Default Juno's Jupiter mission may yield clues to Earth's origins

"Starting Aug. 5, NASA will enter the launch period
for the spacecraft Juno, which will begin an
unprecedented exploration of Jupiter's secrets. 'We
are after the recipe for planet-making,' says a
scientist."

Default Juno's Jupiter mission may yield clues to Earth's origins

Juno Probe Launched From Cape Canaveral:

"NASA’s Juno probe lifted off aboard an Atlas V rocket from
Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station,
Fla., at 12:25 p.m. EDT today, kicking off a five-year trek
to Jupiter.

The rocket, flying in the 551 vehicle configuration with a
five-meter fairing, five solid-rocket boosters and a single-
engine Centaur upper stage, will propel Juno out as far as
the orbit of Mars before the spacecraft cycles back around
the Sun for a flyby of Earth in October 2013 and a
gravitational boost to Jupiter."
