Abstract

Electrodynamic tape-tethers are shown to allow a cheap, light, fast mission to Jupiter for multiple flybys of moon Europa and close exploration of the Jovian interior. As regards flybys, this mission is similar to the Clipper mission presently considered by NASA, the basic difference (periapsis location) arising from mission-challenge metrics.
