  • Named Juice (the JUpiter ICy moons Explorer), it is scheduled for launch in 2022 and arrive in the Jovian system around Jupiter eight years later. Dubbed the Juice (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) spacecraft, the mission will look at whether the frozen worlds which surround gas giants could support extra-terrestrial life.
  • A spokesperson for the ESA said: “For three and a half years, JUICE will sweep around the giant planet, exploring its turbulent atmosphere, enormous magnetosphere, and tenuous set of dark rings, as well as studying the icy moons Ganymede, Europa, and Callisto.
  • Juice will be equipped with 10 separate state-of-the-art instruments, including cameras, spectrometers, an ice-penetrating radar, an altimeter, radios and sensors to monitor the magnetic fields and charged particles in the Jovian system.
