    You’re not going to find a lot of romance in orbital physics. Little objects orbit big objects; big objects orbit bigger objects. The entire galaxy orbits around a central pivot point. It’s all momentum and velocity and the hard hand of gravity. And then all at once it becomes a bit of poetry. If you didn’t believe that already, the Juno spacecraft should change your mind.

    Juno, a four-ton (3,600 kg), 11-ft. (3.5 m) robot probe which entered orbit around Jupiter at 11:35 p.m. EDT on July 4, is not NASA’s biggest or most dramatic or most complex spacecraft. But it made a first impression like none other. On its final approach to Jupiter, it captured a series of still images that, run in sequence, produced the first ever video of the giant planet being orbited by its four large moons: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. All by themselves, the so-called Galilean moons (named after Galileo Galilei, who discovered them in 1610) are some of the most interesting bodies in the solar system. And Europa in particular is considered by most astronomers to be the likeliest home for life in the solar system, after Earth.

    Cool shit! I was expecting to be a bit closer though, surely Juno's orbit is closer than this?

    Just reread and it says this was taken from the crafts approach so.....

    Pretty cool.

    Serious question. When I go camping, about an hour west of Philadelphia, the sky is so bright at night you don't need a flashlight to walk around camp. We send these super machines, with crazy optics. and cameras to send back info.

    You never see any stars in the back ground. Why?

    The reason that the stars do not show up on the film is that the stars are so dim that the camera cannot gather enough of their light in a short exposure. Our eyes are a lot more sensitive to light than photographic film.

    They say there's no greater camera than the human eye and that cameras can not gather enough of a stars light during short exposure. :dontknow:

    EDIT: @Dlist beat me to it ha.
