With Jupiter now starting to be on show at a more reasonable hour here in the UK I think it is an apt time to post this NASA video of the Juno spaceship flyby of Ganymede and Jupiter last month. Music by Vangelis. Breathtaking imagery :icon_biggrin:

As one of the comments on the movie says, what would Galileo have made of this !

That is incredible! 

But yes, wouldn't it be interesting to sit down with Galileo today, and show him what there is to see!

I have the feeling, the words he would mutter just might make the Pope angry with him, again.
