NASA's Juno mission is just beginning to phone home with photos:

The JunoCam camera aboard NASA's Juno mission is operational and sending down data after the spacecraft's July 4 arrival at Jupiter. Juno's visible-light camera was turned on six days after Juno fired its main engine and placed itself into orbit around the largest planetary inhabitant of our solar system.

Robotic space voyages1 like this one are truly amazing, and a true testament to what can be accomplished with the help of Science, Technology, Math, and Engineering.

The first high-resolution images of the gas giant Jupiter are still a few weeks away.

This could get very interesting.

  1. I really enjoyed typing that phrase.
