  • Júpiter y sus colores visibles al público

La sonda fue lanzada el 5 de agosto de 2011 desde el Centro Espacial Kennedy, en Florida.

"Júpiter llena por completo la imagen, con solo una pista del exterminador (donde la luz del día se desvanece a la noche) en la esquina superior derecha, y sin extremidades visibles (el borde curvo del planeta)", apunta la NASA en un comunicado. La sonda tiene instrumentos a bordo que le permiten mapear los campos de gravedad de Júpiter, investigar la composición de su atmósfera y monitorear las auroras del planeta, entre otras tareas.

Juno cuenta con una cámara con la que fotografía al planeta cada 53 días, mientras viaja a velocidades que superan los 210,000 kilómetros por hora. Su misión actual está programada para continuar hasta julio, pero los científicos pueden proponer extenderla en ese momento.
