Overview: This mission will conduct an in-depth study of the giant gas planet Jupiter. The spacecraft will enter polar orbit around the planet to investigate the existence of an ice-rock core; determine the amount of global water and ammonia present in the atmosphere; study convection and deep wind profiles in the atmosphere; investigate the origin of the jovian magnetic field; and explore the polar magnetosphere. The spacecraft will also carry a color camera to provide the public with unprecedented close-up images of Jupiter, including the first detailed glimpse of the planet's poles.
