Google Celebrated The Jupiter Mission In The Most Epic Way Ever
You won't be able to ignore NASA's incredible news today. Google's celebrating it with an awesome doodle.
The cosmos mavericks have successfully put the Juno spacecraft into Jupiter's orbit after a five-year journey to the planet.
AND it happened on Independence Day. (USA! USA! USA!)
So, Google thought it'd mark the historic feat by coming up with a little animation of NASA staff cheering as Juno beams back celebratory emojis. It's made to look like an old-school arcade game, and it couldn't be more pleasing to our eyes.
Over the upcoming months, Juno will collect data from Jupiter's atmosphere. It is hoped the information gathered will give us a better understanding of our solar system.
NASA administrator Charlie Bolden said,
WOOP. Another massive step for mankind.
