Launched on 5 August 2011, the solar power-driven Juno spacecraft arrived at the largest planet in our solar system on 4 July 2016.
On 26 December 2019, when it was just 62,000 miles away from the planet, JIRAM clicked 300 infrared images during its closest approach.
The first space rock that the scientists discovered was the asteroid 514107 Ka'epaoka'awela which means 'mischievous opposite-moving companion of Jupiter.'
The planets would look to a human eye like extraordinarily bright stars, unlike the familiar photos we've seen captured by a spacecraft.
Europa has an ocean hidden beneath a thick shell of ice and has long has been viewed as a potential habitat for life, alongside Mars and Saturn’s moon Enceladus.
Ancient micrometeoroids carried stardust, water to asteroid 4 Vesta; could have done same for Earth, say scientists
The stardust in asteroid Vesta holds a unique record of ancient galactic material that was delivered to a celestial body far from Earth.
New type of Trojan asteroid discovered near Jupiter has an orbit like an asteroid but the tail of a comet
It is believed that Trojan asteroids have large amounts of ice beneath their surfaces, but there was never any evidence untill now.
The images showed the warm, deep layers of Jupiter’s atmosphere glowing through gaps in thick cloud cover.
Auroras at Saturn's poles could be the heat source that keeps the upper layers of the planet hot, NASA's Cassini finds
Auroras are electric currents, triggered by interactions between solar winds and charged particles from Saturn's moons.
You can't miss Venus as it burns almost 20 times brighter than Sirius, the night sky's brightest star
The atmosphere at Jupiter's equator is made up of about 25 percent of water molecules finds the first science result from the Juno mission.
Analysis of the data from the space probe shows there are similarities between Earth's, Saturn's and Jupiters auroras.
A total of 13 asteroids will be travelling past Earth in the next coming weeks till 31 December.
Some astronomers believe, to paraphrase Mark Twain, that the reports of its death are greatly exaggerated, or at least premature.
NASA's image of the day is a reflection of stars, planets and galaxies in the world's largest natural mirror
The salt pan goes on for 10,582 square kilometres and was first part of a large prehistoric lake.
Under Europa's icy surface is a salty ocean that contains twice as much water than that on earth.
The mission was launched in 1977 and they have gone further than the Sun and our solar system.
This discovery means that the solar system’s biggest planet, Jupiter is no longer is the planet with the most moons.
Star system 30-light-years from Earth stumps astronomers, defies past theories about planet formation
Scientists think a second planet also orbits the star, and a third, that was ejected from the system billions of years ago.
Before you start sputtering about HAL 9000, monoliths and Europa, that's Io's shadow we're looking at.
