Our new Jupiter, as observed from Juno

Our new Jupiter, as observed from Juno

Nasa'S Jupiter Mission Juno, arrived at Jupiter 4 July 2016 after a 5year and 1.9 billion km long journey. The researchers behind Juno have designed Juno to provide answers to some of the most burning questions the science had for gas giants like Jupiter, as well as their influence on the solar system's formation it's these questions the data from Juno these years are sending back to Earth. Despite Jupiter being the largest planet of the solar system, we had a very limited knowledge of the planet before Juno because the radiation belts that Jupiter surrounds itself with are totally destructive to normal spacecraft. Professor John Leif Jørgensen DTU-Space, one of the scientists behind Juno, talks about the technology behind Juno, the scientific results so far, and our new model of the planet's formation and structure.

After the lecture, the General Assembly is held (for members only)

The Lecture is held: Auditorium 1, H.C. Ørsted Building, University Park 5, 2100 Copenhagen Island.

Please note that you must not park in front of the main entrance to the University Park 5. You can park between the H.C. Ørsted building and the August Krogh building, on the slightly makeshift parking lot right next to the new building, but it requires a special P-permit. P permission can be obtained from SNUs representative at the main entrance to the University Park 5 between noon. 18:45-19:15 and must be filled with the car number and date and placed in the windscreen. The Easypark can be parked along the Nørre Allé.
There is good public transport to the University Park, buses 184, 185 and 150S all have stops at the University Park, and bus 6A has a stop nearby.
