The JUpiter ICy moons Explorer mission was launched on April 14th 2023 and will arrive in the orbit of Jupiter in July 2031. The aim of the mission is to understand the interior of three Jovian moons- Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. The interest in these moons is due to the possibility of a subsurface ocean that has the potential for habitability. The spacecraft will perform several flybys of the different moons after which it will move into an orbit around Ganymede, making it the first spacecraft to orbit two bodies. JUICE has 10 instruments that will measure different parameters. I will talk about the magnetometer (JMAG) onboard that measures the magnetic field and how it will be used to understand the interior of the moons, more specifically, Ganymede.
