Juno Spacecraft Captures First Incredible Images of Jupiter

Nasa’s Juno spacecraft has captured the first close-up images of Jupiter.

The Guardian reports the $1.1 billion probe went into orbit last July on a mission to get images from Jupiter and learn about its impact on other planets in the solar system.

“We were all jumping up and down with excitement when the images came down,” said Fran Bagenal, a planetary space physicist at the University of Colorado.
