Re: Europa moon Lander mission - science

It has been said a Delta IV Heavy cost around $270M per launch, so $500M per launch of a SLS out side of the fixed yearly cost seems reasonable and based on shuttle per launch costs.
$500 million to launch the SLS isn't even in the ballpark. The engines alone cost almost that much to purchase.
