World History

Thursday, July 13, 1995. :   The spacecraft 'Galileo' releases a probe to penetrate and take measurements of Jupiter's atmosphere.

     Galileo was an unmanned spacecraft designed to study Jupiter and its moons. On 13 July 1995, the Galileo Orbiter and the probe separated for the latter to penetrate Jupiter's atmosphere. Its scientific objectives included measuring Jupiter's temperature, chemical composition and its atmospheric pressure structure. The probe entered Jupiter's atmosphere on 7 December 1995. In order to collect data, it was required to drop its protective shield during its 57 minute descent, and was subsequently crushed by the density of the core. However, the probe collected valuable data in that time, which it relayed back to the Orbiter.

Thought For Today
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for human beings
Colossians 3:23 (c) GNB
If all employers and employees had this attitude then our Country would surely be a better place for it.
