The cameras aboard Voyager 1 have provided a closeup view of the Jupiter system, revealing heretofore unknown characteristics and phenomena associated with the planet's atmosphere and the surfaces of its five major satellites. On Jupiter itself, atmospheric motions-the interaction of cloud systems-display complex vorticity. On its dark side, lightning and auroras are observed. A ring was discovered surrounding Jupiter. The satellite surfaces display dramatic differences including extensive active volcanism on Io, complex tectonism on Ganymede and possibly Europa, and flattened remnants of enormous impact features on Callisto.

The success of this experiment has in a very real sense resulted directly from the individual contribution of several hundred men and women. Among these are the following: G. Bailey, H.T. Enmark, R.F. Lockhart, L.L. Simmons, and F. E. Vescelus (camera engineering); C.C. Avis, G.W. Garneau, P.L. Jepsen, J.J. Lorre, J.A. Mosher, D.J. Royer, A.A. Schwartz, M.J. Sullivan, G.M. Yagi, and the personnel of JPL's Mission Imaging Operation Group (data processing); R. Batson, P. Bridges, J. Inge, C. Isbell, B.K. Luchitta, G.G. Schaber, and R. Tyner (analysis and cartography); J.L. Anderson, R.P. Laeser, A.L. Lane, M.J. Sander, and C.H. Stembridge (project leadership); R. Gurrola, J.T. Harwood, R. Krauss, V.J. Nelson, L. Pieri, F. Popescu, and JPL's Photolab (supporting efforts); and especially M.L. Brownell, C.J. Hansen, P.N. Kupferman, J.L. Mitchell and the Voyager Sequence Team for their skilled and tireless efforts to coax such magnificent data from complicated and sometimes reluctant spacecraft. G.E. Hunt is supported by the Science Research Council, Great Britain. This report presents results of one phase of research carried out at JPL under NASA contract NAS 7-100. We are grateful for careful reviews of the manuscript by M. Malin, D. Muhleman, J. Pearl, and R. Terrile.
