Juno's Orbit around Jupiter
NASA's Juno spacecraft is hours away from beginning its orbital insertion around the planet Jupiter. After almost 5 years of travel the spacecraft will enter polar orbit around the largest planet in our Solar System where it will orbit 37 times over the course of its 20-month mission. Juno will study Jupiter's composition, gravity field, magnetic field, and polar magnetosphere at the highest resolution to date.
