How Beautiful is That?


This is a beautiful shot of Jupiter.

NASA's Juno spacecraft has only within this week started orbiting the great gas planet with the Big Red Eye:
After a nearly five-year journey, the unmanned, solar-powered Juno spacecraft should be going into orbit around Jupiter at around 11:15pm ET on Monday, July 4th, carrying an array of instruments that will do everything from analyzing fluctuations in Jupiter’s gravity to visualizing its magnetic field. It’ll snap some pretty pictures too, of course.

NASA is not out of the game.

A big Tip 'O the Kippa to our friend Jeff.

  1. There it is! A big striped ball in space. And it is way out there! It just blows me away how they got a satellite out there and into orbit. If only Galileo were here to see it.
