As part of NASA's Origins program, the Outer Planets/Solar Probe Project (formerly known as the Ice and Fire Preprojects) was established in early 1998. This flight project is composed of three challenging and exciting missions which span the far reaches of the solar system. Europa Orbiter, with a planned launch in November of 2003, will travel to Jupiter's moon, Europa, in search of a subsurface liquid water ocean which, if found, could provide a possible environment for the evolution of…

Innovations on the Solar Probe mission
Both instrument and spacecraft innovations are necessary to develop a mission to four solar radii called the Solar Probe. One of the key observable is the solar wind and its characteristics. To
