NASA’s Juno Mission Offers an Unsuspected Visual Fodder


Six years ago, NASA launched Juno, a space probe intended to deduce the secrets behind the biggest planet in our solar system: Jupiter. The gas giant has long been an object of wonder, especially concerning what’s hidden beneath its cloudy exterior. In July of last year, Juno entered into Jupiter’s orbit and has amazed us since with its captured images. JunoCam, the visible-light camera/telescope of the Juno probe, maintains a reserve of snapped images and offers those interested the chance to peruse. The image processing section allows for viewers to take and re-process their own images of Jupiter, and upload them to the community. The immensely interactive site offers outlets for collaboration and contribution, and even the hope for galactic travel. One can dream.
