NASA’s underwater rover will be going to Europa in search of life. via dailymail

It could be the rover that finds life on another planet.

Nasa has revealed its undersea rover has been scouring an aquarium in LA before being blasted off to Europa.

Provisionally called the Buoyant Rover for Under-Ice Exploration (BRUIE), this rover would normally float and have wheels.
