Very exciting indeed!!

A funny fact about Jupiter: all its moons were named after Jupiter's lovers. Now we have Juno (the spacecraft) whi h is now checking on Jupiter and its moons...... do you know who the mythologically Juno was? the madly jealous wife of the god Jupiter! And even as a satellite she's still checking on him!

May I offer you a trip to the moon instead? Much nearer to home, and at a discount, plus they supposed to have been there before.
