This week NASA succenssfully launched Juno a probe headed to Jupiter. The journey will take before it arrives, and we are sure to get an in depth look at Jupiter once it’s there. In Roman mythology, Juno was one of Jupiter’s lovers. Oh, and also, possibly his sister. (wait… what?)
I remember when Cassini launched on it’s way to Saturn. I have a relative who was working on the project at the time, and when he told me it would take 7 years to get there I thought the day would never come. That was 14 years ago. Scary how time flies. I suspect Juno will be arriving at Jupiter before we realize it!
