JUICE released into space

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023.

Join us for an out-of-this-world experience as Professor Michele Dougherty, a leading space scientist, will take us on a fascinating journey to Jupiter's icy moons, by sharing her experiences from leading an instrument on the European Space Agency's JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) mission, launched in April. 

As the Principal Investigator for the magnetometer instrument on the JUICE spacecraft, Dougherty shares insights into the mission's objectives of studying Jupiter's environment, as well as exploring its three icy moons: Ganymede, Callisto, and Europa. Her talk highlights the significance of the JUICE mission in unravelling some of the mysteries surrounding Jupiter and its moons, and the potential implications for our understanding of the origins of our Solar System and the possibility of extra-terrestrial life.

Professor Michele Dougherty CBE FRS is Royal Society Research Professor and Head of Department of Physics, Imperial College London.
