What is one well known satellite that visited Jupiter?
The only probe that visited Jupiter and stayed for any length of time was the Galileo probe. Launch from Earth in 1989, it arrived at Jupiter in 1995, and orbited Jupiter and its moon until Sept. 2003, when,due to the deterioration of the orbiter, NASA crashed it into Jupiter's atmosphere. Both Voyagers and Cassini/Huyguens did fly-bys of the planet without going into orbit. ...

Galileo dropped the smaller probe into Jupiter's atmosphere.
Asked in Meerkats, High Jump, Planet Jupiter
How high can you jump on Jupiter?
Answer That would depend on where you are on Jupiter. Jupiter has an immense gravity well, or area that the planet's gravity affects you. The closer you get to the center of Jupiter, the stronger the gravitational force becomes. In fact, if you were trying to get to the center of Jupiter to stand and try to jump, your body would have been crushed to a pulp by gravity and pressure in the upper atomsphere. That is what happened to the Galilaio...
Why did the Galileo space probe crash in to Jupiter when it ran out of fuel in 2003?
it was crashed (more likely destroyed, crushed and melted) into the gas giant planet Jupiter because it ran out of fuel and they didn't want it to contaminate any possible life on europa (jupters 6th moon) ...
Asked in Planetary Science, Planet Jupiter
How much time would it take to get to Jupiter?
It really depends on the distance between Earth and Jupiter at the time and the speed you are going. Scientists launching the New Horizons probe to Pluto used Jupiter's gravity as a slingshot (to accelerate the probe on to Pluto) in 2007. The probe was launched on January 19, 2006, and reached Jupiter in just 13 months (the fastest ever probe to do so). ...
Was Galileo the only spacecraft that visited Jupiter?
No, Galileo has been the only probe to actually orbit Jupiter.
What year and date was Jupiter's space probe sent to Jupiter?
It was supposed to get to Jupiter on 2016 May 11
Where did space probe Galileo go and what did it find?
The Space Probe Galileo was put into orbit around the planet Jupiter
Asked in Planet Jupiter
Did any satellites or robots explore Jupiter and in which year?
Yes. Jupiter was first visited on flyby missions by Pioneer 10 in 1973 and by Pioneer 11 in 1974. The space probe Ulysses encountered Jupiter when it was placed in a large orbit around the sun in 1992. It made a later encounter in 2004. The Galileo probe orbited Jupiter from 1995 until 2003 when its mission ended with a burn into the planet's atmosphere. Galileo sent an atmospheric probe to Jupiter in 1995. In 2000 the space probe Cassini flew by...
Did the space probe Galileo have any crew members?
No, Galileo was an unmanned probe. At this time, it is not possible for humans to travel to Jupiter. ...
