    Default NASA's Juno mission

    Learnt something interesting: the planet Jupiter is named after the Roman god who is the king of gods (equivalent of Zeus in Greek mythology.) Now according to the myths Jupiter had lots of lovers and affairs. The planet Jupiter has 67 moons - and the moons are all named after the god Jupiter's many lovers and affairs. Interestingly enough, NONE of the moons are named after his wife - Juno - which is exactly the name of the satellite NASA is sending to Jupiter. So the "wife" is going to check on the "husband" and his "lovers".

    We had Unix clusters for a customer that were named Juno/Jupiter and Hera/Zeus. No problems at all
    Initially the customer was a bit taken aback, until we explained that the names only apply to the hardware and would not be seen at application level.
