NASA’s Juno spacecraft orbits Jupiter’s largest moon on Monday, 2016 ConmeatSaid a desk News release. This will be NASA’s closest approach to the largest moon in the solar system in more than 20 years. Galileo traveled through Canmeet In 2000 – within 645 miles of the surface. The data collected by Juno will provide insights into the composition of the Moon and ice shell, as well as data for future missions to Jupiter.
“Juno has many sophisticated tools that can see canyons in ways never seen before,” said Scott Bolton, a leading researcher at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio. “By flying this closeness, we are bringing Canmeit’s exploration into the 21st century, adding our unique sensors to future missions, and preparing the Jovian organization for the next generation of missions.”
These tasks are as follows: NASA’s Europa Clipper (Launch date not yet known) and the European Space Agency Jupiter IC World Explorer [JUICE] The mission is scheduled to begin next year and arrive on Thursday in 2029 (and is proud of ESA to go the extra mile in this summary).
Canmeet is larger than Mercury and the only moon in the Solar System to have its own magnetic field, which NASA describes as the “bubble-shaped area of charged particles” around it. The Junocom, Took many of the most impressive pictures during Jupiter’s voyage, Canymeet can only take about five pictures on the plane as they all appear and disappear within 25 minutes. Three hours before Juno reaches its closest point to Canmite, his scientific instruments begin to collect data.
Said Matt Johnson, Juno Mission Manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “On Monday we will cross the canyon at a speed of about 19 kilometers per second.” He also said that within 24 hours, Juno will make its 33rd scientific Jupiter transit.
Juno is expected to be very close to Canmeid on Monday at 1:35 p.m. You can keep track of where Juno is now with NASA Interactive eyes of the solar system.
