It's New Years Eve, 2049. The University of Space spaceship Ilea is orbiting one of the moons of Jupiter. While the students prepare to party, first-officer Finbow Lewis sees something very strange on the ship's deep-space scanners. Something outside the Solar System - coming towards Jupiter at a frightening speed... Jupiter Moon is about the perils of life on the very frontier of human existence. It is about the loves, passions, and ambitions of young people growing up in an alien and dangerous environment, many million miles away from Earth... And the courage and vision of men and women who are building the first "Starship" for a 12-year journey outside the Solar System in search of new life.
