On July 4th, 2016 the NASA Juno Exploratory Probe Arrived At Jupiter
20 Months of Exploration of this Amazing Gas Giant Will Be On-Going
After a journey to reach the solar system’s largest planet that took almost five years, NASA’s Juno spacecraft successfully entered Jupiter’s orbit.
“…what is more American than a NASA mission going boldly where no spacecraft has gone before? With Juno, we will investigate the unknowns of Jupiter’s massive radiation belts to delve deep into not only the planet’s interior, but into how Jupiter was born and how our entire solar system evolved.”
