I think that the advancement of nanotechnology will make certain things that today seem impossibly difficult much more practical. I think that within 50 years we will be able to land a probe on Europa with a mass of only a few grams that will be able to convert some native materials into key parts of the exploration and use of this and other solar system objects.

I'd love to think this will happen in the next 50-60 years or so but for some reason I am doubtful.
