Photo by Voyager 1 (JPL) The spacecraft took this photo of the planet Jupiter on Jan 24, while still more than 25 million miles (40 million kilometers) away. As the spacecraft draws closer to the planet (about 1 million kilometers a day) more details are emergng in the turbulent clouds. The Great Red Spot shows prominently below center, surrounded by what scientists call a remarkably complex region of the giant planet's atmosphere. An elongated yellow cloud within the Great Red Spot is swirling around the spot's interior boundary in a counterclockwise direction with a period of a little less than six days, confirming the whirlpool-like circulation that astronomers have suspected from ground-based photographs. Ganymede, Jupiter's largest satellite, can be seen to the lower left of the planet. Ganymede is a planet-sized body larger than Mercury. This color photo was assembled at Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Image Processing Lab from there black and white images taken through filters. The Voyagers are managed for NASA's Office of Space Science by Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  (ref: P-20945C  Mission Image 1-9) ARC-1979-AC79-0143-3

Voyager 1 Image of Jupiter and two of its satellites (Io, left, and Europa). Io is about 350,000 kilometers (220,000 miles) above Jupiter's Great Red Spot; Europa is about 600,000 kilometers (375,000 miles) above Jupiter's clouds. Although both satellites have about the same brightness, Io's color is very different from Europa's. Io's equatorial region show two types of material -- dark orange, broken by several bright spots -- producing a mottled appearance. The poles are darker and reddish. Preliminary evidence suggests color variations within and between the polar regions.  Io's surface composition is unknown, but scientists believe it may be a mixture of salts and sulfur.  Erupoa is less strongly colored, although still relatively dark at short wavelengths. Markings on Eruopa are less evident that on the other satellites, although this picture shows darker regions toward the trailing half of the visible disk. Jupiter at this point is about 20 million kilometers (12.4 million miles) from the spacecraft.  At this resolution (about 400 kimometers or 250 miles) there is evidence of circular motion in Jupiter's atmosphere. While the dominant large-scale motions are west-to-east, small-scale movement includes eddy-like circulation within and between the bands.  (JPL ref: P-21082) ARC-1979-A79-0164-1

P-34715 Range: 900,000 kilometers (560,000 miles) This post-encounter view of the south pole of Neptune was obtained after Voyager 2 passed the planet and sped away on a southward-trending trajectory. Voyager's wide-angle camera saw features as small as 120 km (75 mi) in diameter. The angle between the Sun, the center of the planet, and the spacecraft is 137 °, so the entire south polar region is illuminated. Near the bright limb, clouds located at 71 and 42 degrees south latitude rotate eastward onto Neptune's night side. A bright cloud (bottom center) lies within 1.5 ° of Neptune's south pole, which has been determined from the orbits of the planet's rings and satellites. The feature is believed to be created by an organized circulation around the pole that forms a clear 'eye' at the center of the system. ARC-1989-A89-7050

Range :  1.4 to 2 million miles This series of pictures shows four views of the planet Venus obtained by Galileo's Solid State Imaging System.The pictures in the top row were taken about 4 & 5 days after closest approach; those in the bottom row were taken about 6 days out, 2 hours apart.  In these violet-light images, north is at the top and the evening terminator to the left.  The cloud features high in the planet's atmosphere rotate from right to left, from the limb through the noon meridian toward the terminator, travelling all the way around the planet once every four days.  The motion can be seen by comoparing the last two pictures, taken two hours apart.  The other views show entirely different faces of Venus.  These photos are part of the 'Venus global circulation' sequence planned by the imaging team. ARC-1995-A91-2003

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --  A Delta II rocket appears to erupt from the undulating clouds of smoke below as it launches with the joint NASA/French Space Agency oceanography satellite Jason 1 and Thermosphere Ionosphere Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics satellite aboard.  Liftoff from Launch Complex 2W occurred at 7:07 a.m. PST (10:07 a.m. EST or 15:07 GMT).  Jason 1 joins the orbiting Topex/Poseidon satellite to continue observations of the global climate interaction occurring between the sea and the atmosphere as a result of stored solar energy.  Instruments on Jason 1 will map variations in ocean surface topography to monitor world ocean circulation, study interactions of the oceans and atmosphere, improve climate predictions and observe events like El Nino.  The mission is expected to last three years.  The TIMED satellite will study a little-known region above the atmosphere, some 40 to 110 miles from the Earth's surface. Studying this region has been nearly impossible until now because conventional airplanes and balloons cannot reach this high altitude, and it is too low for direct satellite measurements KSC01pd1821

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. --  After being dropped from the L-1011 aircraft at 3:14 p.m. EST over the Atlantic Ocean, the Pegasus XL rocket fires, propelling NASA's Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) toward its orbit. Separation of the spacecraft from the rocket occurred 10 minutes and 46 seconds after launch at about 3:24 p.m.  Initial contact with the satellite was made seven seconds after separation via a NASA communications satellite network. Over the next few days, the mission team will insure that the spacecraft is functioning properly. The SORCE science instruments will then be turned on and their health verified.  Approximately 21 days after launch, if all is going well, the instruments will start initial science data collection and calibration will begin. The spacecraft will study the Sun's influence on our Earth and will measure from space how the Sun affects the Earth's ozone layer, atmospheric circulation, clouds, and oceans.  This mission is a joint partnership between NASA and the University of Colorado's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics in Boulder, Colorado.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - After takeoff off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., the Pegasus XL rocket, with NASA's Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE), can be seen attached underneath and between the wheels of the L-1011 aircraft. The L-1011 will release the rocket over the Atlantic Ocean at 39,000 feet. After separation from the rocket, initial contact with the satellite will be made and the mission team will insure that the spacecraft is functioning properly. The SORCE science instruments will then be turned on and their health verified.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- The Pegasus XL rocket is dropped from the L-1011 aircraft at 3:14 p.m. EST, propelling NASA's Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) toward its orbit. Separation of the spacecraft from the rocket occurred 10 minutes and 46 seconds after launch at about 3:24 p.m.  Initial contact with the satellite was made seven seconds after separation via a NASA communications satellite network. Over the next few days, the mission team will insure that the spacecraft is functioning properly. The SORCE science instruments will then be turned on and their health verified.  Approximately 21 days after launch, if all is going well, the instruments will start initial science data collection and calibration will begin.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --  At Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, workers prepare to move the transporter from beneath the Delta II first stage, suspended above, on Space Launch Complex 2.  The first stage will be lifted into the mobile service tower. The Delta II is the launch vehicle for the OSTM/Jason-2 spacecraft.  The OSTM, or Ocean Topography Mission, on the Jason-2 satellite is a follow-on to Jason-1. It will take oceanographic studies of sea surface height into an operational mode for continued climate forecasting research and science and industrial applications.  This satellite altimetry data will help determine ocean circulation, climate change and sea-level rise. OSTM is a joint effort by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA, France’s Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales and the European Meteorological Satellite Organisation. OSTM/Jason-2 will be launched aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II 7320 from Vandenberg on June 15.  Photo credit: NASA/Dan Liberotti KSC-08pd1322
