NASA's Juno spacecraft sent its first batch of science data to Earth. Part of the discoveries is the Earth-sized storms on Jupiter's south pole.
Less than nine months after Juno entered Jupiter's orbit, it will perform its fifth flyby. The flyby is expected to produce more scientific data about some features of the planet including its complex magnetic field.
The solar-powered Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter suddenly activated its safe mode feature the night before it was scheduled for a flyby of the planet.
NASA's Juno probe is currently orbiting the giant gas planet, Jupiter. The spacecraft captured stunning images of the planet during its first flyby and is expected to produce more science-worthy material in the next 35 more flybys.
