Olivier Witasse (ESTEC) - JUICE : A European Mission to Jupiter and its Icy Moons

Vendredi 23 mars 11:00-12:00

JUICE - JUpiter ICy moons Explorer - is the first large mission in the ESA Cosmic Vision programme. JUICE is due to launch in May 2022. It will arrive at Jupiter in October 2029, and will spend three years characterizing the Jovian system, the planet itself, its giant magnetosphere, and the giant icy moons Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. The spacecraft will then orbit Ganymede for a few months. One of the main goals of JUICE is to explore the habitable zone around Jupiter. Ganymede is a high-priority target because it provides a unique laboratory for analyzing the nature, evolution and habitability of icy worlds, including the characteristics of subsurface oceans. The payload consists of 10 instruments plus a ground-based experiment using the VLBI network. The speaker is the JUICE project scientist and he will explain the mission, the science, the challenges (technical, human), with the help of short videos and animations.
