Europa and Titan two different worlds to explore

Europa and Titan two different worlds to explore

Europa and Titan are the two most interesting and different Moons in our solar system. Europa is an icy shell that probably harbors a salty ocean underneath. A rover with a heat missile of some design should be able to melt its way to the inside and find out if there is life. Titan has a nitrogen atmosphere that uses methane vapor for it's hydrological cycle, and probably frozen water underneath its surface. We need to send a rover to each to discover if we find life there and if man could survive there.
