NASA has just completed the final stages of testing on the three colossal solar panels that will power the Juno spacecraft on its journey to Jupiter. Set to launch in August 2011 and arrive in July 2016, Juno’s five-year cruise to Jupiter will certainly be one of epic proportions, as this is the first time in history a spacecraft has used solar power so far out in space. In order to provide enough solar energy to power Juno’s array of scientific instruments, the solar panels will remain in sunlight continuously from launch through to the end of the mission. According to NASA, Juno will improve our understanding of our solar system’s beginnings by exploring the formation and evolution of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system.
