Removing copyvio text
I've removed some text, first a couple of days ago, and again just now. There seems to be confusion about what text is PD and what isn't.
- http://www.planetary.org/blogs/casey-dreier/2013/20130905-no-asrgs-for-europa.html is not PD, it is copyright, and must not be used verbatim, it must be paraphrased, also be careful of close paraphrasing.
- http://futureplanets.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/europa-clipper-update.html is not PD, it is copyright, and must not be used verbatim, it must be paraphrased, also be careful of close paraphrasing.
I have no idea why the content has been replaced with the edit summary "Re-writing, paraphrasing and referencing to comply with WP:Public domain#Government works, Thanks." but it is wrong, neither of the sites listed above are government, or government affiliated, the first is the website of "The Planetary Society is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization." and the second is the a personal blog, who states " I don't have any formal tie to NASA or planetary exploration (although I use data from NASA's Earth science missions in my professional work as an ecologist)." The close paraphrased/verbatim text that I identified in my DYK review as being from NASA I left, as that is acceptable, the content I removed is by no stretch of the imagination PD, and it worries me that you think it is.

- What does "PD" mean? 2602:306:BDA0:97A0:466D:57FF:FE90:AC45 (talk) 22:26, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
I've revised the importance of this article for WikiProject Spaceflight from Low to Mid, and added to the article a section explicitly discussing launch options. Both of these are because the importance of this mission takes on a new meaning (i.e. added politics) in the context of it being a possible payload for SLS. (sdsds - talk) 00:00, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
