artist's concept of Galileo at Jupiter

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.
