JUICE will head to Jupiter

The European Space Agency is preparing a mission to explore Jupiter and its moons. JUICE will launch in 2022 in search of liquid water that could contain life. Europe is to mount a 1 billion-euro mission to Jupiter and its icy moons, moving ahead with an ambitious plan deemed too expensive by the United States. After more than eight years of review, the European Space Agency (ESA) has given the green light to a space program to explore the giant gas plant and several of its moons - in search of liquid oceans that may harbor life.
