Will nearby habitable planets influence space travel development?

With NASA’s recent announcement of Saturn and Jupiter’s moon being potentially habitable, how will this influence the world’s space programs? The Europa Clipper mission will launch in the 2020s to explore that moon in detail.

Exploring a moon in detail does not mean it will be inhabitable for humans. We’re talking about maybe finding some kind of aqua life. So far not even a fossil of a microbe from space has ever been found. We’d like to know if something like that exists elsewhere other than Earth.

You and I will never find those moons “potentially habitable.” Where did you get that idea from? They are not potentially habitable. They are potentially places where life may or may not have formed elsewhere other than Earth.
