Timeline for EJSM-Laplace mission
Diagram of a notional timeline for EJSM-Laplace, assuming JEO and JGO are launched one month apart in 2020. The blue bar and triangles represent the JEO mission timeline and events (icy moon encounters and perijove). Red bars and triangles represent the JGO mission timeline.
The synergistic observations of magnetospheric and other dynamic phenomena in the Jovian system that would result are unprecedented in planetary exploration. The relative phasing of the two spacecraft can be adjusted to optimize the synergistic science opportunities of the EJSM mission.
