About the Mission:

NASA's Europa Clipper mission is scheduled to launch in 2024 on a journey to explore Jupiter's ocean moon – the next frontier in our search for life beyond Earth. Arriving in 2030, the spacecraft will perform dozens of close flybys of Europa, gathering detailed measurements to investigate whether the icy moon could have conditions suitable for life.
