Part 3, Chapter 19

Transit of Jupiter

  • And coming up on Jupiter.
  • They head to the moons, and get readings from Europa.
  • Then they slingshot around Jupiter and head off to Saturn.
  • The novel tries to build suspense by worrying about whether the maneuver will be successful…but you can see how much of the book remains. Complete disaster can't strike quite yet, or the novel would end too quickly.
