What's New With Galileo? - A Probing Question

On July 13th, 1995, the U.S. Galileo spacecraft will be some 50 million miles from its target--Jupiter. On that day a scientific probe will be released, set adrift on a path that will send it slamming into the turbulent planet's atmosphere this December [1995]. Richard Young of NASA's Ames Research Center and a Galileo project scientist explains that this probe will directly sample the Jovian atmosphere.
