The geniuses at NASA have given us another great video – this time a flyby over the planet Jupiter! Check it out below:
The video was created using images from NASA’s Juno mission during its 27th close flyby of the planet on June 2, 2020. The Juno spacecraft flies about 2,1000 miles from the tops of Jupiter’s clouds. Jupiter has such tremendous gravity, that it accelerates Juno’s speed to about 130,000 mph!
Juno was launched from Earth about 9 years ago. It took 5 more years before it settled into a polar orbit of Jupiter and began sending NASA scientists photos and data of the planet. When Juno’s mission is complete, it will crash into Jupiter, snapping photos all the way.
