So, does anyone know what Jupiter's moons are named for?
The practice was to name newly discovered moons of Jupiter after lovers and favorites of the god Jupiter (Zeus) and, since 2004, also after their descendants.[32] All of Jupiter's satellites from XXXIV (Euporie) are named after daughters of Jupiter or Zeus.[32]

Does anyone remember the name of the probe sent to Jupiter to check out the satellites and Jupiter itself?
Juno. Jupiter's Wife's name. They sent his wife, to check on him with his mistresses....

Spectacular spiral galaxy NGC 1032

A handful of other galaxies can be seen lurking in the background, scattered around the narrow stripe of NGC 1032. Many are oriented face-on or at tilted angles, showing off their glamorous spiral arms and bright star-studded cores.

RXC J2211.7-0350 (Massive galaxy cluster)




First clear image of a planet caught in the very act of formation around the dwarf star PDS 70. The planet stands clearly out, visible as a bright point to the right of the centre of the image, which is blacked out by the coronagraph mask used to block the blinding light of the central star.

Like a July 4 fireworks display, a young, glittering collection of stars looks like an aerial burst. The cluster is surrounded by clouds of interstellar gas and dust – the raw material for new star formation. The nebula, located 20kly away in the constellation Carina, contains a central cluster of huge, hot stars, called NGC 3603.



At 5:42 a.m. EDT Friday, June 29, 2018, SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft lifts off on a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Dragon is carrying more than 5,900 pounds of research, equipment, cargo and supplies that will support dozens of scientific investigations aboard the International Space Station.



This image of Jupiter's southern hemisphere was captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft on the outbound leg of a close flyby of the gas-giant planet.



This image of the Moon was taken by ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst from the International Space Station during his Horizons mission.
