Launched in August 2011, the Juno spacecraft will reach Jupiter in July 2016. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, and likely the first to form. Its formation is key to understanding how our solar system began. It has the strongest magnetic field of any known planet, and its magnetosphere is arguably the largest structure in our solar system. Despite Jupiter's importance, and the fact that it was one of the very first astronomical objects to be studied with a telescope, major aspects of the giant planet remain a mystery. We don't yet understand its interior structure, including the size or even existence of a central core. Juno will investigate these and other scientific questions, improving our understanding of the history of our solar system and our own origin story.
