Recently announced space probes from both NASA and the ESA will target various interesting moons for exploration. So far nobody's seriously proposing anything that'll drill down into Europa's seas, but it sounds like they're doing just about everything else.

I keep seeing different shows about folks working on probes to do just that. In fact, what sounded most probable was one that lands and then slowly melts its way through the ice, rather than trying to blast or drill. One it gets through, it'd start exploring from there.
