NASA has developed a new satellite to help monitor the planet Jupiter, but the US space agency wants to get its first mission underway as soon as possible.
The mission, called Juno, will fly around the gas giant in 2022, but its primary purpose is to study its atmosphere, including its core.
It will also study Jupiter’s magnetosphere, which is the layer of magnetic material that surrounds the planet.
Juno will use its high-resolution radar and spectrometer to collect data on Jupiter’s atmosphere, as well as to study the planet’s magnetospheric activity.
The spacecraft is due to launch in 2022.
NASA wants NASA to use its new satellite, dubbed JWST, as part of its 2020 plan to send an asteroid-size mission to Jupiter, as it looks to do for a larger probe called the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).
But that mission would be built using a different spacecraft, JWOSat.
This mission would include the spacecraft’s radar, camera and spectrographs and would be aimed at the planet, which would be about 2,500 times farther from the sun than the Earth.
It would orbit Jupiter in the outer solar system and be launched from Florida.
NASA has already developed several different missions to Jupiter and the agency has been developing its own satellite for years, with plans to launch one mission in 2021.
The agency has used two different spacecraft to reach the planet and they are: NASA’s JWASSat spacecraft, which launched in 2007, and NASA’s Juno spacecraft, launched in 2019.
Both of these missions are capable of monitoring the gas giants atmosphere, and both are based on the same core stage of the JWOSS spacecraft.
The JWSSat spacecraft has the most advanced radar, cameras and spectroscopes of the two, but has a much shorter mission time and a smaller orbit around Jupiter.
The Juno mission is also more expensive and takes longer to build, but NASA hopes that the mission will help it to be able to reach Jupiter in 2024.
The cost of the new mission to the gas planets atmosphere is estimated to be around $1.4 billion.
NASA’s new mission is a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing, the companies behind the Atlas V rocket used to send the first mission to Venus and the Juno spacecraft.
It is expected to launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
