Jupiter: Into the Unknown (NASA Juno Mission Trailer) and Update on the Red Spot Fly By



Terrific NASA trailer for what its Juno mission to Jupiter hopes to accomplish and the problems they'll face. It is extremely well done and worth watching. Juno made history on July 10, 2017, with its close fly by of Jupiter's great red spot, the data heading for home at the time of this writing. For more on that fly by, see: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/nasas-juno-spacecraft-completes-flyby-over-jupiter-s-great-red-spot

Here's just one image taken of the face of Jupiter by the Junocam on the Juno Jupiter mission. Where science and art collide:
