A great technological achievement, but the really important thing is that all the NASA scientists are wearing the right kind of shirt.

Unbelievable technical achievement here. They did a gravity slingshot around earth in order to build enough speed to switch orbits, and managed to reach their destination within 1 second of the calculated time, over a 5 year trip. Now that's government efficiency (heh).

Fun little fact: All of Jupiters moons are named after Jupiters (the gods) mistresses and lovers. Juno, who Nasa have just sent to check up on Jupiter, is named after Jupiters wife :lamo
