Re: They've assumed

That might be true with earth penitentes but on Europa the ground surface is all ice (with pink bits) so a source of ablative ice is not a problem. I also strongly suspect the physics is a mite different when the sublimating ice is in a vacuum.

But then I'm only a Stamp Collector so what do I know but I do suspect your assumptions are wanting.
