NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has provided the following Orbital Insertion press kit for the 4th of July critical insertion into Jupiter's orbit.

On Monday, the NASA's Juno spacecraft will arrive at Jupiter. Bill Nye explains Jupiter's deadly radiation. Jupiter produces the radiation equivalent of 100 million X-rays. Nye explains how NASA protects the instruments on the Juno spacecraft from this incredibly fierce environment.

NASA's Juno spacecraft has crossed the boundary of Jupiter's immense magnetic field. Juno's Waves instrument recorded the encounter with the bow shock over the course of about two hours on June 24, 2016.

On June 28, the booster for NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket was fired up for a major two-minute full-duration qualification ground test at Orbital ATK Propulsion Systems' test facilities in Promontory, Utah.

Fly along with NASA's Juno spacecraft at Jupiter. Turn on your sound to find out more about the planet, the mission and the spacecraft.

During a news briefing from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California the science team involved with the Juno mission to Jupiter talked about the scientific goals of the mission.

Juno has been headed for Jupiter since 2011 to study the gas giant's atmosphere, aurora, gravity and magnetic field. This infographic illustrates the radiation environments Juno has traveled through on its journey near Earth and in interplanetary space.

NASA's Juno spacecraft will make its long anticipated arrival at Jupiter on July 4.

In preparation for the imminent arrival of NASA's Juno spacecraft, astronomers have used ESO's Very Large Telescope to obtain spectacular new infrared images of Jupiter.

Juno Is On Final Approach To Jupiter

Today at exactly 9:57 and 48 seconds a.m. PDT, NASA's Juno spacecraft was 5.5 million miles (8.9 million kilometers) from its July 4th appointment with Jupiter.

A series of images made with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) provides an unprecedented view of the surface of Juno, one of the largest members of our solar system's main asteroid belt.

Juno Gets a Little Boost from Home

In October 2013, NASA's Juno spacecraft flew past the Earth to steal some energy for a ride to Jupiter. Along the way, it also stole some glimpses of home.

When NASA's Juno spacecraft flew past Earth on Oct. 9, 2013, it received a boost in speed of more than 8,800 mph (about 7.3 kilometer per second)

NASA's Juno spacecraft launched aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., Aug. 5, 2011, beginning a five-year journey to Jupiter. But it wasn't charted on a direct path. Before it reaches its destination, Juno will greet the Earth one last time. The spacecraft will perform a flyby Oct. 9, passing within 347 miles of Earth.

NASA's Juno spacecraft is halfway to Jupiter. The Jovian-system-bound spacecraft reached the milestone today (8/12/13) at 5:25 a.m. PDT (8:25 a.m. EDT/12:25 UTC).

NASA's Juno spacecraft successfully executed a second Deep Space Maneuver, called DSM-2 last Friday, Sept. 14. The 30 minute firing of its main engine refined the Jupiter-bound spacecraft's trajectory, setting the stage for a gravity assist from a flyby of Earth on Oct 9, 2013. Juno will arrive at Jupiter on July 4, 2016.
