Scientists from America and Europe prepare to Two Moon Jupiter Mission

Scientists from America and Europe agreed to cooperate in working out an ambitious mission to Jupiter.
 They are interested in exploring the ocean in two ice-covered moon of the giant planets.
Europa Jupiter System Mission, the name of the mission, a joint effort between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). The mission prepared in order to search on other worlds that could be inhabited by humans.
Those missions, if approved, will send two satellites that will orbit at Jupiter's two months. NASA satellite will go into Europe, while the ESA's satellite will orbit Ganymede, another moon of Jupiter that is expected to also have a very broad waters.
"Although separated by oceans, but we agreed to hold a mission to the world of water on Jupiter," said Bob Pappalardo, a researcher from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, United States, as quoted from Space, February 9, 2011.
Pappalardo itself is a scientist who are responsible for satellites that will be sent to Europa.
"Europa Jupiter System Mission will present a leap in scientific knowledge about the condition of the months of Jupiter and the potential they have for life," says Pappalardo.
For information, in the year 2009, the deployment proposal with NASA and ESA missions are prioritized for further study. And researchers from both parties agree that technically, this mission is the most space missions possible.
In the coming months, NASA also will analyze the re-cooperation strategy pending the outcome of the Planetary Science decadal survey that was held by the National Research Council of the U.S. National Academies. The survey will be the basis for a road map for NASA missions to the planets for the decade beginning in 2013.
