Launched in 1977, the twin Voyagers’ exploration of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune revealed distinctive worlds with many surprises. Jupiter’s moon Io has 100 times more volcanic activity than Earth, while nearby Europa is covered by a smooth icy crust. Organic liquids likely rain on the surface of Saturn’s giant moon Titan, while geysers erupt from the frozen nitrogen polar caps of Neptune’s moon Triton. Small moons “shepherd” icy particles into narrow rings, and massive storms create unexpected weather patterns in the giant planets’ atmospheres.

The Voyagers revealed a new view of the solar system that set the stage for our return missions to Jupiter and Saturn — Galileo and Cassini–Huygens.
