JUICE: Mission to Jupiter

JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) is an ESA-Mission to explore the waterrich moons Ganymede, Callisto, and Europa of planet Jupiter. Also of interest is the characterization of Jupiter's atmosphere and magnetosphere. JUICE will enter in orbit around Ganymede, while for Europa and Callisto only flybys are planned. JUICE will be launched in 2022 with an Ariane 5 rocket, arrival in the Jovian system is 2030.
