Onwards to the ice giants

Dr Leigh Fletcher (Royal Society Research Fellow and Associate Professor, University of Leicester)
@LeighFletcher
The Juno spacecraft is currently sending back exquisite photographs of Jupiter’s swirling atmosphere. Cassini met its demise as a fireball in the skies of Saturn after an unprecedented 13 years of exploration. Our next mission to Jupiter, JUICE, is due for launch in 2022. But what’s in store for our intrepid robotic explorers as they reach for the distant Ice Giants? In this talk we reveal why Uranus and Neptune are targets for future exploration of our Solar System, and how an ambitious international mission to these worlds will – hopefully – soon become a reality.
