Future mission to Jupiter passes a milestone

Jupiter’s icy moons are the focus of Europe’s next large science mission. The Jupiter Icy moons Explorer – JUICE – mission will be launched in 2022 from Europe’s spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, on an Ariane 5, arriving at Jupiter in 2030 to spend at least three years making detailed observations of Jupiter’s moons. Recently ESA selected the instruments for the mission.
