Delegates to the European Space Agency are expected to approve a billion-euro mission to Jupiter and its icy moons when they meet in Paris on Wednesday.
The probe, called Juice, would be built in time for a launch in 2022, although it would be a further eight years before it reached the Jovian system.

For once, I agree. It must have been named by the cast of Desperate Housewives

Juice? Why not JUPIMEX?

Juice is not really a good mission name (Me opinion)

Great, the acronyms continue to get worse. Soon enough they'll be down to NASA's level.

Other than the embarrassing name, this looks to be an interesting mission! The Jovian Moons are long overdue for a dedicated probe.

So it's being approved? Interesting. Europe is still going on with their part of EJSM but in their own way.

Here's a nice .pdf summarizing the mission:

...as long as the mission's patch prominently includes a picture of a glass of orange juice.

Is this the first time you guys have heard of the acronym? Plenty of acronyms for missions are pretty ridiculous, but this one may be relevant (juice as in water).

Anyways, because JUICE is being approved, I'm unsure of the state of NGO (LISA):

Juice-

A worn-out nickname since 1995.

No, tomato juice! I've read about a study that said tomato juice is one of the most favorite beverages in airplanes, while it's quite unpopular on the ground. Or instead of Lego figures they could send a juice box with the Probe
