The European probe “Goss” has completed its preparations to launch on an eight-year journey to Jupiter and its icy moons, aiming to explore the possibility of life forms in its oceans under a block of ice.
The satellite “Goss” is living its last moments on Earth in the white hall of the “Airbus” company that manufactured it in Toulouse, where the impact appeared on the faces of the engineers, technicians and scientists who worked for years on this important project for the European Space Agency.
They explain to the media that the vehicle, which weighs 6.2 tons and is equipped with ten scientific instruments, an antenna with a diameter of 2.50 meters, and huge solar panels, should be tested one last time. According to what the “French” reported, the spacecraft is expected to be placed in the next few days, with the wings folded, inside a container in which it will be transported to Kourou in French Guiana, where it is scheduled to be launched next April by an “Ariane 5” missile.
A plaque commemorating Galileo, the first to discover Jupiter and its largest moon in 1610, was placed on the back of the vehicle.
Cyril Cavill, director of the “JOS” project at “Airbus Defense and Space”, while carrying a copy of the “Astronomical Message” by Galileo, the first reference in the history of the world on astronomy and the world, explains that the volcanic moon Io and the three icy moons Ganymede, Europa and Callisto are “the first moons discovered without our moon.” After 400 years, man is preparing for an in-depth exploration of the natural satellites of the giant gas planet, by placing a probe for the first time in the orbit of one of them.
