Kohlhase comments: “When Voyager 1 returned this photo in late February 1979 of the two inner Galilean moons Io and Europa, I was struck with the sudden awareness and excitement that every day we would see more and more of these planet-sized worlds as the spacecraft neared Jupiter. They were beautiful and happily unlike Earth’s dull gray, cratered moon. I could hardly wait for the close-up photos of their unusual surfaces.”
