Destination Jupiter - July 4, 2016. The NASA probe Juno successfully enters orbit around Jupiter. Its mission: unravel mysteries, explore how the gas giant formed, uncover the secrets of its violent storms—and glimpse the origin of our Solar System.
NASA's Juno spacecraft obtained this color view on June 21, 2016, at a distance of 6.8 million miles (10.9 million kilometers) from Jupiter. Juno will arrive at Jupiter on July 4. As Juno makes its initial approach, the giant planet's four largest moons -- Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto -- are visible.
NASA Jupiter Probe Makes 4th Flyby of Giant Planet. This false-color view of Jupiter's polar haze was created by citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt using data from the JunoCam instrument on NASA's Juno spacecraft. The image was taken on 12/11, 2016, when the spacecraft was 285,000 miles from Jupiter

NASA's Juno spacecraft is a 21st century orbiter to study the largest planet in our solar system. <a href="http://www.space.com/12472-juno-probe-spacecraft-jupiter-nasa.html">See how Juno will study Jupiter here</a>.
Jupiter is probably the best place in the solar system to study how the magnetic fields of planets are generated. The Juno spacecradft will arrive at the Jovian system in July 2016--then circle the planet and collect data.
On July 4th, 2016, NASA will insert the probe into Gas Giant's orbit. The spacecraft will fly within 3000 miles of Jupiter's cloud tops, in a region of intense radiation.
