Jupiter: January 2018

ESA's Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer - JUICE - passed an important milestone, the ground segment requirements review, with flying colors.

For the first time since the twin Voyager spacecraft missions in 1979, scientists have produced far-infrared maps of Jupiter using NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, SOFIA.

NASA's Juno spacecraft was a little more than one Earth diameter from Jupiter when it captured this mind-bending, color-enhanced view of the planet's tumultuous atmosphere.
