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.
