The spacecraft will probe beneath Jupiter’s obscuring cloud cover to study its auroras and learn more about its origins and structure - its atmosphere and magnetosphere. We can only hope the photographs that come back are as revealing and inspiring as those we got from Pluto. Nasa is inviting the public to participate by planning and voting on where to point its on-board colour camera called JunoCam, and which features to image on Jupiter - go to new JunoCam web platform on their site https://www.missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam/ .
