Jupiter Captured From NASA’s Juno Spacecraft – Video

Jupiter

This is the most awesome footage of Jupiter I have ever seen, It is captured by NASA’s Juno Spacecraft which is taking still images and later on meticulously combined to create the spectacular two-minute video embedded below.

Mathematician Gerald Eichstaedt took still shots taken by NASA’s Juno spacecraft and spent 60 hours editing them together. Animator Seán Doran then spent another 12 hours smoothing each frame, all 2,400 of them, resulting in this awe-inspiring tribute to the gas giant. Check out the video below and appreciate their work by sharing this post.

Juno’s mission is to measure Jupiter’s composition, gravity field, magnetic field, and polar magnetosphere. It will also search for clues about how the planet formed, including whether it has a rocky core, the amount of water present within the deep atmosphere, mass distribution, and its deep winds, which can reach speeds of 618 kilometers per hour (384 mph)
