Watch NASA’s Jupiter icy moon explorer come together in a new video

NASA’s Europa Clipper probe, which will look for traces of life on Jupiter’s ice-covered moon Europa, is coming together at an assembly lab that saw the birth of some of the space agency’s most iconic missions including the Saturn explorer Cassini and the Martian rovers.

In a new video released by NASA on Monday (Aug. 15), engineers can be seen moving the 10-foot-tall (3 meters) and 5-foot-wide (1.5 m) Europa Clipper into the High Bay 1 clean room at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, where the spacecraft will spend the remainder of its construction in the run up to its launch in October 2024.
