ProjectsEdit

After seven long years, in January 2017, I finally finished my little project to create a set of articles for the Juno orbiter

  • 2010 JunoCam
  • 2012 JIRAM
  • 2013 JEDI
  • 2016 JADE
  • 2016 MAG
  • 2016 UVS
  • 2017 Waves
  • 2017 Gravity Science
  • 2017 Radiation Vault

It took a long time because it was not a primary goal, and of course they are only started (what is finished on Wikipedia?). With Juno at Jupiter now updates and new results from each instrument can be incorporated into independent articles. Time will tell if they hold up, but I am glad to finish this at least

What is Wikipedia?Edit
