Yay for Juno! First major course correction complete

Topics: mission status, Juno

JPL issued a news note today with that most dreaded of press release titles: "Mission Status Report," which I dread because it's usually a euphemism for "something bad has happened to one of our spacecraft." But this time it contains nothing but good news. It briefly notes that the Jupiter-bound Juno spacecraft has successfully completed the first of twelve trajectory correction maneuvers it'll perform between launch last year and Jupiter arrival in 2016. Its next maneuver will take place in August of this year. Go Juno!
