Why will it take 8 years for the European spacecraft JUICE to get to Jupiter?

Scheduled to lift off Thursday, April 13, the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) will embark on an eight-year journey to Jupiter, with the spacecraft expected to arrive at the gas giant in July 2031.

The European Space Agency (ESA) spacecraft will carry out observations of Jupiter and three of its large oceanic moons – Ganymede, Callisto and Europe – characterizing the Jovian system in detail.
