This mission will be very dangerous for the probe.  It will face large amounts of radiation, gravity and the largest magnetosphere in the solar system.  No probe in history has come this close to Jupiter 6/27/16

The Lego pieces are crafted in the likeness of Galileo Galilei who discovered 4 of Jupiter's moons in 1610 the Roman god Jupiter and Jupiter's wife Juno.

When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona

Uranus [Infographic] - everything you always wanted to know about the third largest planet!

Uranus [Infographic] - everything you always wanted to know about the third largest planet!

Uranus is the third largest planet in our Solar System. Uranus has nine major rings and 27 known moons. This image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in infrared reveals cloud structures not normally visible. Methane gas in the upper atmosphere absorbs red light, giving the planet its blue-green color. Uranus is spinning on its side, probably because of a collision with a large object early in the Solar System's history.

Astronomers find the smallest star yet | EarthSky 7/12/17 Artist’s concept of newly-measured smallest star, called EBLM J0555-57Ab, in contrast to planets Jupiter and Saturn and to the small, cool star Trappist-1, known to be home to at least 7 planets- it’s massive enough to shine as a star, and its pull of gravity is some 300 times stronger than Earth’s

NASA’s Juno mission has been in orbit around Jupiter, the Solar System’s largest planet, for over a year now. During this time, it’s taken pictures of the cloudtops, poles and bands on Jupiter as never before, with more advanced instruments and cameras and also from closer distances than any other sp
