Share Galileo's Legacy as Mission Nears Its End

Let’s say good bye to Galileo:

“On Sept. 21, NASA’s Galileo mission will come to an end when the hardy spacecraft plunges into the crushing pressure of Jupiter’s atmosphere. This planned maneuver will prevent the risk of Galileo drifting to an unwanted impact with the moon Europa, which may harbor a subsurface ocean. A live program from JPL, available on NASA TV and through the Web, on Sunday at 11 a.m. PDT (2 p.m. EDT) will provide live commentary from the mission control room and footage of the countdown clock as Galileo nears its final moments.”
