    Overheating of the camera “Juno” led to the loss of images of Jupiter

    (ORDO NEWS) — Most of the images of Jupiter taken during the last approach of the Juno automatic interplanetary station in mid-January turned out to be of poor quality due to overheating of the camera. This is the second such incident, the causes of which have not yet been determined, according to the NASA website. JunoCam is a telescopic color optical camera that has been installed at the Juno station,…

    Juno mission team examines engineering data from the JunoCam camera after the 48th flyby of Jupiter

    (ORDO NEWS) — The JunoCam camera installed on the Juno spacecraft did not receive all the planned images during the last flyby of Jupiter on January 22. Data received from the spacecraft indicates that JunoCam has encountered a problem similar to the one that occurred during the previous rendezvous with the gas giant. Then the team observed an anomalous increase in temperature after turning on the camera. However, in this…

    Juno mission explores the moons of Jupiter

    (ORDO NEWS) — NASA‘s Juno mission, which has made close flybys of Ganymede and Europa, is set to acquire images of Io on Dec. 15 as part of an ongoing study of Jupiter’s inner moons. Several papers based on information obtained during the flyby of Ganymede on June 7, 2021 have recently been published in the Journal of Geophysical Research and Geophysical Research Letters. They include data on the moon‘s…

    Juno captures close-up photos of Jupiter’s moon Europa

    (ORDO NEWS) — Observations by the Juno spacecraft provided the first close-up of Europa, Jupiter’s moon, in more than two decades. The highest-resolution photograph ever taken by Juno shows a detailed view of the moon’s heavily fractured icy crust. The image covers approximately 150×200 km of Europa’s surface, showing an area criss-crossed by a network of thin furrows and double ridges (pairs of long parallel lines indicating high ground in…

    Juno spacecraft approached the icy moon of Jupiter

    (ORDO NEWS) — NASA‘s Juno spacecraft flew within 357 km of Jupiter’s moon Europa. This is the closest rendezvous between a NASA spacecraft and Europe in over 20 years. Scientists believe that under the thick frozen crust of the moon of Jupiter, an ocean flows, increasing the likelihood of the existence of underwater life. The researchers are hoping they will be lucky and be able to observe possible water columns…

    Juno will receive detailed images of the surface of Europa on September 29

    (ORDO NEWS) — On September 29, 2022, NASA‘s Juno spacecraft will pass just 358 kilometers from the surface of Jupiter’s icy moon Europa. It is expected that during the flight the probe will receive the most detailed images of Europa, as well as collect valuable information about its interior, ionosphere, interaction with Jupiter’s magnetosphere and surface composition. This data will be used in the future in the preparation of the…

    Mission Juno Equipping the apparatus

    (ORDO NEWS) — The Juno mission was designed to meet the high demands of the harsh conditions maintained in Jupiter’s space environment, namely weak sunlight, extreme temperatures and destructive radiation. This spacecraft is wrapped in thermal blankets to protect it from the extreme conditions of outer space. Almost all of the most sensitive electronics are housed in an armored case that protects them from Jupiter’s harsh radiation. Machine overview Communication…

    Juno spacecraft captured Ganymede casting a stunning shadow on Jupiter

    (ORDO NEWS) — What is this large dark spot on the side of Jupiter? This may remind you of a certain scene in the sci-fi movie 2010: The Year We Made Contact where a growing black spot appears in Jupiter’s atmosphere. But this is a real photo, and the dark spot is just an elongated shadow of Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon. Just as when the Earth‘s Moon passes between our…

    (ORDO NEWS) — Giant Jupiter and the shadow of its largest moon, Ganymede, dominate this latest image from NASA spacecraft. On February 25, it passed for the 40th time near a planet spewing out streams of radiation, and the resulting raw images of this encounter were transmitted to Earth. After that, the scientist Thomas Thomopoulos created this amazing view based on what the JunoCam saw. At the time of the…

    Juno’s latest photo of Jupiter hides stunning detail

    (ORDO NEWS) — The gas giant has 79 known moons (and possibly even more unknowns), one of them even larger than Mercury. Juno explores connections between some of these moons and the planet—and sometimes, seeing them appear, photographs Jupiter itself. The last of the shots is so breathtaking that it almost looks like a piece of science fiction. Jupiter appears large, with its classic bands of swirling clouds and patchy…
