Europa Missions - NASA Flyby Mission & ESA JUICE Mission

Europa-pia19048.jpgNASA's Mulpiple Flyby Mission
The Europa Multiple Flyby Mission will conduct detailed reconnaissance of Jupiter's moon Europa to see whether the icy moon could harbor conditions suitable for life. The mission will carry a highly capable, radiation-tolerant spacecraft that would perform repeated close flybys of the icy moon from a long, looping orbit around Jupiter.

ESA's JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE)
The first large-class mission in ESA's Cosmic Vision 2015-2025 programme. Planned for launch in 2022 and arrival at Jupiter in 2030, it will spend at least three years making detailed observations of the giant gaseous planet Jupiter and three of its largest moons, Ganymede, Callisto and Europa
