Historical PDF: "The Voyager Flights to Jupiter and Saturn"

Topics: history, Voyager 1 and 2, Saturn, Jupiter

A while ago I posted all 99 issues of the Voyager Mission Status Bulletins in PDF format, and now I have another cool item to add to that collection: NASA EP-191, "The Voyager Flights to Jupiter and Saturn." This was a 60-page booklet on nice, thick paper that contained dozens of beautiful, high-resolution, full-color pictures from Voyager 1 and 2's flybys of the two giant planets and their moons. The Bulletins were cool for their blow-by-blow descriptions of mission activities, but their black-and-white pictures were pretty lousy in print quality. EP-191 made up for that, in a big way. I am very grateful to Bill Leung for scanning every page for me!

Do you have a collection of mission newsletters or special publications that isn't available on the Web? Do you also have a scanner and some free time? Do a public service and scan them and send them to me!

One page from NASA EP-191, "The Voyager Flights to Jupiter and Saturn," which was printed by JPL in 1982. EP-191 includes dozens of huge full-color photos, presenting the best images and most fascinating science results from the Jupiter and Saturn encounters. It was scanned for us by Bill Leung.
