Today marks the 30th anniversary of Voyager 1's flyby of Jupiter. On March 5, 1979, Voyager 1 flew through the Jupiter system providing a wealth of information of Jupiter, its magnetic field, and moons. Thanks to Voyager 1, the Galilean satellites became worlds with real geology and amazing vistas. Voyager 1 also revealed Jupiter's ring system and Io's volcanism for the first time.

I've written up a longer post about the encounter with Io on my blog, which also has an animation of the flyby: http://gishbar.blogspot.com/2009/03/30th-a...1-flyby-of.html

The mosaic is beautiful work, Jason; thank you!!!

I'll never forget Mar 5, 1979. The first closeup Io images were just coming in on PBS as I was getting ready to leave for school (sophmore year of HS)...my jaw dropped as a picture formed line-by-line of a fluid outflow pattern of some sort, with Sagan exclaiming 'Oh, wow!' or words to that effect off-camera. Then I had to bolt to school, dammit.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
