NASA Launches Juno

A NASA satellite called Juno scheduled to be launched this weekend. The satellite will be carried by an unmanned rocket named Atlas 5 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Juno - A NASA Satellite

Juno Launch is scheduled on 5 August. The spacecraft was designed by Lockheed Martin Astronautics of Denver, Colorado. The mission cost 1.1 billion U.S. dollars.
The satellite is scheduled to belt around Jupiter for a year. Juno will surround Jupiter is much closer than the plane-spacecraft ever before in the planet's orbit.
During this new satellite released by the Galileo spacecraft for NASA last made a trip to Jupiter, the closest planet. Although the aircraft was only capable of relaying data for 58 minutes before it was destroyed because it succumbed to the pressure intensity of the heat.
Travel Juno to Jupiter will last for five years. Upon his arrival in July 2016, Juno will land on a narrow region between the planet to the edge of the radiation belts. Juno will then spend a year orbiting the poles of Jupiter, about 3100 miles above the cloud tops.
Juno tries to examine how much water is owned by the planet, what triggers the magnetic field is extensive, and what a solid core that is under a dense atmosphere and heat.
Juno electronic heart is protected in a dome of titanium. However, Juno will also likely fall into the Jovian radiation after about a year. Juno is probably the last movement of diving into the planet's atmosphere.
"Jupiter holds many secrets about how we (humans) is formed," said researchers from Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio Texas, Scott Bolton.
Scientists have so far convinced that Jupiter is the planet first formed after the formation of the sun, although until now they are not sure how the planet formed. But today scientists are still wondering how much water inside the planet that the distance is five times more than the sun-earth distance.
Jupiter, like the sun, consisting of hydrogen, helium and other elements like oxygen. The scientists believe the oxygen in Jupiter joins with hydrogen to form water which can be measured with a microwave sounder, one of the eight instruments on the Juno.
However the formation, Jupiter has a mass more than twice the planets combined. It makes it have a gravitational muscle to survive on almost all of the original building materials. "That is why we are very interested in understanding where we came from and how the planets were made," said Bolton.
