Juno and The New Jupiter: What Have We Learned So Far?
May 17 & 18
Juno is a solar-powered spacecraft which has been orbiting Jupiter since July 4, 2016. For a few hours every 53 days, Juno passes within a few thousand kilometers of the giant planet, and collects a wealth of new information about Jupiter. The data collected so far have revolutionized our understanding of Jupiter, and of giant planets in general. Dr. Steve Levin, Project Scientist for the Juno spacecraft, will present some of Juno’s current science results on the planet's origins, interior structure, deep atmosphere, and magnetosphere, and discuss the science expected from Juno in the coming years.
