Giant  planets were the first planets to form and the most influential ones.  Their interiors and atmospheres have crucial information to understand  the origins of the solar system and of our own Earth.  With  the aim to reach a deeper understanding of Jupiter’s interior and  atmosphere, the Juno spacecraft was sent to the biggest giant in the  solar system, and its first results have fundamentally changed our  understanding of this planet. In  this seminar I will show the models we use to understand Jupiter's  interior, the constrains we are obtaining regarding the amount and  distribution of heavy elements in the interior of the planet, and our  latest Juno results -including a much deeper understanding of Jupiter’s  jet streams-, that will help us to reach a better understanding of  Jupiter formation history.
