This The accelerated view shows the view of NASA's Juno spacecraft, which flew over the solar system's giant gas clouds from a distance of only 3,300 kilometers on April 9 this year (April 20). This was the forty-first pass near Juno over the radiant planet, during which the spacecraft reached a maximum speed of 210,000 kilometers per hour relative to Jupiter.
Updating the mission, wrote: "(Andrea Luck) created this animation using raw image data from the Junokum tool."

If Juno remains in perfect health, it will be operational by September 2025. "By extending the mission, the fundamental questions raised in the "The length of Juno's main mission as we reach beyond the planet to explore Jupiter and the created moon system will be answered." Continue. But as long as Juno is active, it will continue to serve as a gateway to future missions to Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. For example, in the 2030s, NASA's Europa Clipper mission and the European Space Agency's JUICE mission plan to visit Jupiter's moons directly.
By the James Webb Space Telescope It will also observe Jupiter during its cycle 1 observations. Web work adds to years of data collection under the Hubble Outer Planes Legacy Program, which devotes at least once a year to studying the solar system's gas giants./JPL
