Jupiter Orbit Insertion
Mission Flight Plan
Bill Folkner explains how understanding Jupiter’s inner structure depends on very precisely mapping the planet's gravitational field.
Jovian Auroral Distributions Experiment (JADE)
David McComas describes JADE - the set of sensors charged with detecting the electrons and ions that produce Jupiter’s auroras.
Jupiter Energetic Particle Detector Instrument (JEDI)
Barry Mauk explains that measuring high-energy particles with JEDI will help us understand how the energy of Jupiter's rotation is being funneled into its magnetosphere and atmosphere.
Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM)
Alberto Adriani describes how JIRAM will provide a visual and thermal (infrared) view of Jupiter’s aurora.
Candy Hansen talks about JunoCam, which will provide close-up photos of Jupiter's poles for the first time, as well as other Points of Interest selected by the public.
[interview produced in 2011]
Jack Connerney describes how Juno's magnetometer will visualize Jupiter's magnetic field in 3D, all around the planet, watching for changes over time.
Microwave Radiometer (MWR)
Mike Janssen discusses Juno's microwave radiometer, which will measure radio waves from Jupiter's deep atmosphere that tell us how much water is there and how material is moving far below the cloud tops.
Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrometer (UVS)
Randy Gladstone explains how seeing Jupiter’s auroras in UV helps us understand Jupiter’s upper atmosphere and the particles that cause the auroras.
Bill Kurth explains how the Waves instrument will measure radio and plasma waves in Jupiter’s magnetosphere, helping us understand the interactions between the magnetic field, the atmosphere and the magnetosphere. Waves will also pay particular attention to activity associated with auroras.
