In Better News

Pasadena, California

Juno’s brakes worked and it is now in orbit around Jupiter.  Which means we’re a handful of years away from a lot of new quality planetary science.  However, it doesn’t seem like the Jovian moons are an objective of the mission, meaning all that supposed life under Europa’s thick ice in its supposed liquid water ocean will have to wait awhile to be discovered.

Juno is the second of the New Horizons class of good but relatively inexpensive interplanetary research spacecraft, the first being the series’ eponymous mission which made it to Pluto a year ago.

But before you think all is good news, then hide the pic in this article of the jubilant Juno team from the SJWs.  Because no diversity.

Thanks – following Juno elsewhere – it is better news for those interested in “other stuff too”.
Love the last comment – oh so true!

Hey, wasn’t the very first public proclamation by the diverse Obama-appointed NASA chairman that his goal was to concentrate the efforts of his agency in the direction of ‘Muslim Outreach’?
