Mission Profile — Observing Europa

Name: Galileo

Launch: 18 October 1989

Orbital insertion: 8 December 1995

Launch vehicle: Space Shuttle Atlantis

Vehicle mass (orbiter): 2,380kg (5,200lb)

Spacecraft dimensions (orbiter): 5.2m (17ft) high, 11m (32ft) wide

Initial discoveries:

Galileo remains the only spacecraft to orbit Jupiter, and its probe was the first to enter the Jovian atmosphere. It gave us numerous insights into Jupiter and its moons. Highlights from the mission included mapping the structure and extent of the Jovian magnetosphere, observing ammonia clouds in Jupiter’s atmosphere and discovering that Jupiter’s ring system

Galileo Galilei

The father of modern astronomy provided the basis for our understanding of the Solar System.

Italian astronomer, mathematician and physicist Galileo Galilei was born on 15 February 1564 in Pisa, Italy. He is often referred to as the father of modern observational astronomy, due to his pioneering telescopic work. Vilified for supporting heliocentrism, he is ultimately one of the most important figures in the history of astronomy.

Galileo was encouraged by his father, a musician and wool trader, to study medicine. Eventually, despite flirtations with becoming a monk (to which his father objected), he enrolled at the University of Pisa

Exploring Europa

The Galileo spacecraft gave us so much information about Europa that we’re planning to return soon.

Although Galileo was the first spacecraft to closely observe Europa, it wasn’t the first look we’ve had of the moon. Pioneer 10 captured images, albeit fuzzy ones, from about 321,000 kilometres (200,000 miles) away in 1973. These showed some of Europa’s albedo features, but that’s about it. The two Voyager probes gave us better images of the moon in the late-Seventies, showing enough detail to make some believe that there was a liquid ocean under its icy surface. Astronomers on Earth had been observing

Tightened rivals GPS

In the past month have started to work the first two satellite navigation system by European Union Galileo. This is another type of system GPS, competing with the unique American GPS and Russian GLONASS re-activated. The two satellites of the Galileo was launched in October of last Russian rocket Alliance, launched from the Baikonur EU in South America (French Guiana), located near the equator, which makes it easier to reach specific orbits. Two more satellites Galileo will be launched this year. This small number of satellites required to provide three-dimensional position of the disk imaging. The four satellites will

In the Guiana Space Center began training Russian carrier rocket "Soyuz-ST-B" for the first launch on 20 October. The rocket must be put into orbit two navigational satellite "Galileo". This was reported in "Arianespace" French operator carrier rocket "Soyuz-ST".

"Our work is on schedule and as long as the entire process of preparation goes into normal mode", the head of operations at the launch complex "Soyuz" Jean-Claude Garreau.

The rocket "Soyuz-ST-B" ahead of schedule is completely assembled in the assembly and testing cosmodrome in the horizontal position. Consistently collected into a single system three main
