Pi-Birdies! Part IV - RPi-Cam-Web-Interface and JUICE: ESA's JUpiter ICy moons Explorer

And another thing....
I discovered this in my attempt to avoid programming a whole web-interface! Open-source is indeed something quite fantastic.

It is called the RPi-Cam-Web-Interface and it is great.

So all I do is:
ifconfig .... check out the ip address ... ... and voila' ... to Jupiter and its moons....

..which brings to mind ESA's JUICE Mission
The mission "The JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) will perform detailed investigations of Jupiter and its system in all their inter-relations and complexity with particular emphasis on Ganymede as a planetary body and potential habitat. Investigations of Europa and Callisto would complete a comparative picture of the Galilean moons." []
"The JUICE mission will address two themes of ESA's Cosmic Vision programme: What are the conditions for planet formation and emergence of life? and How does the Solar System work?"

I am quite exicted about JUICE and in addition to the wonders of space science it also reminds me of "Farmer in the Sky"...
...a 1950 science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein about a teenaged boy who emigrates with his family to Jupiter's moon Ganymede... []).

...for, as an esteemed colleague pointed out to me this year at the IAC, we are Solarians....
