    Publishing date:

    July 3, 2017

    NASA’s Juno probe has been studying Jupiter’s structure and composition since July 2016. Its orbital trajectory brings it between the planet and its rings at an altitude of 5,000 km. During its mission, it will complete a total of 32 orbits before dropping into the planet’s atmosphere in 2021. Several papers have just been published about the first 2 flyovers. Tristan Guillot is an astrophysicist at the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur in Nice, France; he co-authored 3 of these papers and helps us understand the probe’s first results.
