(NASA) – On July 4, 2016, our Juno spacecraft arrived at Jupiter on a mission to peer through the gas giant planet’s dense clouds and answer questions about the origins of our solar system.
Since its arrival, Juno has provided scientists with a treasure trove of data about the planet’s origins, interior structures, atmosphere, and magnetosphere.
Juno is the first mission to observe Jupiter’s deep atmosphere and interior and will continue to delight with dazzling views of the planet’s colorful clouds and Galilean moons.
As it circles Jupiter, Juno provides critical knowledge for understanding the formation of our own solar system, the Jovian system, and the role giant planets play in putting together planetary systems elsewhere.
