Juno Rocket off to Jupiter
Do you see that squiggly cloud behind the cumulus clouds? That is the trail left behind the Atlas rocket that propelled the new robotic Juno shortly after noon from the Kennedy Space Center headed for Jupiter to discover what is really out there. Well, we won't find out right away, since it will take Juno five years before it reaches that huge planet. So cross your fingers that you will be around to find out what it discovers.
