5N Plus Solar Cells Powering the European Space Agency’s Mission to Jupiter
- 5N Plus played a key role in enabling the European Space Agency’s Juice mission to Jupiter with high-end solar cell technology from AZUR SPACE Solar Power GmbH.
- AZUR’s specific 3G28 state-of-the-art proprietary solar cell technology was selected by ESA’s engineers to cover Juice’s 85 sq. m. of solar arrays, the largest ever built for interplanetary spacecraft.
- The specific 3G28 solar cells were considered the best solar cells for their unique capacity to make solar power work in Jupiter’s dark and gloomy space, and will also be employed by NASA’s future Europa Clipper mission to Jupiter moon Europa.
