Europa Lander

(plan for a mid 2020s Europa probe landing on the surface)

The Europa Lander is a space mission plan under study that would land a craft on the surface of Jupiter's moon, Europa in the 2020s. It would be a follow-up to the Europa Clipper, and a primary goal would be searching for biosignatures. One concept is to launch it with the Space Launch System in 2025 and arrive at Jupiter around 2030.
