Does NASA have pictures of Jupiter?
NASA’s Juno spacecraft has been orbiting Jupiter and taking jaw-dropping photos of the gas giant since 2016. Juno has flown past Jupiter’s polar cyclones, anticyclones, auroras, the Great Red Spot, and enormous moons. Citizen scientists touch up Juno’s raw images to highlight storms and clouds in stunning color.
Will NASA ever go to Jupiter?
NASA has authorized a mission extension for its Juno spacecraft exploring Jupiter. The agency’s most distant planetary orbiter will now continue its investigation of the solar system’s largest planet through September 2025, or until the spacecraft’s end of life.
Is it possible to land on Jupiter?
Surface. As a gas giant, Jupiter doesn’t have a true surface. The planet is mostly swirling gases and liquids. While a spacecraft would have nowhere to land on Jupiter, it wouldn’t be able to fly through unscathed either.
What Jupiter looks like from space?
Jupiter is covered in swirling cloud stripes. It has big storms like the Great Red Spot, which has been going for hundreds of years. Jupiter is a gas giant and doesn’t have a solid surface, but it may have a solid inner core about the size of Earth. Jupiter also has rings, but they’re too faint to see very well.
Has any satellite landed on Jupiter?
On 5 July 2016, spacecraft Juno arrived and entered the planet’s orbit—the second craft ever to do so. Sending a craft to Jupiter is difficult, mostly due to large fuel requirements and the effects of the planet’s harsh radiation environment.
How long will Juno last?

|Mission duration||Planned: 7 years Elapsed: 10 years, 7 months, 11 days Cruise: 4 years, 10 months, 29 days Science phase: 4 years (extended until September 2025)|
Can humans go to Jupiter?
The planet is mostly swirling gases and liquids. While a spacecraft would have nowhere to land on Jupiter, it wouldn’t be able to fly through unscathed either. The extreme pressures and temperatures deep inside the planet crush, melt, and vaporize spacecraft trying to fly into the planet.
What planets have humans landed?
Explanation: Only our two nearest neighbours Venus and Mars have been landed on. Landing on another planet is technically challenging and many attempted landings have failed. Mars is the most explored of the planets.
