Washington, D.C. – At about 12:15pm PDT today (3:15pm EDT), mission controllers will transmit command product “ji4040” into deep space, to transition the solar-powered Juno spacecraft into autopilot.
It will take nearly 48 minutes for the signal to cover the 534-million-mile (860-million-kilometer) distance between the Deep Space Network Antenna in Goldstone, California, to the Juno spacecraft.

Tampa, FL – Britain’s vote to leave the European Union could impact Americans in a variety of ways; one of them could be lower gas prices. The price for crude oil, which is globally traded on the stock market, declined by nearly $2.50 the day after the “Brexit” vote.
