After five years traveling through space to its destination, our Juno spacecraft will arrive in orbit around Jupiter today, July 4, 2016. This video shows a peek of what the spacecraft saw as it closed in on its destination before instruments were turned off.

Jupiter doesn’t orbit the Sun. The other planets in our solar system are so much smaller than the Sun that their centers of mass are deep inside of it. Jupiter, however, is so huge that it has the same center of mass as the Sun. Basically, they both orbit the same point, which is just above the Sun itself. Source Source 2 Source 3

Galileo lives on Jupiter now. He discovered Jupiter’s moons back in 1610, but 400 years later, when NASA’s Juno probe reached its destination in July 2016, he finally got to ‘visit’ the planet in the form of a Lego minifigure, which was molded from solid aluminum to protect it from radiation.
