EJSM Open Science Workshop, 17-19 May 2010
Start date: 18 May 2010
Address: ESTEC, Noordwijk, Netherlands
The Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM) is an international mission to the Jupiter system with joint participation from ESA and NASA.
The ESA-NASA Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM) consists of two primary flight elements operating in the Jovian system: the ESA-led Jupiter Ganymede Orbiter (JGO) and the NASA-led Jupiter Europa Orbiter (JEO). JGO and JEO will execute an extended choreographed exploration of the Jupiter System before settling into orbit around Ganymede and Europa, respectively. The overarching goal of EJSM is the study of the emergence of habitable worlds around gas giants. JGO and JEO will carry complementary instruments to achieve the following science objectives: characterize Ganymede and Europa as planetary objects and potential habitats, study Ganymede, Europa, Callisto and Io in the broader context of the system of Galilean satellites, and focus on Jupiter science including the planet, its atmosphere and the magnetosphere as a coupled system.
