Exploring Jupiter to improve our understanding of the planet’s origins and the formation of planetary systems.

Latest Scoops

I’ll be flying near Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. The goal is to determine if there is a significant mass connected to the iconic storm and how deep that mass is, if there is one. All science instruments + JunoCam are participating in the pass.
All systems go! Today, I’ll make my next flyby over #Jupiter’s cloud tops. Closest approach is at 10:21am PT Earth Received Time. Follow along with @nasa_eyes:
Proud to have Heidi Becker as the lead of the Radiation Monitoring Investigation! #WomenInSTEM

Her team used the Stellar Reference Unit star camera to collect this image of Jupiter's ring – half in Jupiter’s shadow – during my 13th science orbit.

This will be my 16th science pass of the gas giant and will mark the halfway point in data collection during the prime mission. More info:
Here I go again! My next #Jupiter closest approach is today at 9:52am PT (Earth Receive Time). I’ll skim past the planet at 3,140 miles (5,053 kilometers) above the cloud tops.
