(mission to Jupiter in development)

JUICE (for Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer) is space mission to Jupiter in development by the European Space Agency for a launch around 2022 to go into Jupiter orbit around 2030 for 3+ years of observation of the planet and its Moons, finally orbiting Ganymede. A major goal is to characterize the moons' internal structure, especially any ocean layers under the surface.
