Jupiter looks fetching in an enhanced Juno space probe image highlighting the gas giant's exotic sunlit atmosphere.
This image of the sunlit part of Jupiter and its swirling atmosphere was created by a citizen scientist (Alex Mai) using data from Juno's JunoCam instrument. JunoCam's raw images are available at www.missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam for the public to peruse and process into image products.

Jupiter’s moon Io is the most volcanically-active body in our solar system, and a recent observational campaign offers a little more insight into the a terrifying hellscape that awaits any unfortunate space probes we send there. Read more...
“While it stretches the imagination to devise a mechanism that could operate over distances of 500 kilometers, Io’s volcanism is far more extreme than anything we have on Earth and continues to amaze and baffle us,” said Katherine de Kleer,...
Extraterrestrial exploration has 99 problems, and Schiaparelli and Juno are two. Thankfully there's a new deep zoom into Eta Carinae in which we can drown our collective sorrows.
(University of California - Berkeley) UC Berkeley astronomers who have been tracking volcanic activity on Io at high frequency since 2013 using adaptive optics on the Keck and Gemini telescopes published their first 29 months of observations. Show More Summary
Jupiter's moon Io continues to be the most volcanically active body in the solar system, as documented by the longest series of frequent, high-resolution observations of the moon's thermal emission ever obtained.
ThinkGeek has created a colorful string of planetary holiday lights that represent our solar system. The set of glowing lights include the Sun, Earth, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Venus, Neptune, and Pluto. We’re fans of all of outer space, but our own solar system is by far our favorite. Seeing images of new local […]
NASA's Juno Mission "went into safe mode Tuesday night while nearing the lowest point of its orbit around the gas giant, according to Scott Bolton, the mission’s principal investigator out of the Southwest Research Institute. “The spacecraft safe mode condition...
A new image, processed by a citizen scientist using data from a NASA spacecraft near Jupiter, shows the huge planet in a friendly new light. While Jupiter — the largest planet in our solar system — is usually known for its immense gravity...Show More Summary
It’s hard to pick the one weirdest thing about Ceres. It’s the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Most of the billions of chunks of debris in the belt really are leftover rubble from the early solar system,...Show More Summary
The spacecraft put itself into “safe mode” early Wednesday and restarted its computer, scuttling observations that were to take place as it passed 3,000 miles above Jupiter’s clouds.
NASA's currently investigating.
Although the spacecraft has entered "safe" mode, mission planners aren't concerned.
Nasa announces Juno craft circling gas giant had to shut down camera and instruments, while ESA says Schiaparelli lander may have crashed on red planet Nasa’s Juno space probe orbiting Jupiter went into “safe mode” with cameras and instruments offline just as it prepared to pass over the immense planet’s dense cloud tops, the space agency said.

Officials in charge of NASA's Juno space probe orbiting Jupiter last weekend delayed a crucial maneuver due to a main engine malfunction, they said. In addition, the ship's computer systems automatically went into safety mode early Wednesday (5:47 GMT). Show More Summary
NASA’s Juno spacecraft lost its main computer and science instruments shortly before it was due to make an orbital pass near Jupiter on Wednesday, scuttling highly anticipated close-up observations of the largest planet in the solar system. The U.S. space agency said the glitch followed an...
Engineers are troubleshooting a pair of problems that interrupted science observations by NASA's Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter
NASA's tennis court-size Juno probe is in a bit of a sticky situation 600 million miles from Earth. Just days before Juno swooped by Jupiter on Wednesday morning — its second 130,000 mph flyby since August 27 — the spacecraft experienced...Show More Summary
