NASA’s Juno spacecraft has been orbiting Jupiter for just over five years. Some of the spacecraft’s goals are to measure the composition of the planet and the strength of its gravitational field. Tons of data was sent back to Earth, including some ideas about Jupiter inscriptions, elves, And the Incredible colors. Now, submit photos of the closest flight in its history.
NASA has turned those images into some amazing animations for everyone to enjoy.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory created amazing animations and shared them with NASA Youtube Channel. The video description indicates that on June 7 and 8 of this year, Juno flew closer to Jupiter’s ice-covered moon Ganymede than any spacecraft in more than two decades. The animation consists of images taken by the space probe on those specific dates.
To animate the images, NASA projected them onto a digital field. Next, the JPL team added “artificial tires” to the video, detailing the routes and departures from Jupiter and the icy moon.
Seeing thunderstorms in Jupiter’s undulating atmosphere—which certainly look like cream mixed with coffee—for example, is quite a visual treat. as well as scars and digging in Ganymede. (The moon is one of 79 orbiting Jupiter, the largest in the solar system.)
Perhaps the most incredible thing about the appearance of Jupiter and Ganymede is how melancholy they feel. Humans are almost tempted to explore these amazing worlds, which are very similar but different from ours. Although this is probably just the result of a Sagan-esque clip which makes us Jones for more old school Cosmos.
For anyone who would prefer not to leave the orbit of Jupiter, there is no need. Juno sure didn’t, and he continues to collect all kinds of data from his corner of the solar system. Speaking of which anyone else can see HD pictures of red spot buyer for hours?
