The solar-powered space probe Juno has entered orbit around Jupiter to explore the giant planet, Nasa said.
The spacecraft, named after the Roman goddess, successfully completed a manoeuvre that saw it fire a rocket to slow its 150,000 mph (250,000 kph) approach to the gas giant.
Cheers and applause erupted in NASA's mission control in California when a signal arrived confirming the burn was complete.
However it will be some time before Juno begins beaming data and images back to Earth, as the spacecraft's camera and other instruments were switched off for arrival.
The leader of the NASA team behind the successful Juno mission to Jupiter has hailed the team effort behind the project, describing its completion as a "dream come true".
Speaking at a press conference after the space probe began its orbit of the solar system's biggest planet, Scott Bolton said: "NASA did it again. That says it all to me.
"I am so happy to be part of the team that did that. This team has worked so hard and we have just such great people and it's almost like a dream coming true right here."

Students have found a parachute from a high altitude balloon they sent into the Near Space region of the earth's atmosphere.
Pupils at Fakenham Academy in Norfolk launched the balloon from Elsworth in Cambridgeshire, and it rose to more than 26,000 metres.
The balloon burst, as planned, when it reached high altitude and the parachute with a computer and camera attached came down at Bourne near Peterborough.
