I thought that it was time to start a new thread devoted to the JUNO Jupiter
Orbiter mission. This New Frontiers Mission #2 seems to be a "stealth" project
with little information available on the Web. In fact, the official NASA JUNO
web site is quite pitiful. It contains the minimal amount of information on what
seems to be an intriguing mission, in terms of both science and engineering.

Does the UMSF community have information on this mission that has not
been widely seen before?

I was going to say something about this being "An excellent choice" since NASA and Lockheed Martin have had such brilliant success with the Atlas V in the past. New Horizons and MRO launches were nearly flawless. But apparently Atlas V had its first hick-up last June with an NRO Reconnaissance Satellite. Too much of the important information is classified, however, and the launch has been deemed a "partial success". Nonetheless, I'm still willing to give [knock on wood] the Atlas V team the benefit of the doubt.

What would you rather use as a launcher?

For the injection energy to get Juno into its initial transfer trajectory to Jupiter requires a large booster. The other choices in 2011 will still be Delta-IVH (more expensive), Proton (not a US launcher for a US spacecraft and a rather more serious failure last month), and Ariane 5 (not a US launcher). None have expected mission success rates significantly higher than Atlas V. Unfortunately, with the market realities of low launch rates and high launch costs today and in the near future, the choices are rather limited. Falcon 9 looks promising as a lower cost choice, but it needs several successful flights to establish its reliability.

And that is an old article you cite that came out just after the launch with the usual tough sounding public sound bites expected at those times. Here is a more recent one with more balanced reporting:
