Event Details

The largest and most massive planet in the solar system—Jupiter is a fascinating place. Its cloud topped atmosphere holds many secrets, its storms can rage for hundreds of years, and there may be a safe harbor for life somewhere among its 70 plus moons. While it has been the most visited of the outer planets by robotic spacecraft, Jupiter and its moons still have many places to explore, and they leave us with many things still to learn. If humanity is to explore the cosmos, it must understand places like Jupiter and how to interact with planets like it.
