Be an Armchair Astronaut and See the Universe
By eCoach Staff    December 21, 2011 -- 03:10 PM

Solar SystemEyes on the Solar System is a 3-D interactive environment full of real NASA mission data. Explore the cosmos from your computer. See the entire solar system moving in real time. Use this visualization tool control space and time. As an armchair astronaut it’s up to you.

 

Use the tutorials to learn how to navigate EYES on the Solar System.

 

Hop on the the NASA Spacecraft Juno. Juno’s principal goal in this NASA mission is to understand the origin and evolution of Jupiter. Underneath its dense cloud cover, Jupiter safeguards secrets to the fundamental processes and conditions that governed our solar system during its formation. As our primary example of a giant planet, Jupiter can also provide critical knowledge for understanding the planetary systems being discovered around other stars. Specifically, Juno will…

  • Determine how much water is in Jupiter’s atmosphere, which helps determine which planet formation theory is correct (or if new theories are needed)
  • Look deep into Jupiter’s atmosphere to measure composition, temperature, cloud motions and other properties
  • Map Jupiter’s magnetic and gravity fields, revealing the planet’s deep structure
  • Explore and study Jupiter’s magnetosphere near the planet’s poles, especially the auroras – Jupiter’s northern and southern lights – providing new insights about how the planet’s enormous magnetic force field affects its atmosphere.
