COMPOSITE PHOTO OF JUPITER AND FOUR OF ITS MOONS.
After eight years orbiting Jupiter, NASA's Galileo space probe will end
its long mission on September 21, 2003 by plunging down through the
jovian cloud tops and smashing into the giant planet - collecting data
as it goes. Low on propellant and six years past its original end date,
Galileo has set a collision course with Jupiter to eliminate any
unwanted crash into the jovian moon Europa, officials at NASA's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory said in a statement. This 'family portrait,' a
composite of the Jovian system, includes the edge of Jupiter with its
Great Red Spot, and Jupiter's four largest moons, known as the Galilean
satellites. From top to bottom, the moons shown are Io, Europa,
Ganymede and Callisto. REUTERS/JPL/NASA-Galileo-Handout EDITORIAL USE
