Thank you for reading the news about technology: Juno spacecraft captures new image of Jupiter and now with the details
Cairo – Samia Sayed – NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured a view of Jupiter that is impossible to capture from Earth, and this is because Jupiter’s orbit is outside the Earth’s orbit, which means that any observer on our planet can only see the side of Jupiter illuminated by the sun.
According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, this scene consists of seven images taken during the passage of Juno near Jupiter on January 12, 2022.
Juno reached Jupiter for the first time on July 4, 2016, after a five-year journey 1.8 billion miles (2.8 billion km) from Earth.
No previous spacecraft has orbited this gas giant planet, although two others have been sent through its atmosphere, and the spacecraft is expected to study the composition of Jupiter’s atmosphere until 2025.
NASA also released a separate image that Juno took, this time during one of the nearby passes of Jupiter’s giant moon Ganymede, the largest moon in our solar system, even bigger than Mercury.
Ganymede is the only moon known to have a magnetic field of its own, which causes auroras that orbit around the moon’s poles, and evidence also suggests that Ganymede may be hiding a liquid water ocean beneath its icy surface.
