Jupiter Add-on

The largest planet has been observed by the Pioneer, Voyager, Galileo, Ulysses and Cassini spacecraft. Currently, the New Horizons probe is collecting data on the way to its destination of Pluto and the Kuiper Belt.

These missions have acquired a large body of data about Jupiter and its moons. Of these, the highest quality global imaging surveys were conducted by Galileo and Cassini. From the volcanic turmoil of Io to Europa's possible ice sheets, the Jovian moons exhibit varied and dramatic characters.

The Jupiter Add-on for NASA World Wind combines high resolution images collected by the Galileo and Cassini missions. Jupiter is portrayed with a high resolution photomosaic produced during the Cassini fly-by in 2000.

The moons of Jupiter were mapped during the Galileo mission and are presented here in grayscale and color. Craters, mountains, valleys and other distinguishing surface features are identified by name and type of structure.
