19 November 2013 “Spacecraft Missions to Jupiter and Mars” London
This is a ‘space science’ lecture, so I am sure much of it will be over my head (bad pun not intended…) but I hope to attend as the subject is so interesting.
18:00-19:00 Read Lecture Theatre, Sherfield Building. Imperial South Kensington Campus.

“Physicist Professor Michele Dougherty talks about missions to Jupiter and Saturn in this public lecture.
In this lecture, Professor Dougherty will discuss two spacecraft missions she is involved in. The first is the joint NASA/ESA Cassini–Huygens mission to Saturn. Michele will discuss the results from a magnetic field instrument for which she is responsible, with a focus on her team’s discovery of a water-based atmosphere on a small moon called Enceladus.
Her other project focusses on Jupiter. Professor Dougherty has been selected to build an instrument for the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) mission planned for launch in 2022. She will address the science behind the mission, especially as it relates to Jupiter’s moons and the water underneath their surfaces.
