SPACE CRAFT DOWN

Science Illustrated - - CONTENTS -

When a space probe comes to the end of its mis­sion, we can’t go and pick it up. So these ma­chines go out in a more spec­tac­u­lar style...

In­tended crashes, de­lib­er­ate fires, and pure bad luck have killed count­less space­crafts. How­ever, the ex­pen­sive equip­ment has not died in vain. Strug­gling for their lives, the crafts pick up new knowl­edge and test bold ma­noeu­vres. The next in line is Juno, that will die in Jupiter's at­mos­phere.
