The Hardest Thing NASA has Ever Done

For the past five years, the NASA’s Juno spacecraft has been on a journey that would be defined by its final 35 minutes. After covering 1.7 billion miles, it was the 35 minute engine burn that marked completion of a complex maneuver to enter Jupiter’s orbit. The exciting achievement signals the beginning of a 20 month scientific mission of discovery and signals an amazing feat, even by NASA’s standards. As Scott Bolton, Juno’s principal investigator put it, “We just did the hardest thing NASA has ever done.”

Jama is proud to have NASA as a customer and congratulates the Juno team and entire organization on this momentous achievement. Watch highlights of the encounter here:
