    When does it open in theaters?


    Ok, seriously, I didn't know Jupiter was such an interesting planet with all these interesting features, but that trailer is still a bit over the top somehow. I mean, science is meant to be dry and boring number crunching, not action maneuvers inside The Zone.

    By the way, it's much easier to survey gas giants in Stellaris, but I'm curious what they will find out now. Near unlimited energy for hydrogen cars/spaceships?

    yes some of that trailer made me think of Shatner's best moments of camp in Star Trek
    If you want to get more interactive with Juno and the solar system, look at Nasa's Eyes:

    Will Uranus be next? That is the question.

    Cleaner version of post elsewhere:
    Trust you, NASA.
    I am in hysterics.

    You know how all of Jupiters moons are named after lovers and affairs?
    Yeah, NASA is sending a craft to check up on Jupiter.

    You know what that craft is called?
    JUNO

    Who's Juno?
    JUPITER'S WIFE

    NASA is sending Jupiters wife to check on Jupiter and his affiars and lovers.

    Trust you, NASA.

    Not exactly Juno related, but news about Jupiter:

    https://blogs.scientificamerican.com...-has-69-moons/

    The bodies that orbit Jupiter are a mixed bunch; 1km up to 20+km, and some on orbits that take generations to complete.

    The probe allows some better guesses to be made about Jupiters' interior:

    The musings will (hopefully) get clearer answers as data and analysis continue.

    Dive into the Red Spot?
    Yes we can! Juno goes deep, for Science!

    The temperature just rockets as Juno dives...manned missions do not look like an option

    If we can actually fabricate some means of handling the pressure, I will bet we can get the temp covered at the same time. Not an easy task though.
