Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough,
if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows
us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not
that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often
hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat
sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to
ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the
sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new
spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into
cyber-aero-space for awhile.
The Galileo spacecraft's 14-year odyssey came to an end on
Sunday, Sept. 21, 2003 when the spacecraft passed into
Jupiter's shadow then disintegrated in the planet's dense
atmosphere at 11:57 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. The Deep Space
Network tracking station in Goldstone, Calif., received the last
signal at 12:43:14 PDT.
