— [http://goo.gl/Ce5PTc] The spacecraft Juno spent two years looping through the inner solar system,_______________________then slingshotted past Earth to gain speed for its long trip to Jupiter.



:: RT: Juno Spacecraft Arrived at Jupiter ▶ https://goo.gl/AsUc6k ◀ Ducking through intense belts of violent radiation as it skimmed over the clouds of Jupiter at 130,000 miles per hour, NASA’s Juno spacecraft finally clinched its spot on Monday 4th of July in the orbit of the solar system’s largest planet.


It took five years for Juno to travel this far on its $1.1 billion mission, and the moment was one that NASA scientists and space enthusiasts had eagerly — and anxiously — anticipated.

Juno is just the second spacecraft to enter orbit around Jupiter. NASA’s Galileo spacecraft spent eight years there surveying the planet and its many moons. But except for a probe that parachuted into Jupiter’s atmosphere, Galileo did not have the tools that Juno does to delve into what lies beneath Jupiter’s clouds.
