Pic of the Day: Juno takes off for Jupiter on an Atlas V

Hey, no less than the finish of the House Shuttle Period doesn’t imply the finish of spectacular blast-offs.

That’s an Atlas V rocket, lifting off from Cape Canaveral, Fla., this morning and carrying the unmanned spacecraft Juno — launching a five-year mission to Jupiter.

Count on to listen to much more about the Atlas V in the months and years forward. The Atlas V program is operated by United Space Alliance, the Boeing-Lockheed three way partnership, and Boeing has simply chosen the rocket for a future taxi service to the International Space Station, planning to make use of it to launch a industrial crew capsule known as the CST-100.
