ESA Juice Mission

A talk by Nigel Bannister (Leicester University)

In 2022, JUICE will begin a 7.6 year cruise to Jupiter to spend three and a half years in the Jovian system. Its main mission will be to explore the huge planet's three largest icy moons in the hope of determining whether life is possible on these dwarf planets

Nigel is the Co-Investigator on J-MAG (Principal Investigator Prof. Michele Dougherty, Imperial College London) the Magnetometer instrument selected for flight on ESA's JUICE mission to Jupiter. He is responsible for the radiation design of the instrument, working with the teams at Imperial College London, Technical University Braunschweig, and the Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, to ensure that the instrument is capable of surviving in the extreme radiation environment around Jupiter and its moons, He is the interface between ESA and the instrument for this area.
