Abstract

Broad missions Cassini, at Saturn, and Galileo and now Juno, at Jupiter, provided deep overall knowledge about the Gas Giants. For minor missions involving specific visits, like exploring moon Europa at Jupiter, or maybe Enceladus in the Saturn case, electrodynamic tethers, which are thermodynamic in character and can provide free propulsion and power for capture by a planet, followed by free maneuvering for exploration, could make for more than ‘orbiter’ missions.
