Fact Sheet: Juno
Published: September 30, 2015
With the exception of the sun, Jupiter is the most dominant object in the solar system. Because of its enormous size and the fact that it was likely the first of the planets to form, it has profoundly influenced the formation and evolution of the other bodies that orbit our star. NASA’s Juno mission will allow us to examine this gas giant planet from its innermost core to the outer reaches of its enormous magnetic force field.
