Galileo is oneof NASA's most successful missions,
providing spectacular results about Jupiterand its moons.
Launched in 1989, Galileo flew by Venus, Earth, and two
asteroidsbefore arriving at Jupiter in 1995. Designed to observe
Jupiter and itsmoons for two years, Galileo's great discoveries
and remarkable resilience allowed the mission to continue for
nearly six more years. This talk will review the discoveries of
the Galileo spacecraft, particularly those about Jupiter's four
largest moons: Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. From the
sizzling volcanoes of Io to the ice floes of Europa and the
enigmatic icy terrains of Ganymede and Callisto, Galileo leaves
us with a completely new view of these mysterious worlds before
plunging into Jupiter for a spectacular ending on September 21,
