Juno to Jupiter

ULA launched the Juno probe from Earth to Jupiter today after some minor gremlins.

This will begin a new phase of science and research into the planets and the formation of the solar system.


They're calling this the "first solar powered probe." I guess that means there's no traditional rocket motor on board the probe.

I am very excited about this mission. Also looking very much forward to the Curiosity mission to Mars! We'll get to learn new things, how cool is that!
