Abstract:

Contains the original NASA film showing how, at one million miles a day for twenty-one-months, Pioneer 10 soared through the solar system to take the first photos of Jupiter. The probe penetrated the unexplored asteroid belt without mishap, thus eliminating the fear that high-speed particles or large asteroids might destroy the spacecraft. On its journey, beautiful pictures of Mars were taken and sensitive weather information was sent back to Earth. This film explores what we learned about Jupiter, the largest planet, a volatile giant of storms and gases. Pioneer flew around the other side of the moon Io, then continued on toward Saturn.
