NASA provides an update on Juno's arrival at Jupiter.

On July 5, just hours after NASA's Juno spacecraft arrived at the planet Jupiter, NASA held a press briefing at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California to provide a status update on the spacecraft.

Juno's arrival at our solar system's most massive planet was the culmination of a nearly five-year journey through space. The spacecraft will be the first to orbit the poles of Jupiter - on a mission to provide new answers to ongoing mysteries about the planet's core, composition and magnetic fields, as well as clues about the origins of our solar system.
