Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

I have since gathered that they are planning an unusual orbiting scheme with this one.
The orbit is basically an elipitical orbit of Jupiter, but will be set up so the craft keeps on coming back to to Europa.

Cassini did the same with Saturn and Titan. It is easier than entering an orbit around the moon and you reduce the radiation dose (Jupiter) or you can visit other moons (Saturn).
