It’s the second spacecraft to orbit Jupiter after the Galileo which orbited from 1995-2003.
Jennifer Delavan (Mission Control Commentator) of Lockheed Martin said “Juno, welcome to Jupiter” excitedly. Other ground controllers at NASA were also excited and cheered Juno with applause on entering the planet’s orbit.
Success! Engine burn complete. #Juno is now orbiting #Jupiter, poised to unlock the planet’s secrets. https://t.co/YFsOJ9YYb5
