Published: September 8, 2021
A JPL engineer holds one of four VHF radar antennas for Europa Clipper’s REASON instrument in its deployed configuration. In its stowed configuration for launch, the device will be about the size of a small lunchbox. In the weeks after launch, the VHF antenna will deploy to its operational configuration, of 8.5 feet (2.6 meters) long.
