The Making of JUICE; celebrating TUD’s contributions to the JUICE mission. 

The Making of JUICE; celebrating TUD’s contributions to the JUICE mission. 
After a successful launch on 14th April 2023, ESA’s Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) is on its way to Jupiter to study its ocean-bearing moons – Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. On-board the spacecraft are two experiments with strong links to our faculty: the PRIDE experiment, which will use Very Long Baseline Interferometry to measure the gravity fields of Jupiter and its moons; and the GALA altimeter, which will measure the topography and tides of Ganymede. 
Join us on December 1st to discover how the JUICE mission went from dream to reality and to celebrate TUD’s contributions to the mission.
