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, 2003.
