OFJ Field Journal from Terry Martin - 11/30/95


Well, here we are a week from JOI. How long a trip it's been! I started working for Galileo in late 1983, and felt I was a latecomer at that point. After the 1989 launch, and the extended solar system cruise was developed to take us to Jupiter, it seemed we would never get there! Now, the suspense is very strong: will we get in orbit properly? Will the Probe do its thing and send us the first up-close and personal view of a giant planet? If those two activities go well, the sound you hear will be cheers and sighs of relief from Pasadena.
