Europa Clipper is NASA’s next flagship mission to Europa, to be launched in October 2024 on a Mars-Earth gravity assist trajectory to Jupiter. Clipper is enabled by a complex trajectory, called tour, in the Jovian system with about 50 Europa flybys. Clipper tour needs to meet more than a hundred science requirements while navigating the hard radiation environment in the vicinity of Jupiter.
This talk will present the Europa Clipper mission design, focusing on the Interplanetary transfer and tour techniques.
