When Will I Ever Use This...

Well, in the event you become a space scientist/engineer you might just use math to embark a man-made spacecraft on a journey to a world far, far away....

No explicit mathematics today, but just thought these videos from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory ought be shared, if you missed them.  First, is the jubilation of workers upon spacecraft Juno attaining orbit around Jupiter after its momentous 5-year voyage. Followed by a little more background info on the project in the second video. Amazing!:

How petty and irrelevant our localized politics and day-to-day affairs seem when shown what some humans are actually capable of accomplishing!
