it.

    lol, if it implodes, then why will fission happen? wouldn't it be fusion? :?

    and the reason they threw it into the planet was the fear that it contained earth bacteria and might contaminate jupiter's moons which have been earmarked for possible alien life

    in jupiter itself? :nuts:
    the atmospheric pressure there will kill anything......and land in jupiter is a 70,000km plunge from the surface(atmosphere), if i remember correctly

    europa is earmarked to have life, it has underground pools of water apparently

    Kill life? Kill human maybe. Why does human always think that if the place is not liveable to human, that place will be without life? :think: :snooty:

    I don't know about the physics... but I do know that if this Jacco van der Worp is correct, Jupiter would have blown itself to bits by now. Nah... :haha: :haha: :haha:

    Well I believe alien lifeforms can exist in whatever environment there are... Even if it's not habitable to humans. There's this thing call evolution... It can take place and makes a lifeform live ANYWHERE.

    Yes, I am a fan of Star Control II :lol:

    Agreed. As long as the ingredients for life is around, it will definitely start and evolve.

    This is on the assumption that the theory of evolution is the correct theory.
