Abstract

The launching of the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecrafts in the summer of 1977, followed by their encounters with Jupiter and its satellites last March and July, are now major episodes in the history of planetary exploration. For Voyager though, the trip into space is not over—the encounters with Saturn are next in line for exploration.
