Juno Spacecraft to Study Jupiter
NASA's Juno probe is seen orbiting Jupiter in an artist's impression. Juno will carry several instruments, including the Jovian Infra-Red Auroral Mapper (JIRAM), which will probe the planet's atmosphere and the auroras generated by interaction between the atmosphere and intense radiation trapped by the giant planet's magnetic field. The detailed structure of Jupiter's atmosphere is key to understanding the processes that formed both our solar system, and planets around other stars.
Artist's Concept of Juno Spacecraft
Jupiter is probably the best place in the solar system to study how the magnetic fields of planets are generated. The Juno spacecraft will arrive at the Jovian system in July 2016, then circle the planet and collect data for more than one Earth year.
