Summary

In science news around the world, NASA's Juno spacecraft successfully enters into orbit around Jupiter, the National Science Foundation's troubled National Ecological Observatory Network gets an additional $35 million, the Wellcome Trust prepares to launch an open-access journal that will publish only research funded by a Wellcome grant, more than 100 Nobel laureates sign a strongly worded letter chastising Greenpeace for its anti-GMO stance, and more. Also, Mexico faces particular challenges in adhering to the agreement it made with the United States and Canada to each generate 50% of their electricity from clean energy sources by 2025. And NASA announces the future of two spacecraft: Dawn will remain in orbit around Ceres, and New Horizons, which visited Pluto in 2015, will venture further to a rendezvous with an icy Kuiper belt object in 2019.
