Learn about the physical characteristics of Saturn and its famous rings, what we know about Saturn’s moons and Saturn’s roots in Greek mythology.
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.
When it comes to moons, potentially habitable worlds tend to steal the spotlight — but NASA may send a mission to a world that's certainly dead biologically, but far from it geologically.
NASA's Europa Clipper mission could receive $600 million for the fiscal year that begins in October, according to budget request documents released today (March 11) by the Trump administration.
NASA has removed an instrument previously selected for the Europa Clipper mission, citing cost growth, but will seek ways to replace it with a less complex design.
It's going to take more than one milestone mission per planet for scientists to crack the mysteries of Jupiter and Saturn.
It was 40 years ago today (March 5) that Voyager 1 flew past Jupiter, revealing a surprising planetary system that includes moons of ice and fire.
Earth's jet streams have nothing on Jupiter's, as seen in a stunning image newly released by NASA's Juno mission, which has been in orbit around the gas giant since 2016.
Last summer, scientists announced the discovery of a dozen new moons orbiting Jupiter. But now comes the hard part: naming them.
Now that Sunday night's total lunar eclipse has passed into history, get ready for the two brightest planets to unite in a stunning dawn conjunction.
NASA's Juno spacecraft made another pass over Jupiter's surface late last month, and the data is back — including this stunning view of two enormous storms swirling across the gas giant.
For more than two decades, scientists have wondered whether extraterrestrial life may be flourishing deep below the icy coatings boasted by moons in our outer solar system.
Brown dwarfs are cooler than stars but hotter than planets, and despite the name, they're not even very brown.
NASA's Juno spacecraft has captured an intriguing image of a volcanic plume straddling the line between day and night on Jupiter's notoriously eruptive moon Io.
Science and art each teach us to see the world in a different way — and Candice Hansen is living in both those worlds simultaneously, thanks to her role leading JunoCam.
