After a journey of more than 5 years, the Juno spacecraft is ready for its detailed look at Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system.
Using Eyes on the Solar System and simulated data from the Juno flight team you can ride onboard the spacecraft using “Eyes on Juno” on your Mac or PC.
In this interactive visualization, you can ride along with the Juno spacecraft in real-time at any time during the entire mission. For example, watch the arrival at Jupiter on the 4th of July, 2016, or see Juno use Earth’s gravity as a slingshot to pick up speed, or just learn about the science of Jupiter and about the spacecraft itself. You can even turn on and off the magnetic field, aurorae, and the radiation belt, all in 3D! All of this and more is waiting to be explored.
