Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme Dr Robert Pappalardo, Senior Research Scientist in the Planetary Science section at Nasa said: "For reasons I don't really understand the wider solar system and the potential for life there has not been high priority."

He raised concerns about explorations of the icy moons of Jupiter, known as the Europa Mission, being delayed by Nasa in favour of exploring Mars instead.
