Google Doodle marking spacecraft Juno's entry into Jupiter's orbit.

Five years after it first left its home planet, earth, NASA spacecraft Juno finally entered Jupiter’s orbit. Soon after, Google used its ever-changing logo to salute and celebrate the historic achievement.

The animated Google Doodle features the probe starting to beam down images to an ecstatic 8-bit group of scientists, replicating the scenes that played out earlier in the day.

“In satellite terms, Juno is a warrior,” Google said in a statement. “Today’s Doodle celebrates this incredible moment of human achievement.”
