A JUICE-y look at Jupiter from Earth

spacecraft: ESA/ATG medialab; Jupiter: NASA/ESA/J. Nichols (University of Leicester); Ganymede: NASA/JPL; Io: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona; Callisto and Europa: NASA/JPL/DLR

In 2022, the European Space Agency will launch the Jupiter ICy moons Explorer — JUICE — toward the innermost of the gas giants. It'll take more than seven years to get there, and once it arrives it'll go on a series of looping orbits to get close-up views of the big Galilean moons of Jupiter, something we haven't seen in many years.
