dc.description.abstract After six years of interplanetary flight, in just two months, on December 7, 1995, Galileo will arrive at Jupiter. In July, Galileo released its Atmospheric Entry Probe on the five-month solo, ballistic flight to Jupiter entry. After Probe release, the Orbiter fired its 400-N main engine for the first time to deflect the Orbiter to its Io flyby aim point, establishing the trajectory for Probe radio relay link acquisition and orbit insertion. The 400-N engine was specifically used for the deflection in order to check it out prior to orbit insertion. en_US
