As mankind begin to sort new land for inhabitation outside the planet Earth due to the over population of Planet Earth, Jupiter isn’t left out as one of the possible promise lands. About 5 years ago NASA sent a spacecraft to begin its orbit around Jupiter, the name of that spacecraft was Juno. Juno traveled at over 130,000 miles per house, went round the clouds of Jupiter going over atomic radiations and not crashing since it was built for such. The project to send Juno and other persons in it to go to Jupiter which is the planet with the biggest solar system power cost about a billion dollar if not more than that. Costing that much wasn’t the problem as long as the purpose of the project was accomplished, nonetheless NASA scientists seems to have meet a breakthrough. Although, it might seem unlikely at the time, success seems not to be far-fetched with this special spacecraft of NASA.
By 11:53pm Eastern Time, NASA office on Earth got a signal from the spacecraft, explaining that the spacecraft encountered a 30minute and more burn that allowed the spacecraft to land in the targeted location in Jupiter’s orbit. This achievement brought a lot of joy to the ears of the hearers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, because it is a great news of a possible or impending success. Those on ground at this Land in NASA’s base were in charge of the mission or project as the case maybe.
The head investigator in charge of the Juno spacecraft to Jupiter is Scott Bolton, he noted the project to Jupiter seemed impossible and unlikely to be successful until the successful landing of the spacecraft. The executive officer of the project at NASA, Diane Brown, started that all plans went accordingly providing the desired result. During a news interview conference, she said that “knowing that sleep is possible tonight, without any worry on what might likely be next for tomorrow, is a great feeling.” Rick Nybakken the general project manager continued her statement saying that, “we expected a lot of problems with this project, see what happened? We have no cause to worry any longer”.
Galileo was the first NASA spacecraft of its kind to enter the orbit, it used about 8years to take not of the planet and also the many moons around it. Juno being the second spacecraft to go to the orbit was equipped with more tools that Galileo to enhance its journey and bring in more results than the first spacecraft, to go under the clouds around the orbit in Jupiter. Juno experienced remarkable success much more than the first spacecraft that made it to Jupiter.
It is planned that Juno goes around the orbit about 37times or more and in the month of February 2018, it is expected to end the project with a dive into the planet Earth like its predecessor Galileo did in the year 2003.
