The International Space Station (ISS) is in the midst of a “deep freeze” for the third time in four years, but NASA is looking to the next generation of robotic space exploration.
The space agency’s new mission, called Juno, will fly by Jupiter’s moon Io in 2021, taking a close look at the surface of the planet.
Juno will fly at a distance of about 8,000 kilometers (4,000 miles), making it the third spacecraft in NASA’s history to fly by the giant moon.
The next spacecraft to orbit the moon is NASA’s Curiosity rover.
NASA’s robotic missions to the moon have had success, including landing the first rover on the moon in 2005, and landing the Curiosity rover on Mars in 2011.
NASA is also building a robotic space station to explore the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.
The agency is also working on the development of a probe to fly past Jupiter’s cloud tops, a space exploration technology that will ultimately allow humans to land on the planet and explore it.
According to a statement released by NASA, Juno’s mission will include: a deep-space probe to probe the surface and atmosphere of the icy moon Io, with a suite of robotic instruments; a spacecraft to explore how Io’s clouds are composed; and a probe that will study the geology and chemistry of the surface.
The mission will also include a crew of seven.
The mission’s design is based on a concept first proposed by NASA in the 1970s, when NASA was preparing for a manned mission to the Moon.
NASA also plans to build a mission capable of exploring Jupiter’s clouds, a capability that has never been attempted before.
In 2016, NASA announced that it would launch a robotic probe to the surface in 2021.
The probe will be built using a series of “low-earth orbit” launches, in which a spacecraft travels to a new point in space before returning to Earth.
The spacecraft will be equipped with a radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG), which is capable of producing heat.
The RTG will be powered by solar panels, a technique that is similar to the design used on the Apollo and Saturn missions.
The NASA mission will be the first in a series called the Deep Space Exploration Program (DSEP).
NASA hopes to launch its first deep-sea expedition to Europa in 2020.
The Deep Space Explorers Program, or DSEP, will focus on missions to other worlds and asteroids, including the Jupiter system.
A spacecraft like the one that NASA will launch on Juno, with its robotic instruments, will allow the agency to study how Io and other icy worlds formed and evolved.
NASA hopes the robotic missions will enable the exploration of the moons and moons of other planets.
