Unmanned probes “maybe” found life in Jupiter. Nothing was certain, and this brought fearless entrepreneur and adventurer, Jeb Newcastle into the orbit of Jupiter.
The press took pictures as Newcastle stood before his probe.
“The first mission should be unmanned,” muttered Genelle.
“It’s too dangerous,” warned Chang.
Newcastle grinned for the cameras. “Because of what? Microbial life? Don’t be daft!”
Hours later, Genelle and Chang watched the camera feeds as Newcastle’s probe dove.
“There’s one now,” crowed Newcastle. “Lovely! Oh my, it’s quite lar…”
When the feed cut, Genelle sighed, “Well, Jupiter has life.”
Chang nodded, “And its got huge teeth.”
