„Europa, we are coming!“ – ESA’s JUICE mission
Exclusive livestream from Planetarium Hamburg in cooperation with ESA and IPS
Cosmic camels would choose Europa!
‚Where there is water, there is life‘!?
Jupiter’s icy moons host lots of it, at least water. Even more than Earth.
ESA’s space probe JUICE launched on April 14th, heading towards Europa, Ganymede and Callisto with their hidden oceans, to find out more about the possibilities of extraterrestrial life in the universe. (JUICE stands for JUpiter ICy moons Explorer and was developed and built by Airbus for ESA.)
After a final Ariane-5-launch on April 14 from Korou, JUICE is now on its way to Jupiter. Yet, there is a whole bunch of swing-by-manoeuvres along Venus and Earth necessary before the probe makes it final push to the outer regions.
On this occasion representatives of ESA are the guests on the stage of Planetarium Hamburg: The mission heads of „JUICE“ will report on Jupiter and its moons, on the „JUICE“ spaceship, and on its research goals: What is found under the ice of the „Europa“ ? And what mysteries will Jupiter itself reveal to us?
Join us on a fascinating voyage of discovery to the „King of the Planets“ and his companions!
The event will be presented in English, and will be broadcast live from Hamburg to the participating planetariums worldwide.
Join us for free at Munich Public Observatory (Volkssternwarte München) on the new International Day of Planetariums on May 7, as we are swiftly approaching the opening ceremony of the centennial on October 21, 2023.
Der internationale Livestream ist in English. Fragen und Diskussionen vor Ort sind auch auf Deutsch möglich.
Due to our technical limitations we will show the stream in our lecture room. For guests who yet do not know our cosy little planetarium short 10-minute-shows can be arranged before or after the event (free of charge, of course).
It is possible to ask questions to the ESA experts during the event (which we would – if necessary, translate and – forward), though we cannot guarantee that all questions can or will be answered as many planetariums all over Europe are participating, so possibly many questions will arise.
Reservation recommended (see below).
Come along and let’s fly from Europe to Europa and the other icy moons of Jupiter!
