EJSM - L Class Mission Extension to Assessment Phase

Lead Research Organisation: University College London
Department Name: Mullard Space Science Laboratory

Abstract

This early assessment work on the ESA/NASA Europa Jupiter System Mission focuses on the science objectives and instrument development for the next large planetary mission to the Jupiter system. The mission will consist of two separate spacecraft, an ESA-led Jupiter-Ganymede Orbiter and a NASA-led Jupiter Europa Orbiter. This mission will allow us to better understand how the gas giant planets and their satellites formed and evolved and will shed light on the potential emergence of life in our solar system.
