Original Caption Released with Image:

Technicians transfer NASA's Juno spacecraft from its rotation fixture to the base of its shipping container in preparation for a move to environmental testing facilities.

Juno's main engine, its cover closed, is visible on the spacecraft's underside.

This image was taken on Sept. 27, 2010, in the high-bay cleanroom at Lockheed Martin Space Systems in Denver, during Juno's assembly process.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages the Juno mission for the principal investigator, Scott Bolton, of Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio. Lockheed Martin Space Systems is building the spacecraft. The Italian Space Agency, Rome, is contributing an infrared spectrometer instrument and a portion of the radio science experiment.
