Swarm of Tiny Spacecraft to Explore Europa’s Surface with Rapid Response

"A small spacecraft carrying a swarm of "chipsats" the size of postage stamps could someday explore Jupiter’s icy moon, Europa. NASA has funded early development of the unusual mission idea as it looks toward future space exploration of planets and moons that may contain both water and extraterrestrial life."

Imagine seeding the galaxy with something like this? Give us 100 years and the sophistication of such a tiny device could actually delivery life to other galaxies. 

Perhaps that’s what another civilization did, and that’s why we’re here.
