Arrivederci Galileo

Today is the last day in the life of the Galileo probe. This probe has 14 years of exploration and discovery under its belt. Build for a 2-year mission, the probe has had its mission expanded 3 times. Galileo has provided us with spectacular images (and knowledge) of Jupiter and its moons. I recommend looking at some of the articles on the Scientific American site. Slash Dot.org also has some very good articles of Galileo's discovery's. The spacecraft is being plunged into Jupiter to prevent it from crashing into Europa, which Galileo found to have water, when its power goes out. Our congratulations to the Galileo team (and craft) for their outstanding work.
