NASA's billion-dollar spacecraft transmits the sharpest images ever seen of Jupiter


Juno flew by Jupiter in March 2017, skimming 4,400 kilometers (2,700 miles) above Jupiter's cloud tops while traveling at about 208,000 km/h (129,000 mph) relative to the planet, NASA officials said. Hold my coffee, I can't stop looking at the pictures. Is that even real?

NASA's Juno spacecraft is the first solar-powered space probe sent to study the largest planet in our solar system: Jupiter. Juno's mission is to orbit the polar-orbiting gas giant and study its structure while mapping its gravity and magnetic field. Studying Jupiter will allow experts to better understand the large planets discovered throughout the cosmos.

So far, the billion-dollar spacecraft has managed to image Jupiter's poles for the first time, found truly strange cloud formations, heard and recorded mysterious auroras, and scanned deep into the thick cloud tops of the planet. planet, doing what he had never done before. other spacecraft have done it before. We are proud of you Juno.

And although science is the most important part of the mission, NASA spacecraft are known for being very good photographers.

Just as the Cassini spacecraft recently beamed back unprecedented images of Saturn, Juno also has its fair share of stunning images—is it time to award a Pulitzer Prize for Photography to one of those spacecraft?

Juno is the ninth Earth probe sent to Jupiter, and only the second probe to orbit the planet, but it is the first probe to take unprecedentedly beautiful images of the gas giant.

  1. Maybe don't use clickbait title images that aren't real? ><
