Managed at JPL and launched in August of 2011, the Juno spacecraft entered Jupiter's orbit on July 4, 2016. Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our solar system and was almost certainly the first planet to form. Juno's 20-month study of Jupiter, approaching as close as 5,000 km above the cloud tops, will improve our understanding of giant planet formation and evolution by studying Jupiter's origin, interior structure, atmospheric composition and dynamics, and magnetosphere. Juno incorporates significant radiation shielding in the spacecraft/instrument design to survive and operate reliably in Jupiter's intense radiation environment and is also the first solar powered mission to operate at Jupiter.

Technolink member Steffan Tubbs is on a mission to raise awareness of the cross-generational battle with PTSD and and help save lives with the documentary film, ACRONYMIn the words of Duane France, combat veteran and mental health counselor, "War being hell, hell is not selective to a particular conflict or generation; the movie provides an in-depth look at the impact of combat trauma on veterans from World War II to today. It shows the impact that combat has on families, on wives and children. It provides a brutal, unvarnished, and critical look at how combat impacts those who experience it, as well as those who care for them."
