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.


Today in History

Thought For Today
Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed:
2 Kings 20:2 (c) GNB
When things get tough the tough get praying. Take time to block out all the turmoil and lock yourself away. Have some quiet dialogue with God and watch for the results.
