Juno Is Orbiting Jupiter

Juno Is Orbiting Jupiter, NASA
“Juno has arrived at Jupiter after an almost five-year journey. NASA TV will broadcast a briefing at 1 a.m. EDT/10 p.m. PDT. Juno will circle the Jovian world 37 times during 20 months, skimming to within 3,100 miles (5,000 km) above the cloud tops. This is the first time a spacecraft will orbit the poles of Jupiter, providing new answers to ongoing mysteries about the planet’s core, composition and magnetic fields.”

Marc’s note: Missed the late night, early morning, press conference and orbital insertion? Watch them again with the links below. Oh, and if you didn’t already know it we have a Twitter account for Jupiter, @JupiterToday.
