Europa Jupiter System Mission

This video from NASA introduces a proposed mission to study potential habitable worlds around gas giants such as Jupiter. The Europa Jupiter System Mission, a proposed joint venture between NASA and ESA (the European Space Agency), would send two spacecraft to study Jupiter and its four largest moons: Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, and Io. Simulations show the locations of the moons' subsurface oceans and how spacecraft could collect valuable information about habitable environments in our solar system. This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions. This resource is part of the NASA Planetary Sciences Collection.
