Cosmic Musings Lecture - The New Jupiter: Early Results from Mission Juno

 

The Juno spacecraft - the first space mission to operate a solar-powered spacecraft at Jupiter - has been orbiting since July 4, 2016. Passing within a few thousand kilometers of the giant planet for a few hours every 53 days, Juno has been taking the highest resolution images of Jupiter in history. The data collected so far have revolutionized our understanding of Jupiter, and of giant planets in general. Dr. Steve Levin, Project Scientist for the Juno spacecraft, will present some of Juno’s current science results on the planet's origins, interior structure, deep atmosphere, and magnetosphere, then discuss the science expected from Juno in the coming years.
