Juno

The Juno mission is the first competed mission selected for NASA's New Frontiers Program. NASA's solar-powered Juno spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on August 5, 2011. Juno will conduct a first-time, in-depth study of the giant planet. This mission will place a spacecraft in a polar orbit around Jupiter to investigate the existence of an ice-rock core; determine the amount of global water and ammonia present in the atmosphere; study convection and deep wind profiles in the atmosphere; investigate the origin of the Jovian magnetic field; and explore the polar magnetosphere.
