Now begins a long cruise. It'll return to Earth for a gravity-assist flyby on October 9, 2013 and will enter orbit at Jupiter five years from now, on July 4, 2016. Juno is a solar-powered orbiter that is being sent to Jupiter on a mission to figure out what its gloriously colored clouds are hiding; it's going to study Jupiter's interior. But because it would be a crime to send a ship to Jupiter and not send back beautiful photos, it's carrying Junocam, whose pictures of Jupiter will all be released to the Web as soon as they hit Earth. Mars Exploration Rovers Update: Opportunity Arrives at Endeavour Crater, Mission Begins Anew More than seven and a half years after landing, Opportunity arrived at its long-anticipated destination, the rim of Endeavour Crater, and in less than three weeks found something strange enough to launch a new Martian mystery, and with it a whole new mission for the Mars Exploration Rover team, mission leaders announced at a press teleconference earlier today.
