Abstract

NASA has informed scientists on the Magellan project that there is a limit to which the spacecraft can plumb the depths of Venus. In September, the Solar System Exploration Division reaffirmed its decision to stop Magellan's probe of Venus in May 1993 and close down operations, according to David Okerson, mission program engineer.
