[JUICE completed the final assembly test, on which a plaque commemorating Galileo was installed] The ESA Jupiter Ice Moon Explorer (JUICE) has been completed in Toulouse, France
The ESA Jupiter Ice Moon Explorer (JUICE) has completed final assembly testing in Toulouse, France, and is scheduled to be shipped to the French Guiana Space Center in early February and launched by an Ariane 5 rocket in April this year. After that, it will fly by the Moon once, Venus 1, Earth 3 times, asteroid 223 Rosa 1 time, through multiple gravitational acceleration into the orbit of Benmu, and finally arrive in July 2031 8 years after the launch to begin ringwood, and it is expected to enter the orbit of Callisto in December 2034 after completing 35 flybys to Europa/March/IV.
It is worth mentioning that on January 20, as the final step of the final assembly test, a commemorative plaque (Figure 6) was installed on JUICE, which excerpted several pages of Galileo's book Sidereus Nuncius (Galileo's observations of Ganymede) in honor of the Italian astronomer Galileo Galileo, who discovered the 4 ganymede. After this event, JUICE will be packed and ready to fly to the Kulu launch site.
JUICE plans to probe Jupiter's atmosphere and its magnetic field, and focuses on orbital exploration of Europa, studying the presence of liquid water in Europa/III/IV, and assessing the possibility of the three supporting the existence of life. (Source: ESA/Airbus)
