    Now the science begins.

    The real stuff won't happen till August but it is there and safely in orbit.

    You can download a great astronomy app at

    Nasa.eyes.gov

    It takes 53 days per orbit and they want to look closely at the poles so that is why it won't happen til the end of August, beginning of September.
