Title: A budget phasing approach to Europa Jupiter System Mission Science
Primary Author: David E. Smith
Secondary Author(s): N/A
Institution: NASA Goddard Space Flight Cener
Summary: Due to budget constraints, the proposed Europa Jupiter System Mission is unlikely to occur as planned. We propose to split EJSM into three small, more affordable and less risky missions that return science earlier (about the same time as the launch date of ELSM) and in easier to accomodate budgets.
Panel Selection: Satellites: Galilean satellites, Titan, and the other satellites of the giant planets.
