This Planetary Radio episode on the Juno probe’s mission to Jupiter was first broadcast June 28. Later tonight, July 4, Juno is expected to fly past all of the Galilean moons and reach orbit. You can read more about that here.
Here’s the show description from the website:
“Mat Kaplan talks with the mission’s Principal Investigator, Scott Bolton, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Bill Nye helps prepare us for this exciting encounter and the science that will follow. Emily Lakdawalla has the scoop on China’s next lunar mission — a rover on the Moon’s mysterious far side. And a Chinese mission from the past is at the core of this week’s space trivia contest on What’s Up.”
