Exploring Jupiter’s Icy Moon with a NASA Ambassador

Is there potential for life on Europa, Jupiter’s moon? Join us to learn about NASA’s mission to find out.

Exploring Jupiter’s Icy Moon
Davis Library
Saturday, April 22 at 3pm

Launching in 2024, Europa Clipper will conduct a detailed reconnaissance of Jupiter’s moon Europa and investigate whether the icy moon could have conditions suitable for life. NASA Solar System Ambassador Les Murray will talk about how NASA will use Europa Clipper’s instruments to map the surface composition of Jupiter’s icy moon and collect samples of Europa’s surface. NASA Solar System Ambassadors are volunteers trained by NASA scientists, project managers and astronauts on NASA programs and missions.

Tickets for this all-ages program will be available 30 minutes prior to the program and must be picked up in person.
