Topic: NASA’s Juno Mission to Jupiter: Update after 22 orbits.
Juno has been orbiting Jupiter since July 2016, passing close over the cloud tops every 53 days.
This talk will summarize the mission and discuss the science results obtained to date - including puzzling deep interior structure of the gas giant planet, dazzling auroral emissions, as well as the amazing cloud structures revealed by JunoCam in collaboration with a vast citizen science community.
The meeting will be in class room 2 at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church located on the south side of Third Ave between Terry and Pratt.
