NASA’s $1 billion Juno spacecraft completed its 10th high-speed trip around Jupiter on December 16.
Researchers at NASA and the Southwest Research Institute uploaded the raw image data to their websites in late December. Since then, dozens of people have processed the black-and-white files into gorgeous, calendar-ready pictures.
Here are some of the best new photos and animations made with JunoCam data by Doran and other fans of the spacecraft.
NASA launched Juno in 2011, and it t took nearly five years for the probe to reach Jupiter.
Juno’s orbit takes it far beyond Jupiter — then quickly and closely around the world — to minimize exposing electronics to the planet’s harsh radiation.
During each 53.5-day orbit, called a perijove, JunoCam records a new batch of photos.
The spacecraft is the only one ever to fly above and below Jupiter’s poles.
Researchers are trying to make sense of the gas giant’s swirling mess of polar cloud formations, like these captured during Juno’s tenth perijove.
The planet’s many bands of cloud groups are also a scientific puzzle.
Some of the storms seen on Jupiter are larger than Earth’s diameter.
A full set of JunoCam images looks like this:
But some fans of the spacecraft have figured out how to stitch them together into time-lapse movies.
NASA expects Juno to orbit Jupiter for at least a couple more years, and continue beaming back incredible new pictures.
However, the space agency will eventually destroy the $1 billion robot. This will prevent an accidental crash into Jupiter’s icy moon Europa, which may harbor an ocean — and potentially alien life.
