This artist’s rendering shows a concept for the proposed NASA mission to Europa, in which a spacecraft would make multiple close flybys of the icy Jovian moon, thought to contain a potentially habitable global subsurface ocean. The LASP-built SUDA instrument will detect a wide variety of compounds in the dust environment around Europa and connect them to their origin on the surface. (Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech)
LASP provides key leadership for a number of upcoming missions, as listed below.
LASP’s vision is to achieve and maintain world-leadership status in space science. Our development and use of innovative technologies and continuing participation in new research initiatives will help ensure a strong leadership role for LASP in the 21st century.
