All are welcome to attend the May meeting of the CCAS in-person, on Zoom or YouTube. Details are below:

Our May CCAS meeting – the final CCAS meeting for Spring prior to our hiatus during the summer months- will take place in person and via Zoom on Tuesday, May 9 commencing at 7:30 pm EST. Our guest speaker is Dr. Candice Hansen-Koharcheck, a renowned astrophysicist with a long and distinguished history at NASA and JPL (and elsewhere) who has been involved on numerous past and current missions of space exploration, most currently the Juno Mission and the JunoCam in particular. The CCAS meeting presentation will commence at approximately 7:45 pm EST. Our meetings are held at West Chester University’s (WCU) Merion Science Center, Room 112. The Science Center is located at 720 S. Church St. in West Chester, PA.

Title: JunoCam Images of Jupiter:  A New Perspective

Speaker: Dr. Hansen is collaborator on NASA’s Juno Mission and is responsible for the development and operation of the JunoCam, for which she received the NASA's Outstanding Public Leadership Medal in 2018

Synopsis: JunoCam is the first interplanetary outreach camera used for both science and outreach and it produced the first close-up images of Jupiter's polar regions. JunoCam was also used to capture images of volcanic plumes on the Jovian moon, Io.  Juno’s unique polar orbit yields polar perspectives unavailable to earth-based observers or previous spacecraft.  In a highly elliptical orbit Juno’s closest approach comes within 3500 km of Jupiter’s cloud tops.  Evolution of the orbit has allowed the spacecraft to pass close to Ganymede and Europa as well, with close passes of Io in the near future.  Members of the public have been invited to process JunoCam images.   Dr. Hansen will discuss the Juno Mission and share with us some of the amazing images and revelations made possible by JunoCam. She will also discuss briefly the ESA Juice Mission and NASA’s Europa Clipper Mission to the Jovian system.
