Science – here is why I love it so

NASA… I love them. For exploring, and for sharing what they discover on their journeys.

Even more importantly i love the fact that since it is in the public domain citizen filmmakers and scientists can make use of those images in unique and in this case wondrous ways.

Juno takes a handful of still photographs each time it passes Jupiter, each of which are made available to the public thanks to the NASA image, video and audio site. Sean Doran stitched together the images from Juno’s last transit (the images were coloured by Gerald Eichstädt) to create an approximation of what it looks like to fly around the giant planet.
