did explore three gaseous outer planets Uranus and their orbiting moons and On a TitanCentaur rocket launched Voyager 2 on its grand tour of the solar Voyager 1 lifted off from Cape on soon overtaking its twin because of a shorter Voyagers 1 and 2 swept past Jupiter on March 5 and July They flew by Saturn on and Voyager l then shot above the plane of the speeding toward the solar systems Voyager 2

nature always surprised Voyagers showed theres a lot more diversity on the worlds of our solar system than we says astronomer Ctrl Weve discovered active organic atmospheric circulation on these If we claim to really unders tand these processes on we had better understand them on other On a moon of Voyager television cameras discovered the first active extraterrestrial volcanoes eight or nine erupting sulfur up to 155 miles creating molten sulfur lakes and a doughnutshaped zone of gas orbiting The probes revealed another kind of volcanism glacierlike Hows of icy slurry that oozed to the surface from within Saturns moons Tethys and and Uranus The Voyagers found that two of Jupiters moons Ganymede and Callisto and most of Saturns moons were made half of One of had a long a giant crack probably created when the moon On Uranus Voyager 2 revealed incredibly complex especially on with an ice cliff twice the height of Mount Scientists once thought volcanism and crustal movement occurred on ly on moons large enough to build up radioactive Voyager showed gravity from a planet and other moons can cause tidal forces that make solid rock and ice move within a or create heat to trigger Icy volcanism or even make a moons crust Voyagers discovered at least 17 moons three at at least four and possibly seven at and 10 at boosting the count to 16 for at least 17 at and 15 at The probes discovered a previously unseen ring encircling and showed Saturns seven known rings really were an almost continuous band of ice pebbles and Voyager 2 found Uranus nine known rings were merely part of a complex assort ment of partial rings and a halo of Stone said the Voyagers revela tions about rings are Important because rings of material are ubi quitous in the The galaxy Is a disk of The evolution of these disks causes the formation of The evolution of disks of material around stars forms The evolution of disks around planets forms moons and Craters on many moons visited by the Voyagers provided more evidence that collisions between huge objects were common In the young solar as material or biting the sun coalesced into planets and Voyager instruments probed the smoggy skies of Saturns moon revealing a steady rain of ethane and it found Titan Harbored the building blocks of but was too cold to let life The spacecraft found dozens of giant hurricanes on The probes also revealed that helium rains out of Saturns creating heat that drives jet The Voyagers learned hundreds of times more about the outer planets than all previous studies says deputy project scientist
