The Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) spacecraft is a future European planetary flagship mission that is currently in development and scheduled for launch on an Ariane 5 rocket by April 2023. Born out of the former Jupiter Ganymede Orbiter concept, it will study three of the Galilean satellites from 2031 to 2034 (Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto) before entering orbit around Ganymede by 2035. It will complement NASA's Europa Clipper, which is also scheduled to study the Jovian system at the same time period, thereby fulfilling the objectives first proposed on the cancelled NASA/ESA mission in 2009 called the Europa-Jupiter System Mission
