It was originally proposed at a cost of approximately US$700 million (FY03) for a June 2009 launch. NASA budgetary restrictions resulted in postponement until August 2011 on board an Atlas V rocket in the 551 configuration. As of June 2011, the mission was projected to cost $1. 1 billion over its life. Juno was launched from the Kennedy Space Center on August 5, 2011. The spacecraft will be placed in a polar orbit to study the planet's composition, gravity field, magnetic field, and polar magnetosphere. Juno will also search for clues about how Jupiter formed, including whether the planet has a rocky core, the amount of water present within the deep atmosphere, and how the mass is distributed within the planet. Juno will also study Jupiter's deep winds, which can reach speeds of 600 kilometers per hour (370 mph). - Like/Dislike, Comment, Favorite and share on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ share to get the word out on this video.
