Juno Blasts Off for Jupiter [VIDEO]

With the trajectory looking good and the solar panels deployed, the hardest part is over for the Juno space probe. It is now on its way to the planet Jupiter.The NASA probe took off on Friday morning for a five year trip to Jupiter, the solar system’s largest planet, in search of answers to questions about how planets form, helping us learn about and explore other planets and solar systems in the future. The probe will measure the huge planet’s composition and radiation fields.

What’s more, the data from this mission could help scientists make advances in fields like physics, engineering and communications, just to name a few.

Here are some links to information about the Juno mission, the Lego toys that are riding shotgun, and a guided tour.
