Jupiter in infrared light, as observed by the international Gemini Observatory on May 29, 2019.

Astronomers just stitched together an unprecedented portrait of Jupiter in infrared — and realized its Great Red Spot is full of holes

Astronomers created a "weather satellite" by linking a Jupiter-orbiting spacecraft, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, and an observatory on Earth.

Jupiter got hit by a planet with 10 times the mass of Earth billions of years ago, and its core is still reeling, a new study suggests

A head-on collision explains why Jupiter's core is so much more diffuse than scientists expected. Jupiter likely absorbed the smaller planet.

Lyft and Juno are fighting New York’s controversial new minimum wage rule in court

The companies say the rule, which was set to go into effect Friday, puts Uber at an unfair advantage.
The wage floor will go into effect in the middle of January.

New York City just became the first US city to set a minimum wage for Uber and Lyft drivers

Drivers for Uber, Lyft, and other ride-hailing services will receive a wage per trip that corresponds to $27.86 per hour, or $17.22 after expenses.

NASA’s $1 billion Juno spacecraft is probing Jupiter’s deepest secrets — here are Juno’s biggest discoveries so far

NASA's Juno probe reached Jupiter in July 2016, and scientists' view of the solar system has not been the same since. The $1 billion mission has taken stunning images of the gas giant and probed its deepest secrets with a suite of instruments.

NASA’s $1 billion mission to Jupiter has taken years of stunning images — here are some of Juno’s best shots

NASA's Juno spacecraft has pulled off its 14th daredevil orbit of Jupiter and is preparing to embark on the next phase of its journey. NASA recently extended the mission through July 2021, temporarily sparing it from doom. Here are some of its best photos and animations of Jupiter.

NASA’s $1 billion Jupiter probe just beamed back mesmerizing new photos of the gas giant

Juno's high-speed flybys around Jupiter, called perijoves, happen once every 53.5 days and have allowed NASA to document the gas giant like never before. The most recent trip (Juno's 14th perijove) occurred on July 16. Here's what the probe saw.

NASA’s Juno probe has solved a 39 year-old mystery about Jupiter’s lightning

NASA's Juno probe has unraveled the mystery of Jupiter's lightning, a problem that has vexed astronomers for close to four decades. A new paper has found that Jupiter's lightning is similar to Earth's.
