Nasa has successfully put a spacecraft into orbit around Jupiter.
The Juno spacecraft will find out more about the planet and will give us a better understanding of our universe.
As Juno was arriving after its 1.8 billion mile and 5 year journey, the cameras onboard recorded an amazing time-lapse video on approach.
All rays on me. My solar panels now face the sun. I’m the farthest solar-powered spacecraft from Earth. #Jupiter

Scientists hope Juno will answer the following questions.
How much water exists? Is there a solid core? Why are Jupiter’s southern and northern lights the brightest in the solar system?
