ESA's Juice - Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer - mission targets Jupiter and its three icy moons, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. In fact, all have discrete amounts of liquid water below the surface and are ideal candidates for the search for extraterrestrial life. Making use of a suite of ten unique scientific instruments, four of which are under Italian responsibility, the mission will make detailed observations of the giant gas planet and its three large satellites to unravel all its mysteries.
