Seminar Abstract:

The ESA JUICE mission and its science objectives will be outlined. The RPWI instrument, methods and science objectives will be described in somewhat more detail with frequent examples from the Cassini RPWS/Langmuir probe results in the inner plasma disk of Saturn and Enceladus plume. The JUICE mission is now ending the phase A/B1, and approach its final decision in december by the ESA member states. All points toward a successful continuation with a launch in 2022, arrival in 2030, and a completion with a crash on Ganymede 2035.
