Appendix C. Additional G2 Results



In the files below, the following key is used:


N - normal trace without corotation, scattering, or electric field;
C - corotation; e.g., C25C00 means with 25% corotation and 0% corotation;
S - scattering; e.g., 005 means 5 x 10-3 scattering coefficient, 001 means 1 x 10-3 scattering coefficient;
E - electric field; P means parallel electric field, 00 means no parallel electric field, 75 means a parallel electric field of 75 millivolts.

Manufacturer: The Galileo Spacecraft was manufactured by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm, General Electric, and the Hughes Aircraft Company.

Mission Duration: Galileo was planned to have a mission duration of around 8 years, but was kept in operation for 13 years, 11 months, and 3 days, until it was destroyed in a controlled impact with Jupiter on September 21, 2003.

Destination: Galileo's destination was Jupiter and its moons, which it orbitted for 7 years, 9 months, and 13 days.
