Color illustration of Juno spacecraft in orbit at Juno.
The giant planet story is the story of the solar system ... NASA's Juno mission launched on August 5, 2011, and will arrive at Jupiter in July, 2016.

On August 5, 2011, NASA's Juno spacecraft launched toward Jupiter aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket. Here are various multimedia resources about the mission that will help us better understand Jupiter and its effect on the formation of our solar system:

Juno movie trailer

Juno, a NASA mission that will unlock the cloud-hidden mysteries of Jupiter, is spotlighted in this parody of a "coming attraction" trailer created by NASA Television.
