Juno has been exploring the Jupiter system since 2016, and has taught us a lot about the clouds, the magnetosphere, and the origin of the largest planet in our solar system. Now in its extended mission, it’s exploring the Jovian moons in a series of flybys, including a recent pass by Europa. The mission’s PI Scott Bolton joins Jake to talk about this flyby, the science results we’ve gotten, and what’s ahead for this intrepid explorer.
