Voyager Lecture Series: Exploring and Imaging Jupiter
With Dr. Candice Hansen-Koharcheck
The intersection of science and art
The Juno spacecraft entered into a polar orbit around Jupiter in 2016 carrying JunoCam, a visible
light camera. The objective for JunoCam is to give the public a way to be involved in a
planetary exploration mission. Members of the public are invited to process JunoCam images.
This partnership has resulted in a unique blend of science and art. Enhanced color image
processing by volunteer citizen scientists brings out subtle detail in the clouds and storms.
Contributions by artists yield products suitable for framing and help us all to appreciate the
beauty of the largest planet in our solar system.
Dr. Candice Hansen-Koharcheck is a senior scientist at the Planetary Science Institute, and she
works on NASA robotic spacecraft missions at Mars and Jupiter. She is a Co-Investigator on the
Juno mission and leads the JunoCam team.
