Engineers from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) NASA developed and tested several prototype devices designed to study ice on the surface of other celestial bodies. This is reported on the NASA website. The surface of some celestial bodies can be partially or completely covered with ice. For the sampling of ice and drilling, traditional tools designed for hard rocks are not well suited, so NASA engineers develop prototypes of various instruments adapted for ice. It is expected that in the future such tools can help in the study of Titan, Europe, and Enceladus.
