October 2023 - Exploring Ocean Worlds: Europa Clipper Is One Year From Launch
Time: 7 p.m. PDT (10 p.m. EDT; 0300 UTC)
In October 2024, NASA’s Europa Clipper spacecraft will begin its 1.8-billion-mile journey to Jupiter’s icy moon Europa. It will investigate if an ocean thought to lie beneath Europa’s icy crust could support life. Join Europa Clipper Mission System Manager Al Cangahula and planetary scientist Kate Craft to learn about the spacecraft’s assembly and preparations for launch, and how Europa Clipper’s detailed exploration of Europa will help scientists better understand the astrobiological potential for habitable worlds beyond our planet.
