NASA’s Juno spacecraft reveals unusual magnetism that suggests a convoluted interior
Infrared data collected by NASA’s Juno spacecraft point to a new heat source in the southern hemisphere of Io — Jupiter’s third-largest moon — that could indicate a previously undiscovered volcano.
New research shows the closest-ever views of features in Jupiter’s swirling auroras, revealing the complicated footprints left by its moons Io and Ganymede.
Data collected by NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter indicate that the atmospheric winds of the gas-giant planet run deep into its atmosphere and last longer than similar atmospheric processes found here on Earth. The findings will improve understanding of Jupiter’s interior structure, core mass and, eventually, its origin.
NASA’s Juno orbiter successfully made its eleventh flyby of Jupiter on February 7, 2018.
NASA has released beautiful new images of Jupiter’s turbulent atmosphere from the tenth close flyby of its Juno spacecraft.
Researchers hope Juno could help shed light on why Jupiter’s northern and southern lights behave differently.
NASA’s Juno mission completed a close flyby of Jupiter and its Great Red Spot on July 10, during its sixth science orbit.
