Galileo "I24" image, scrambled (left) and repaired (right)
Filed under Jupiter's moons, Io, pretty pictures, Galileo
During Galileo's I24 flyby on October 11, 1999, a "single-event upset" in the computer caused by an energetic particle resulted in the scrambling of the Io images. Some hard work eventually enabled them to be mostly descrambled. The scrambled raw data for this image was unscrambled by a program developed at JPL using the LabVIEW software from National Instruments of Austin, TX.
