In a very rough economic analysis, Joseph Veverka, professor of astronomy and planetary sciences at Cornell University, said that NASA's Galileo and earlier Voyager missions to Jupiter cost each American about the equivalent of one chocolate bar per year.
“Given the results that Galileo has produced in the last several years, I think you probably got your chocolate bar's worth,” Veverka mused at a September 15 news conference held by the National Optical Astronomy Observatories (NOAO)in Tucson, Ariz., and Cornell to announce the latest dramatic discovery involving the spacecraft.
