Europe's JUICE spacecraft ready to explore Jupiter's icy moons by Juliette Collen
'The beast' is unleashed: Europe's JUICE spacecraft was unveiled in France ahead of its planned launch in April.
Europe's JUICE spacecraft is all ready to embark on an eight-year odyssey through the Solar System to find out whether the oceans hidden under the surface of Jupiter's icy moons have the potential to host extraterrestrial life.
For now, the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) is in a white room of its manufacturer Airbus in the southwestern French city of Toulouse. But its days on this planet are numbered.
