This mission will be very dangerous for the probe.  It will face large amounts of radiation, gravity and the largest magnetosphere in the solar system.  No probe in history has come this close to Jupiter 6/27/16

This montage of images of Jupiter and its volcanic moon Io, was taken by the New Horizons spacecraft's flyby in early 2007. The Jupiter image is an infrared color composite taken by the spacecraft's near-infrared imaging spectrometer on Feb. 28, 2007. The infrared wavelengths used highlight variations in the altitude of the Jovian cloud tops.
