New Images of Planet Jupiter: SCHOTT Specialty Glass Protects Camera Eye of NASA’s Juno Probe from Cosmic Radiation
A few days ago, NASA’s Juno probe has flown closer to planet Jupiter than any spacecraft ever has before. Astronomers are hoping to receive some spectacular new shots of the planet and especially of its polar regions to gain new insights. Radiation resistant specialty glass ensures during the Juno mission that the camera lens is able to withstand the strong radiation at the polar regions for as long as possible and deliver brilliant images. Radiation resistant specialty glass is put to use in the fixed focal length lens of JunoCam, one of the most important instruments on the probe.
