-saturns-atmosphere-2576587) few weeks ago the craft made the first of its final five flybys
ON AUGUST 27TH, Juno made the first of its 36 planned flybys
of Jupiter, zooming through perijove just 4,200 km (2,600 miles) above the cloudtops.
The raw images from that flyby
(and all future flybys
) were made available on the JunoCam website (www.
An online toolkit for all three final Enceladus flybys

Tokyo, June 12 ( ANI ): Japan's Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera has termed the flybys
by Chinese fighter aircraft as "an extremely dangerous action" against Japanese aircraft engaged in normal reconnaissance operations over international waters.
For now the anomalous energy changes observed in Earth flybys
remain a puzzle.
But it took MESSENGER's flybys
to uncover convincing evidence of lava flows.
These two flybys
will offer views of the side of the planet not yet viewed by MESSENGER.
Rosetta used Mars' gravitational field to change course and head toward two similar flybys
of Earth this year and in 2009, which will accelerate it toward its distant target comet.
will also help MESSENGER reach its final destination.
This year, the Raptor will join the B-2 Spirit and the F-117A Nighthawk in the New Year's Day flybys
Our study showed that with a minimum expenditure of energy, one could use repeated flybys
of an asteroid to slowly transfer energy from Jupiter and Saturn to the Earth, thereby gradually increasing the size of Earth's orbit over billions of years.
