Juno is a scientific mission, and pictures are just a nice little bonus.

Still, Juno will give us the highest-resolution images than any spacecraft before it.

We just have to wait.

P.S. Turns out it's not the first time we've seen Jupiter's poles. Cassini (which has been my favourite space mission for years) has captured this "movie" of Jupiter's north pole: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov...

Bands of eastward and westward winds on Jupiter appear as concentric rotating circles in a movie composed of Cassini images which have been reprojected to appear as if the viewer were floating over Jupiter's north pole. The sequence covers 70 days, from October 1 to December 9, 2000. Cassini's narrow-angle camera cap tured the images of Jupiter's atmosphere in near-infrared light.

The video in the link reveals concentric rings and mini-storms riding around the pole.

a reply to: TheConstruKctionofLight You have a point with your post, yet your first link sites not shows existing Jupiter temple, also the 2nd and 3rd links are total BS. However the NASA info you point out is totally on the topic. Thanx.

This, for me, is why I really don't need my Universe to be sprinkled with fairy dust or alien flashing lights to make it interesting - it's just incredible as it is:



Oh, and look - a space dragon!

I guess if that's what you kids are calling it these days...





But yeah, fluid dynamics in space make for a captivating sight.

JPL have released audio made from the auroras of Jupiter’s north pole , eerie.


Among the more unique data sets collected by Juno during its first scientific sweep by Jupiter was that acquired by the mission’s Radio/Plasma Wave Experiment (Waves), which recorded ghostly-sounding transmissions emanating from above the planet. These radio emissions from Jupiter have been known about since the 1950s but had never been analyzed from such a close vantage point.

“Jupiter is talking to us in a way only gas-giant worlds can,” said Bill Kurth, co-investigator for the Waves instrument from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. “Waves detected the signature emissions of the energetic particles that generate the massive auroras which encircle Jupiter’s north pole. These emissions are the strongest in the solar system. Now we are going to try to figure out where the electrons come from that are generating them.”

a reply to: gortex Great stuff!
I look forward to more.Those recordings of the auroras are wonderful! I hope we get more images and data.

Great thread. Absolutely love anything and everything regarding the "JUNO" mission. Actual new things being discovered everyday, and proving theories wrong, or right. Thanks again for the thread. Awesome read.
