Jupiter is one of the brightest planets in our night sky and by far the largest in the Solar System.
What the Romans called the "Father of the Sky" is huge -its diameter is more than ten times Earth's, and its mass is well over twice the total of all the rest of the planets in the Solar System. Yet, in spite of its staggering size, its position relatively close to us, and its prominent place in our myths and imagination, Jupiter has remained one of the most enigmatic of our planetary neighbors.
This book tells the story of the Galileo space probe and the astonishing things it has told us about Jupiter. By the end of its mission, Galileo will have traveled an extraordinary 2,8 billion miles and sent back more than 15 000 images of astonishing detail.
