About This Round
Jupiter is close to the sun right now - too close for telescopes to image. We are not able to make predictions of what Points of Interest will be in our field of view. Thus, there won't be any voting this round.
Because Jupiter is so close to the sun it also affects our downlink. We will not return telemetry until about a week after the perijove pass. We don't expect to post PJ9 images until November 13.

    Dear NASA; Juno Mission;

    excuse me for the not so correct English, but I also have a speech defects in my own native language, for some reason. I would like to ask is it good idea when we have a long-term extraterrestrial scientific space mission to a cosmic body, different than the Earth, for example like space missions to Moon; Mars; Jupiter; Saturn; asteroids and comets; and beyond, we should have installed on the board of the Space Craft a routine necessary Scientific Tools like:

    1. An Inner Camera view from the interior of the space craft. I think it would be very interesting to have an inner observation. Will there be a space crystallization; space patina;

    space oxidation; space micro-particles; space dust inside the spaceship when the mission is lasting for 5-10-30 and more years.

    2. An Inner Camera Micro Observation Window and a Calibration Target Tool next to it when the mission is lasting for 5-10-30 and more years. The tool could be similar to the MSL MAHLI, JUNO Mission LEGO Minifigures experiments; or the ISS HDD Viewing experiment. In this way it will be cool; realistic and really interesting to share; watch and participate in those future epic space journeys.
