Juno Mission to Jupiter
Juno’s primary goal is to reveal the story o the ormationand evolution o the planet Jupiter. Utilizing long-proventechnologies on a simple spinning spacecrat placedin an elliptical polar orbit, Juno will observe Jupiter’sgravity and magnetic felds, atmospheric dynamicsand composition, and the coupling between the interior,atmosphere and magnetosphere that determines theplanet’s properties and drives its evolution. An under-standing o the origin and evolution o Jupiter, as thearchetype o giant planets, can provide the knowledgeneeded to understand the origin o our solar system andplanetary systems around other stars.
