As of May 6, 2016, Juno is approximately 450 million miles (724 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 40 minutes.

Juno is traveling at a velocity of approximately 60,000 miles per hour (about 26.9 kilometers per second) relative to Earth, 15,000 miles per hour (about 6.7 kilometers per second) relative to the Sun, and 13,000 miles per hour (about 6 kilometers per second) relative to Jupiter. Juno has now travelled 1.74 billion miles (2.8 billion kilometers, or 18.73 AU) since launch, and has another 19 million miles to go (31 million kilometers, or 0.20 AU) before entering orbit around Jupiter.
Juno will arrive at Jupiter on July 4, 2016, at 8:35 p.m.

It's actually very hard actually lol. This thing travels at 60,000 miles per hour which is close to 100,000km/h. What makes this mission so cool is that it will see how jupiter was formed.

It'd be so much easier, if Obama would just sign a piece of paper, that says.. Hello Elon Musk, here's Nasa, DEAL WITH IT..
