Abstract : The code name JUNO was given to a series of scientific Earth- satellite and space-probe firings conducted cooperatively by the Army Ballistic Missile Agency and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as part of the United States' participation in the International Geophysical Year program. The one common denominator of the entire JUNO program was the spinning cluster of JPL high-speed stages that were mounted on top of both the Redstone and Jupiter vehicles. The high-speed stages were originally proposed in the Project Orbiter studies of 1954-55, and were developed initially for the RTV program of 1955-57. (Author)
