Juno Begins Returning Data from Jupiter

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 voyages[^1] 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.
