How long will it take for the information from Juno to reach Earth?
Last Updated 5 years ago

A minimum of 48 minutes since that is how long it takes for the data sent from Juno to travel to Earth into our large ground based antennas and receivers.

When we slow communications down significantly like we did last night, the amount of data accumulated on the spacecraft builds up and it can then takes hours for all of the data to be transmitted to the team on Earth. We are re-establishing “high rate” communications via our large “high gain” antenna today and expect to have all of our data from orbit insertion downlinked and reviewed by tomorrow.
