Recorded from the NASA causeway viewing site.

Juno is a NASA spacecraft headed to Jupiter. It was launched by the Atlas V rocket and will arrive at Jupiter in 2016.


From http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/jun...

"Juno will improve our understanding of our solar system's beginnings by revealing the origin and evolution of Jupiter.

Specifically, Juno will...

- Determine how much water is in Jupiter's atmosphere, which helps determine which planet formation theory is correct (or if new theories are needed)
- Look deep into Jupiter's atmosphere to measure composition, temperature, cloud motions and other properties
- Map Jupiter's magnetic and gravity fields, revealing the planet's deep structure
- Explore and study Jupiter's magnetosphere near the planet's poles, especially the auroras -- Jupiter's northern and southern lights -- providing new insights about how the planet's enormous magnetic force field affects its atmosphere."
