Why did NASA name a spacecraft after Galileo?
He created the first telescope
There are a few different things named for Galileo Galilee. These include the Galileo satellite, the unmanned NASA spacecraft, and the Galileo Regio, a part of Jupiter's moon Ganymeade.
Galileo was the first spacecraft to orbit Jupiter.
Galileo was the first spacecraft to visit Jupiter.
The spacecraft that found asteroid951 was the Galileo Spacecraft..I think..
The Galileo spacecraft stayed in orbit for approximately 3 years.
the galileo spacecraft dropped a probe into jupiters atmospere, it was crushed by the dangerous gases once it decended about 130,000
cassini spacecraft nasa launched in 1997
The Galileo spacecraft was de-orbited into Jupitor at the end of its mission in 2003. This was done so the spacecraft could not crash into one of Jupiter's moons and possibly contaminate it with life from earth. Experts were pretty sure that the Galileo spacecraft was not completely sterile.
the Mariner 4 launched in 1964 by NASA
Apollo 11. In the spacecraft "Eagle".
the galileo, however it was destroyed in 2003 and a new spacecraft will be sent out in 2011
The New Horizons Spacecraft
NASA invented it
Without Galileo, NASA wouldn't exist.
From 1995 to 2003.
Galileo in 1995.
it has to do with investigation of the universe by spacecraft.
No, it was launched by America However, Voyager One is composed of over 65,000 individual parts, plus the smaller components for those parts. Some of those parts were constructed in other countries and then shipped to the US for assembly. Just because a craft was launched by NASA, however, it does not mean it is an American craft. NASA has signed a cooperation treaty with 135 other countries and works alongside them in space exploration.
Nope, it returned to NASA
The space shuttle.
No, Galileo has been the only probe to actually orbit Jupiter.
The first spacecraft to land successfully on Mars was Viking 1 in 1975
It did not return to Earth.
Which spacecraft? "Spacecraft" can refer to either rockets or their payloads. In both cases, the answer depends on which contractors were selected to built different parts of the vehicle or satellite. NASA also has its own facilities for spacecraft development and testing, scattered among the agency's centers in several states.
The Galileo spacecraft originally photographed the asteroid 951 Gaspra.
The next generation manned spacecraft is named "Orion" The name of the program is "Constellation"
Nasa space shuttle
The Magellan spacecraft was launched to study Venus by NASA on May 4th 1989.
No, it was sent to study Jupiter.
'MESSENGER' is the Mercury Mission - See the related link listed below for more information:
Galileo was an unmanned spacecraft sent to study Jupiter and other solar system bodies. It was first launched in 1989 and because of contamination concerns, it was ordered to crash into the surface of Jupiter in 2003.
The space shuttle never landed on the moon, but other NASA spacecraft did.
A mission specialist is a NASA astronaut who does not pilot the spacecraft.
no u smell like cheese
Despite antenna problems, Galileo conducted the first asteroid flyby, discovered the first asteroid moon, was the first spacecraft to orbit Jupiter, and launched the first probe into Jupiter's atmosphere.
NASA continues to track the two Voyager spacecraft on the way to the boundary of our Solar System. These are BOTH spacecrafts.
Io was known long before the time of NASA. It was discovered by Galileo Galilei in 1610.
No spacecraft can land on Jupiter. A probe was sent by the Galileo spacecraft into Jupiter's atmosphere, where it was crushed and disintegrated by the immense pressure.
The Galileo spacecraft collected information about Jupiter and it's moons ; see related link below .
i think its 1

From what I have read it was going 50,000 mph.
Yes but not with someone in it,it has a spacecraft that has a camera attached so it takes pictures to send back to NASA here on Earth.
NASA never send a rover to Saturn, because there is no solid landing surface. However, NASA did send the Galileo and Cassini-Huygens probes to Saturn.
He flew in the Gemini spacecraft as well as Apollo 11.
They have private oil mines ands when they run out they...
The short name was RAX or Remote Agent as NASA called it and was used to control the spacecraft without any human supervision.
The first NASA space craft to mars set off on August 2007 and they arrived in may 2008
