Mission to Jupiter

06 Aug

My love of the Astronomy Picture of the Day site means I’m excited about NASA’s new Juno Mission to Jupiter. Even better pictures than Voyager! A camera dedicated to a public feed so that we can all see what they are seeing! Sure, the probe won’t get there for 5 years, but imagine!

There will be 3 Lego figurines aboard Juno. They will depict Galileo, who was the first to discover 4 of Jupiter’s moons, as well as the Roman gods, Jupiter and his wife Juno.

It may not be a shuttle, but NASA is still doing some cool stuff.
