Juno (New Frontiers 2) Home; Spacecraft by country; USA; Juno [NASA/JPL] NASA has announced the second mission in its New Frontiers Program: a mission – called Juno (Jupiter Near-polar Orbiter) to fly to Jupiter – that now will proceed to a preliminary design phase. The desire for a Jupiter probe was strong in the years prior to this, but there had not been any approved missions.

Die Juno I bestand aus der für Wiedereintrittstests entwickelten dreistufigen Jupiter-C-Rakete mit einer aufgesetzten vierten Stufe.

The Saturn family used liquid hydrogen as fuel in the upper stages.Originally proposed as a military satellite launcher, they were adopted as the launch vehicles for the Apollo Moon program. Juno V-A. Juno was selected on June 9, 2005, as the next New Frontiers mission after New Horizons. Juno V-A was studied in 1958, as a new name for the Super-Jupiter rocket. The Juno V series of rockets were a design that was proposed in the late 1950s but cancelled. NASA.gov brings you the latest images, videos and news from America's space agency. Diese wurde nach dem Ausbrennen der dritten Stufe gezündet und brachte die Nutzlast auf eine Geschwindigkeit von 29.000 km/h. Juno will improve our understanding of the solar system's beginnings by revealing the origin and evolution of Jupiter. The Saturn family of American rockets was developed by a team of mostly German rocket scientists led by Wernher von Braun to launch heavy payloads to Earth orbit and beyond. The rockets were multi-stage and, although they failed to reach production, their sections were used in other designs.
