Unfortunately, the Juno update is only half the problem. Ganymede also needs to be modified to avoid a collision.

But in a future release, I will solve this problem radically... :fie:

yeah, ganymede is right where juno was later on after the flyby, if juno came to ganymede a bit later then it did and fallowed the same path it did, it would have smashed into ganymede
