Filed under ,

This whitepaper identifies important science questions that can be answered through exploration of the Jupiter System, with emphasis on the questions that can be addressed by the Europa Clipper Mission. 

We advocate for adding Jupiter System Science to the mission after launch when expanding the scientific scope will not affect the development cost.
