Scientists from NASA's Juno mission to Jupiter will discuss their first in-depth science results in a media teleconference at 11 a.m. PDT (2 p.m. EDT) Thursday, May 25, when multiple papers with early findings will be published online by the journal Science and Geophysical Research Letters.

The teleconference participants are:

  • Diane Brown, program executive at NASA Headquarters in Washington
  • Scott Bolton, Juno principal investigator at Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio
  • Jack Connerney, deputy principal investigator at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland
  • Heidi Becker, Juno radiation monitoring investigation lead at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California
  • Candy Hansen, Juno co-investigator at the Planetary Science Institute in Tucson, Arizona
  • Questions may be submitted during the briefing on Twitter using #askNASA.

    Juno launched on Aug. 5, 2011, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, and arrived in orbit around Jupiter on July 4, 2016. In its current exploration mission, Juno soars low over the planet's cloud tops, as close as about 2,100 miles (3,400 kilometers). During these flybys, Juno probes beneath the obscuring cloud cover of Jupiter and studies its auroras to learn more about the planet's origins, structure, atmosphere and magnetosphere.
