On that subject, this would: National Popular Vote Interstate Compact

States are signing on to allocate EVs toward the national popular vote winner.  Once signatories comprise a majority of EVs, the legislation activates.

We need 270 EVs.

We have 196 with 90 more pending.

I do like this image from their website.

Agreed! I am fully supportive of initiatives like this, and my state is already signed on. Yahoo for States' Rights!

First! Search the surface. The jets will entrain anything down there. We should be looking for frozen critters on the surface.

common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Saw a program the other day that suggests they will fly through one of the plumes before trying it on the surface.

We get that next year!

But hold out for the one the year after that.  It's weirder, but much better.
