Introduction

During its cruise from Earth to Jupiter, the Galileo Spacecraft returned images of the Earth, Moon, Venus, asteroids Gaspra, Ida, and Dactyl, and the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 impact with Jupiter. On December 7th, 1995, the Galileo Probe descended into Jupiter's atmosphere and relayed the data it collected to the Galileo Orbiter which then transmitted the data to Earth. The Galileo Orbiter continues its tour of the Jovian system until January 2000.

This website contains information regarding the imaging camera aboard the orbiter, displays IMAGES acquired by the camera, contains resources useful to EDUCATORS and the general public, and is integrated with the complete Galileo mission web pages.
