Wait, that's not it...


After traveling 1.8 billion miles over five years, NASA's Juno spacecraft has reached Jupiter. Juno is the first spacecraft in more than a decade to orbit the planet.
Three 1.5-inch Lego figurines are also on board Juno. One is a likeness of Galileo Galilei -- the scientist who discovered Jupiter's four largest moons. The other two represent the Roman god Jupiter and his wife Juno. They were included to inspire children to study science and math.
The Juno mission ends on February 20, 2018, when Juno is expected to crash into Jupiter.

Cracked me up when I saw this headline earlier. One planet is not enough for the beloved to conquer.

May she guide us into the Grey. And the black. Of space.

Ahhhhhh, so that's where Abstergo's satellite launch ended up.

Maybe Desmond and Samuel Frey are on it too.
