This book would be appropriate for large libraries, although David M. Harland's Jupiter Odyssey: The Story of NASA's Galileo Mission (Springer-Verlag, ) provides a clearer and more complete account of Cited by: 3.

Mission to Jupiter Galileo Galaxy Evolution Explorer Genesis ABOUT THE MISSION. While its aim was to study Jupiter and its mysterious moons, which it did with much success, NASA's Galileo mission also became notable for discoveries during its journey to the gas giant.

It was the first spacecraft to visit an asteroid -- two in fact, Gaspra and : NASA/JPL. A useful summary mission timeline is included, as well as a list of applicable books and web Galileo mission to Jupiter book relating both to Galileo and Jupiter.

Another useful feature is the summary tables of key mission objectives and results. the book presents a good popular account of what has been one of NASA’s most fascinating missions.". The Galileo spacecraft was launched on Octo Galileo had two parts: an orbiter and a descent probe that parachuted into Jupiter's o's main mission was to explore Jupiter and its moons and Galileo mission ended on Septemwhen mission controllers crashed Galileo into Jupiter's atmosphere.

An artist's conception of the Galileo spacecraft, which was launched in for a mission to Jupiter. Galileo was the first spacecraft to examine Jupiter and its moons for an extended period. The Galileo mission to Jupiter explored an exciting new frontier, had a major impact on planetary science, and provided invaluable lessons for the design of spacecraft.

This mission amassed so many scientific firsts and key discoveries that it can truly be called one of the most impressive feats of File Size: 3MB. The Galileo spacecraft logged quite a few other firsts during its year mission to Jupiter.

Among its discoveries: an intense radiation belt above Jupiter's cloud tops, helium in about the same concentration as the Sun, extensive and rapid resurfacing of the moon Io. The Galileo mission ended on Sept.

21,when the spacecraft was intentionally commanded to plunge into Jupiter’s atmosphere, where it was destroyed. However, to this day scientists continue to study the data it collected.

rows  Jupiter: Galileo Hubble Space Telescope IRTF: WFPC2: xx3: PIA Cold Hole. Focusing on the Galileo mission, this book tracks the remarkable spacecraft gestation, the ordeal of its long haul out to Jupiter, and its 5 year long exploration of the Jovian system.

The book features material taken from press conferences, technical papers, and essays written by engineers and scientists involved in the NASA Galileo by: 5. For more on the Galileo mission:   Mission Jupiter brings us the exciting story of the Galileo mission to investigate Jupiter.

The noted astronomer Daniel Fischer, co-author of Hubble: A New Window to the Universe and Hubble Revisited: New Images from the Discovery Machine, weaves together the many disparate facts We are at the dawn of a new era in the study of space, all thanks /5.

The Galileo mission was designed to send an atmospheric probe and orbiter spacecraft to Jupiter for a two-year observation of Jupiter, its satellites and its magnetosphere [7]. Mission Mechanics The Galileo Spacecraft The Galileo spacecraft contained an orbiter with ten scientific instruments and an atmospheric probe containing a radio and six.

Galileo imagery has revealed surface features on Europa (one of Jupiter's large icy moons) that suggested the presence of subsurface water. In Septemberthe mission ended as the orbiter plunged into Jupiter's atmosphere in order to avoid a future collision with Europa that could impact future studies of that moon and its subsurface ocean.

The Galileo Project was originally conceived as a mission to study Jupiter and its satellites. Most early plans for this mission called for direct flights to Jupiter.

After new constraints were placed on shuttle operations after the Challenger accident and the Centaur program was cancelled, a direct flight to Jupiter became impossible. Mission to Jupiter book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers.

When Galileo lifted off from Kennedy Space Center on 18 October 4/5(1). The story of the journey to Jupiter is combined with interesting details about Galileo's capacities and a graphic description of the solar system, with an entertaining episode on how Galileo would judge the chances of finding life on Earth.

The book concludes with a look to the future, closing on the Cassini probe to Saturn, launched just last. This is a meticulously researched and presented book that unfortunately reads too much like a scientific textbook.

Being a layperson with a lifelong passing interest in astronomy and the space program, The Galileo mission to Jupiter had more than its fair share of interesting topics: bureaucratic budget battles, the Centaur launch vehicle dilemma, the Space Shuttle disaster, the spectacular /5(5).

This book attempts to convey the creativity, leadership, and vision that were necessary for the Galileo mission's success. It is a book about dedicated people and their scientific and engineering achievements.

The Galileo mission faced many significant problems. Some of the most brilliant accomplishments and work-arounds of the Galileo staff occurred precisely when these challenges by: The Galileo mission to Jupiter in the latter half of this decade is NASA's next step in the exploration of Jupiter.

Galileo will explore in depth many unanswered and newly suggested questions which remain after the Voyager mission. The primary science objectives are to study the satellites, the magnetosphere, and Jupiter's : J. Casani. On Sept. 21, NASA s Galileo mission will come to an end when the hardy spacecraft plunges into the crushing pressure of Jupiter s atmosphere.

This planned maneuver will prevent the risk of Galileo drifting to an unwanted impact with the moon Europa, which may harbor a subsurface ocean.Galileo was an American uncrewed spacecraft that studied the planet Jupiter and its moons, as well as several other Solar System bodies.

Named after the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, it consisted of an orbiter and an entry was delivered into Earth orbit on Octo by Space Shuttle Atlantis. Galileo arrived at Jupiter on December 7,after gravitational assist Mission type: Jupiter orbiter.
