Replay: Juno orbital insertion at Jupiter.

On July 4th, NASA Television aired live coverage of the solar-powered Juno spacecraft's arrival at Jupiter after an almost five-year journey.

Juno is the first spacecraft to orbit the poles of our solar system's most massive planet. It will circle the Jovian world 37 times during 20 months, skimming to within 3,100 miles (5,000 kilometers) above the cloud tops, providing new answers to ongoing mysteries about the planet's core, composition and magnetic fields.
