now we need to wait until end of august for images and data.
37 orbits, 14 days for each one.
remember, this mission focus only on jupiter, dont expect any data about the moons.
even if the juno cam will try to image europa or other moon, the image will be very blurry.
the orbit of juno and the distance from the moons, make it impossible to get high res images of the moons.
so dont get your expectations high for europa images and data.
but there is good news: what we can learn that related to europa, is about the radiation levels and mangnetoshpere of jupiter, learning about that can teach us about europa condition on the surface and even under the ice

they really did it within one second of its scheduled? whaaa imagine the math behind it.
how did they know exactly the speed juno get in earth assist flyby or with juno burn time.
mind blown!

It's a little less impressive when you remember they make a few small course corrections along the way. smile But yeah, interplanetary trajectories are computed very precisely. It's amazing.

Beautiful image of one of Jupiter's poles (I think it's the south pole, but I could be wrong)

Juno’s First Slice of Jupiter



It seems the typical banding is repeated somehow for at least 200 miles below the upper atmosphere.
