Jupiter stories

 
NASA may be focusing on missions that are faster and cheaper while rolling over in favor of private industry, but the European Space Agency is kicking space science up a notch with a brand new plan for a $1.3 billion mission that'll explore the moons of Jupiter starting in 2030. It's called JUICE, for "Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer." Obviously.
 
In my opinion this is one of the coolest space videos I've seen in a long time. The video shows images of Saturn and Jupiter captured by NASA's Voyager and Cassini spacecraft in spectacular detail. We see Saturn's rings come alive and the cosmic storms swirl on both Saturn and Jupiter.
