BTW, I remember reading a detailed Europa Clipper mission proposal somewhere, but now I can't find it in my files.
Anybody here remember where it was posted?
A quick Google search came up empty.
Thnx

Maybe this is the one you were thinking of?

One thing that catches my eye is that virtually all of Europa would be mapped at better than 30m per pixel with a median of about 9m per pixel. Due to orbital mechanics that are easy to visualize (flybys just inside or outside of Europa's orbit), there is a rough 180 periodicity in the coverage with the sub-jovian and anti-jovian regions imaged with the best resolution and the leading and trailing regions imaged with the worst resolution. This is approximately 10 times higher resolution than Viking coverage of Mars.
