These Five Jupiter Mysteries Will Be Solved by Europe’s JUICE Mission.

The European Space Agency (ESA) has released a film summarising some of the important questions. That this spacecraft will aim to address concerning this large, gorgeous, gas giant world and its many moons. The JUICE mission to Jupiter is schedul to launch in 2023.Five Jupiter Mysteries Will Be Solved by Europe’s JUICE Mission.

The characteristics of Jupiter’s ocean-containing moons will be the first topic JUICE will look at. Four of Jupiter’s largest moons. Europa, Callisto, Ganymede, and Io, are thought to have oceans of liquid water beneath their surface (via Scientific American). Even though Jupiter and its moons receive very little sunlight due to their distance from the sun, oceans may nevertheless exist. There beneath the frozen crusts of the moons due to tidal forces. Frictional heat is produce by the gravitational force and pull between these moons and Juptier. An ocean of liquid water could be able to survive under this heat.

The three huge ocean-containing moons Ganymede, Callisto, and Europa will be studied by JUICE in order to learn more about them. As potentially habitable destinations in our solar system.

Why Ganymede possesses a magnetic field is a further enigma that JUICE will investigate. It is the only moon in the solar system that is known to have its own magnetic field. Which produces auroras around the moon that are made of burning hot gas (via NASA). Due to the moon’s proximity to Jupiter and its inclusion inside its magnetic field. It is believed that Ganymede’s magnetic field may be connected to Jupiter’s magnetic field. Another hypothesis holds that the iron in the moon’s core flows around and generates the magnetic field on Ganymede. In order to learn more about Ganymede, JUICE will enter orbit around the moon.

The big question

Whether there has ever been life on any of Jupiter’s moons. And whether they are potentially suitable for microbial life are two of the key concerns that JUICE seeks to address. All three of the moons that JUICE will visit have the potential to be home to life. And Juice was built to investigate. Whether life has ever existed there or might do so in the future (via ESA).

A total of ten instruments, including an optical camera, various spectrographs, altimeters, radar, gravity measurement equipment. And more will be available to JUICE to aid in its investigation of these settings. Along with these concerns, JUICE also seeks to shed light on two more questions. How the environment of Jupiter has shaped its moons, and how the moons have shaped the planet. The mission will also look into the formation of gas giants like Jupiter in relation to this.

Because of its numerous moons. Jupiter serves as an excellent test laboratory for these issues. Because there are still many facets of the solar system’s origin that we do not yet fully comprehend. Researchers seek to gain more knowledge about the circumstances necessary for a planet to originate by examining the moons (via ESA).

The JUICE mission is slated to take out from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana between April 5 and April 25, 2023. Before arriving at Jupiter in 2031. It will sail through a number of other planets in the solar system. And conduct a series of flybys before beginning a 20-year study of the planet and its moons.
