LOTS of analysis of the flagship mission options - Europa or Titan?

Topics:

Any day now we're going to be hearing about NASA's selection of the target of the next flagship mission; a meeting on the decision was held on February 12, but no result has been announced yet. If you're curious about the competing options, you can read the final reports on the two proposals at this NASA website -- hundreds and hundreds of pages of reports -- or you can take advantage of the work that's been done by Van Kane and Jason Perry to summarize some aspects of the Saturn/Titan and Jupiter/Io missions, respectively. (Of course, Jason, being Jason, is focusing primarily on what the Jupiter mission would do at Io.)
