Key times for the probe tonight:

11:18 PM (eastern daylight time): deceleration engines start

11:53 PM: deceleration engines stop

12:07 AM: spacecraft orients solar panels towards sun


The NASA TV channel is probably going to be the best source of timely information. An online source likely have timely updates is this Twitter feed:

If the probe is destroyed or heavily damaged, one likely indicator will be the dishes aimed at the probe no longer receiving any downlink signal, which would be indicated on this page:

@oralloy,
the nwxt few dys will be focused on orbit inswrtion nd the nwext 2 months will be guidance focused so we shouldnt xpect any pix or spec data. They said this AM that itll be over 50 days before the turn anything sensory on.
SO we can sit and wait and just be satified if it makes it into a stable orbit. this is a very big deal especially since the "low power" flight was planned by a pretty neat program

SUCCESS!

Spacecraft is in the desired orbit around Jupiter, has reoriented its solar panels towards the sun, and is operating normally.

@oralloy,
You actually believe this bollux?
Bet you think there's a 'rover' on Mars (Nevada) and humans stood on the Moon, too?
