NASA’s Juno mission to remain in current orbit at Jupiter

Submit on Friday, February 17th, 2017 22:58

NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter, which has been in orbit around the gas giant since 4 July 2016, will remain in its current 53-day orbit for the remainder of the mission. This will allow Juno to accomplish its science goals, while avoiding the risk of a previously-planned engine firing that would have reduced the spacecraft’s orbital period to 14 days.
