1995: The Galileo spacecraft arrives at Jupiter after six years of travel via gravitational assist flybys of Venus and Earth, becoming the first spacecraft to orbit Jupiter. The orbiter would spend eight years examining Jupiter and its moons Io and Europa until NASA concluded its mission in September 2003 by sending the orbiter into Jupiter's atmosphere, destroying it to avoid any chance of it contaminating local moons with bacteria from Earth.
