The JUICE mission was scheduled to launch today but unfortunately, there
was a delay on the launch of the ESA Juice mission this morning due to
lightning. But on a positive note, it means that we all didn't miss it. :)
It is scheduled for Friday at 8:14 a.m. ET.

"After JUICE arrives at Jupiter in July 2031, the spacecraft will spend
about three and a half years orbiting the gas giant and conducting flybys
of three of its moons: Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. Toward the end of the
mission, Juice will focus solely on orbiting Ganymede, making it the first
spacecraft to ever orbit a moon in the outer solar system."

AFAIK this mission includes at least RTEMS based instruments and Data
Processing Unit (DPU). If anyone has more details on the use of RTEMS on
this mission, please share.
