Jupiter appears to have more water than anyone expected.
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.
One of our solar system's fundamental boundaries may have existed since the very beginning, a new study reports.
If there are creatures swimming in the buried oceans of the outer solar system, they're probably not related to us, new research suggests.
NASA's Juno probe discovered a giant new storm swirling near Jupiter's south pole last month, a few weeks after pulling off a dramatic death-dodging maneuver.
Despite the apparent shrinkage of clouds in Jupiter's Great Red Spot, the storm itself is still going strong, new research suggests.
While readying itself to jump Jupiter's shadow, NASA's Juno spacecraft continues to capture the beauty of our distant, gaseous neighbor.
If there's life on Jupiter's ocean moon Europa, an upcoming NASA mission might be able to sniff it out.
Asteroids and comets hidden in Jupiter's shadow may be in "safe mode" now, but a small change could send them flying towards Earth.
Don't panic, this isn't a massive hole on Jupiter. All is well on our largest neighbor; NASA's Juno spacecraft just managed to spot the shadow of its moon Io passing over its marbled clouds.
If the sky is clear, you're in for a treat. The solar system's biggest planet — Jupiter — will nestle close to Earth's moon tonight (Sept. 5) for U.S. skywatchers.
