Juno begins orbit of Jupiter

NASA’s Juno spacecraft has just started orbiting Jupiter. It’s a triumph for the 1.1 billion-US-dollar mission that aims to discover the origins of the largest planet in the solar system. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California erupted in cheers on hearing the news. Juno was launched five years ago, and has since traveled 2.7 billion kilometers. The unmanned spacecraft will remain in orbit for 20 months. In its final orbit, Juno will dive into Jupiter’s atmosphere, where it will be crushed and vaporized.
