On July 4th 2016, the Juno spacecraft entered orbit around the planet Jupiter after leaving earth five years ago. The Juno probe will tell us what lies inside the mysterious gas giant and with this information we’ll better understand the formation of our solar system. In this episode, find out how Jupiter wreaked havoc through the solar system during its early formation and how without it the Earth as we know it would not exist.
