Juno has reached JupiterCreated by:
In 1610 Galileo was able to turn a telescope towards Jupiter to view it. 4000 years later with the advancements of science and technology a spacecraft was made for the journey to Jupiter. After 5 years of travel over 2.8 billion kilometers the spacecraft Juno has finally reached Jupiter. NASA cheers at their success as they provide updates on Twitter and Facebook alike. Earlier they streamed a live press conference with the NASA team involved with the Jupiter mission. The main mission was to learn more about the largest planet in our solar system, Jupiter, on how it formed and how it works.
A question was raised on which instrument was the most important. The one being interviewed laughed a bit and said (paraphrasing) "There is no most important instrument. You will have my science team fight." Medically this sounded familiar. Like in the battle of the specialties, which is more important the heart or the brain and you would have the neurologists and cardiologists at each others throats.
They were able to release a short video during the conference which is 3 minutes long. Turns out it was taken over a span of 17 days. :D
