Description: Galileo Probe descending into Jupiter’s Atmosphere shows heat shield separation with parachute deployed, as it « hangs on the shrouds » and samples the atmosphere of the largest planet in the solar system, a key moment in the flight of Galileo. The probe entered the sunlit side of Jupiter’s atmosphere and provided the first direct sampling of the planet’s atmosphere. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory had over-all management responsibility for Galileo. NASA’s Ames Research Center was responsible for development of the probe. (Ref. JPL P-19180)
