NASA Launches Juno - A Mission To Jupiter
On August 5th 2011 an Atlas V rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, beginning a journey to Jupiter. Its payload, the Juno spacecraft, is on a mission to study Jupiter's structure and decipher its history.

The Atlas V took off from Space Launch Complex-41. Liftoff occurred at 12:25 p.m. EDT and it will take roughly 5 years for Juno to reach the massive gas planet.

A "cloud skimmer", named Juno, is to begin its five year journey through space to reveal what drives the violent weather on the giant planet Jupiter and what lies beneath it's stormy clouds. Temperatures on Jupiter drop to -234 degrees F, thick brooding clouds obscure its atmosphere and winds blow at up to 384 miles per hour.
