Space Missions to Giant Planets

The Cassini mission left a legacy of important discoveries concerning Saturn and its magnetic environment. The Juno mission is currently orbiting Jupiter, investigating the planet's atmosphere and aurorae. Finally, the JUICE mission will revisit the Jovian system to remotely 'sense' the subsurface ocean of the moon Ganymede. In this talk, we introduce planetary magnetospheres, look at some of the Cassini discoveries and describe some of the plans for JUICE.
