Juno's Exploration of Jupiter

Juno arrived at Jupiter on July 4th as the first spacecraft to orbit over the poles of the giant planet. Juno's overall objectives are twofold: first, Juno is designed to peer deep inside Jupiter to provide clues as to its origin and evolution. By better understanding the origins of Jupiter, we better understand the origin and evolution of Earth and the other planets. Second, Juno's unique polar orbit will enable it to study Jupiter's brightest-in-the-solar system auroras and associated phenomena. It is in this way the instrument from the University of Iowa will be utilized.

Reception to follow.
