Juno - Revealing Jupiter's Depths

On the evening of July 4, 2016, NASA's New Frontiers spacecraft Juno will ignite its main engine to enter an unprecedented cloud-skimming orbit around Jupiter, our solar system's largest planet. Jupiter is the archetype giant planet, now known to be a very common type of substellar object in our Galaxy. Juno will make a series of close-range passes to look at Jupiter's atmosphere and interior and obtain benchmark data about the class of planet that best preserves the first million years of planetary system origins.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30p.m. Parking in university surface parking lots is free after 5 p.m. Please be careful not to park in service or reserved spaces. Metered street parking is also available at no cost after 5 p.m. Parking in the Cherry Avenue Garage is available after 5 p.m. at a cost of $1.00 per hour.
