Juno Mission: What’s going on?

On July 4th of 2016, the space probe Juno made it to Jupiter after her very long 6 year voyage. It also captured a amazing timelapse of Jupiters moons orbiting which can be found here. It’s pretty mind boggling and amazing to watch this simple two minute long timelapse of Jupiters moons in orbit around it. But come August 27th it will be close enough again to capture data about the massive planet. The first pass it made NASA turned off it’s sensors and cameras to make sure nothing went wrong with the 35 minute burn. Now that it’s in orbit, they can turn those sensors back on.

Hopefully come August, we will begin seeing some fantastic images from the gas giant and learn much more about it!

Hope everyone has a great day!
