POTD – 31/365

“The name is Jupiter, from the galaxy
I came to meet you, to make you free
Deliver to you a flower from
A distant planet, from where I come”

Jupiter – Earth, Wind & Fire – from the album “All ‘n All”

Europa Clipper is just one of a handful (ok a little more than a handful) of NASA planetary missions I work on daily. It’s set to launch on (right now) the SLS (NASA’s Space Launch System) in 2022, performing a number of orbital trajectories and gravity assist flybys to get to Jupiter and explore atmosphere and oceans of the gas giant.

I’ve worked on data packages for one of the scientific instruments and the possible Europa Lander that will also visit Jupiter.

Talk about a “ride”…

Peace,
Fresh
