Built by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, the Juno spacecraft was launched in August 2011 and reached Jupiter’s orbit in July last year, after traveling at more than 130,000 miles per hour.

The mission aimed to aid researchers in learning more about Jupiter’s origins, atmosphere and other mysteries, according to The Business Insider.  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
