Submission + - Mission to Jupitor (

Tomahawk writes: NASA is preparing to launch a new probe to Jupiter. The probe will orbit the poles, and will examine Jupiter's red spot, and will also try to determine what might be at the core of the giant planet — is it gas all the way down? (Or might it be a giant diamond?)

It's a 5 year (mission?) flight to Jupiter, arriving into orbit in July 2016.
