    This makes our coffee making technology seem pretty winky dink stuff.

    "a 1.7-billion-mile journey, we hit our burn within one second on a target that was just tens of kilometres large" this truly is amazing, incredible and any other superlative you may care to add"

    Super science! Withstanding 20 million rads of radiation through orbital insertion and flyby and still gather data and send it back is impressive too!

    I like NASA's sense of humour. Jupiter is the head of the gods, the moon's are named after his mistresses and NASA sent up Juno, his wife

    Amazing stuff, all those little things we needed to get to work and coordinate in the right sequences, the knowledge to get this project to up and running to succeed.
    And to think we still can't get our dietry guidlines changed and treat diabetes, obesity the way science knows how it should.
    Thats the difference between some projects with less commercial interest at stake
