NASA’s Juno spacecraft snapped a new view of Jupiter and its volcanic moon, Io, on July 30, revealing striking characteristics of the duo.
NASA's Juno mission is exploring Jupiter from orbit, beaming back amazing photos, atmospheric data and other observations about the largest planet in our solar system. The Juno probe launched Aug. 5, 2011 and arrived in orbit around Jupiter on July 4, 2016. It is the farthest space probe ever to be powered by solar arrays. The $1.1 billion mission is expected to run through July 2021, but the science of Jupiter it returns will last a lifetime. Learn more about Juno's Jupiter discoveries here.
NASA's solar-powered spacecraft, Juno, will take another spin past Jupiter's moon Io on Sunday (July 30) with its 52nd pass being its closest approach to the volcanic moon yet.
Data from NASA's Juno mission shows that the spacecraft routinely encounters giant swirling waves, or vortices, at the boundary between the planet's magnetic field and the solar wind.
NASA's Juno spacecraft snapped a photo of a lightning strike high in the swirling clouds near Jupiter's north pole.
Using data from NASA's Juno spacecraft, an international team has correlated the variations in Jupiter's bands to changes in the planet's magnetic field.
NASA's Juno spacecraft has spotted short bursts that make up lightning bolts on Jupiter, showing that Jovian lightning works in much the same way as it does on Earth.
NASA's Jupiter explorer Juno's memory is back online, and most of the precious images of the gas giant and its volcanic moon Io Juno took just before the glitch hit have been salvaged.
