How much would you be willing to spend to find alien life? As Bill Nye explains in a new video, it might not cost you much more than a cup of java, according to The Huffington Post.
In the Big Think video, Nye, CEO of the Planetary Society, says that if each American taxpayer contributed the cost of just one cup of coffee, we’d be able to fund an exploratory mission to Europa — a Jupiter moon that some experts consider the likeliest place in our solar system to host extraterrestrial life.
“It would be extraordinary if there are living things there,” he says of Europa, which has more water than all of the Earth's oceans combined. “It would be a great. It would be a worthy thing.”
