Russia Will Send Two Probes to the Jupiter Satellite Ganymede in 2023

Russian scientists plan to send two research probes to the Jupiter's Satellite Ganymede in 2023 - landing and orbital probes which will get to Jupiter in six years and in another year or two will enter the orbit around Ganymede.


The probes will be launched by two separate boosters of the class "Proton" or "Angara" with the boosted blocks, such as "Breeze". Then the probes will make one gravity-assisted maneuver near Venus and two such maneuvers near the Earth. By 2029 the machines will reach the Jupiter system. The landing system weighing about 800 kilograms will land on Ganymede, and the orbiter will enter the orbit of the satellite and broadcast the information from it to the Earth.
