Exploration and Development

My may intersts in space exploration are the search for life, and economic development. For the first I am hoping to see missions soon, to places like Europa, Ganymede, and Titan. For the second I would like to see exploration of the Moon resumed. The Moon seems like the place with the best hope for economic development. There is likley vaulable resources, there is enough gravity that industrial processes used on earth would probably work with little change, there is a small enough gravity well to get on and off cheaply, and it is near enough to drastically reduce risks, and enable things like real time remote operation. Also communication back to Earth is much easier.
