The Juno orbiter’s mission is to understand the origin and evolution of gigantic Jupiter. As it orbits the planet, Juno will explore the composition and structure of Jupiter’s dynamic atmosphere, the nature of its deepest core, and the characteristics of its magnetosphere and bright auroras. Scott Bolton, the principal investigator for Juno, will guide us through the spacecraft’s journey as it opens a window on Jupiter’s long-held secrets.
The Exploring Space lectures are made possible by the generous support of Aerojet Rocketdyne and United Launch Alliance.
