breaking approach towards Jupiter Juno, the spacecraft on a mission to Jupiter, pamdora charms orbited closer to the giant planet than any man made object before it, in a record breaking approach on Saturday.
The Nasa creation, which was launched five years ago,made pandora beads outlet theclose approach to Jupiter by soaring around 2,600 miles above the planet. As it cruisedby at a speed of 130,000 mph, Juno was expected to capture astonishing images and plenty of scientific data, say mission controllers at Nasa. The probe was said to have reached its closest point at 1.51pm following the spacecraft's dizzying flight path which involved escaping Earth's orbit and moving into cheap pandora jewelry bracelets Jupiter's. Scott Bolton, a principle investigator at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio in Texas, said Juno would have its whole suite of nine instruments activated as it soars above Jupiter's swirling cloud tops. The instruments had previously been switched off so as to survive the entry into the planet's dangerous radiation belts. "This is the first time we will be close to Jupiter since we entered orbit on 4 July. Back then we turned all our instruments off to focus on the rocket burn to get Juno into orbit around Jupiter," said Dr Bolton. "Since then, we have checked Juno from stem to stern and back again. We still have more testing to do, but we are confident that everything is working great, so for this upcoming flyby Juno's eyes and ears, our science instruments, will all be open. "This is our first opportunity to really take a close up look at the king of our solar system and begin to figure out how he works." Nasa space agents have said they hope to release some of the first detailed pictures of Jupiter's north and south poles. It could take some days for the images to be downloaded on Earth. Scientists are also anticipating a wealth of data about Jupiter's composition, gravity, magnetic field, and the source of its 384 mph winds. A British team from the University of Leicester are playing a key role in the mission by focusing on the planet's magnetic field, its auroras and atmosphere. These are titanium builtLego figures of 17th century astronomer Galileo Galilei, the Roman goddess Juno and her husband the Roman god Jupiter. A spacecraft called Galileo has also orbited Jupiter and its moons from 1995 to 2003, but at a pandora gold bracelet distance much further out than Juno. The previous record for a close approach to the planet was set by Nasa's Pioneer 11 spacecraft, which passed at a distance of 27,000 miles in 1974. In total, 35 more close flybys are planned during Juno's primary mission, which is scheduled to end in February 2018. Juno was firstlaunched into space by an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral inFloridaon 5 August2011. It took five years to complete the 1.8 billion mile journey from Earth, including a trek throughcircuit frazzling radiationthat requiresits flight computer to be armoured in a titanium vault weighing almost 400 lb. At the end of its 20 month mission, Juno will self destruct by plunging into Jupiter's dense atmosphere.
