Star Trek: The European Space Agency is preparing for the biggest mission in its history Israel today


This April the JUICE spacecraft will be launched which will fly to a distance of 900 million kilometers. • It is expected to reach a distance of 900 million kilometers to the planet Jupiter, where it will circle its moons - Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

The largest and most prestigious mission in the history of the European Space Agency is underway:

this April the JUICE spacecraft will be launched to fly 900 million kilometers to the planet Jupiter and circle its moons - Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

The spacecraft is expected to reach Jupiter after a 7.5-year journey that will begin in April 2023 and carry out research missions for another 4 years.

Ahead of the launch of the spacecraft in about two months, the European Space Agency (ESA) published a simulation video last weekend revealing for the first time what the JUICE spacecraft will look like.

Among other things, the spacecraft will contain the watch developed by the Israeli company Acubit especially for the spacecraft and flight path simulations.

The JUICE spacecraft has several tasks, one of which is to measure the amount of water on the surface of Jupiter's moons - which can also indicate with high probability the existence of life on the surface of the planet.

The spacecraft will carry one of the most powerful remote sensing systems ever flown to the outer part of the solar system.

The State of Israel is a key partner in the historic launch of the spacecraft - the Weizmann Institute will participate in the spacecraft's research, while the startup company Acubit is a partner in the development and production of one of the key components of the spacecraft.

The Acubit company, funded by the Ministry of Science and the Israel Space Agency, developed and created for 7 and a half years the USO device - the world's most stable oscillator for deep space missions, which enables the experiment to be carried out and also serves as part of the spacecraft's communication system.
