NASA just got the first photos of Jupiter's north pole ever, but that's just the beginning of what the spacecraft missions are going to catch.
The Juno spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral in August 2011 and arrived at Jupiter last month. And NASA scientists say what Juno caught on camera is unlike anything they've ever seen.
NASA's goal with Juno is to track the evolution of Jupiter. Researchers want to see how the planet was formed and how it's changed over the years.
