A NASA spacecraft completed its mission to both orbit Jupiter and provide entertaining live updates on Twitter

NASA spacecraft Juno didn’t just compete a perfect orbit around Jupiter on the 4th of July: it did it in true media-savvy style: by providing charming, sassy live updates on Twitter, complete with emojis, GIFs and hashtags.

Sample tweets: “No turning back now. I’m 100,000 miles (161,000 km) from #Jupiter,” or: “Engine burn complete and orbit obtained. I’m ready to unlock all your secrets, #Jupiter. Deal with it.” Juno even got a personal congratulations from President Obama.
