Science shows us that climate change is the most urgent threat facing our planet today. International cooperation is not optional—it’s essential. Let us not back away from taking action on climate change. Join The Nature Conservancy’s petition at bit.ly/DontBackDown or see link in our profile—photo by @nickhallphoto.

Jupiter is stranger than we knew. NASA’s Juno spacecraft completed its sixth swoop past Jupiter as it moves around its highly elliptical orbit. Pictured, Jupiter is seen from below where, surprisingly, the horizontal bands that cover most of the planet disappear into swirls and complex patterns. A line of white oval clouds is visible nearer to the equator. Recent results from Juno show that Jupiter’s weather phenomena can extend deep below its cloud tops, and that Jupiter’s magnetic field varies greatly with location. Juno is scheduled to orbit Jupiter 37 times with each orbit taking about six weeks.
