NASA’s New Frontiers Program
The Juno mission was the second spacecraft designed under NASA’s New Frontiers Program. The first was the Pluto New Horizons mission, launched in January 2006 and reached Pluto in the summer of 2015. The third mission will be the Origins-Spectral Interpretation-Resource Identification-Security-Regolith Explorer, or OSIRIS-Rex — the first U.S. mission to carry materials from an asteroid back to Earth. OSIRIS-Rex is scheduled to launch in September 2016. The program provides opportunities to carry out medium- class missions identified as top priority objectives in the Decadal Solar System Exploration Survey, conducted by the Space Studies Board of the National Research Council in Washington.
