Example text

Galileo was the next spacecraft to fly to Jupiter. It began to orbit Jupiter in 1995, after a journey of six years. It took close-up photos of Jupiter and several moons. 39 Galileo took this close-up image of Europa’s surface in 1996. The lines shown are cracks where ice on the moon broke apart and moved into new positions. Galileo took close-up photos of Europa in 1996. From these photos, scientists discovered that liquid water probably lies beneath the icy surface. Never before had astronomers found liquid water outside of Earth.

This volcano blasted lava more than 300 miles (about 500 km) out into space! Galileo’s camera captured this volcanic eruption (right) on Io’s surface (above). 41 Galileo also launched a special machine called a probe. This probe flew through Jupiter’s clouds and into its atmosphere. For almost an hour, the probe sent back information. The probe found very high wind speeds. It also found hotter and hotter temperatures. Then, after 58 minutes, the probe stopped working. It was melted by the blazing heat inside Jupiter’s atmosphere.
