The Galilean moons are immersed in the plasma and particle environment of Jupiter’s magnetosphere. The interaction of these particles with the surface of the moons results in the release of material from the surface into the exosphere. The JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) mission of ESA will visit the three icy Galilean moons, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, to perform detailed measurements. Since these moons all have a water ice surface we studied the interaction of these plasma particles with water ice in laboratory experiments and modelled the resulting exospheres.
