I thought that if i told you, it would make it easier to let go or it would hurt less. but i was so wrong.
Launched on August 5th 2011, NASA’s New Frontiers mission to the planet Jupiter has made it half way through its course.
Junos’s mission is to measure the thermal radiation emanating from deep within Jupiter’s atmosphere using infrared and microwave instruments. The observations will supplement previous studies of its composition by assessing the abundance and distribution of water, and therefore oxygen. By filling missing pieces of the puzzle of Jupiter’s composition, this data will also provide insight into Jupiter’s origins.
Overview from NASA -
"As of June 30, 2014, Juno is approximately 370 million miles (596 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 33 minutes. Juno is traveling at a velocity of approximately 11 miles (17 kilometers) per second relative to the sun, and 29 miles (46 kilometers) per second relative to Earth. Juno has now traveled 1.36 billion miles (2.2 billion kilometers, or 14.6 AU) since launch."
Juno is expected to arrive by 2016.

All this time i was exactly wating for what i was expecting. Which was nothing. Since nothing happened it gave me the real answer. Now i will no longer waste time. Im tired of being stuck of that situation and creating this false illusion. I just need to get away, i need to leave soon. It is what it is. What’s done is done.
