Caption: Space Shuttle Atlantis blasts away from Launch Pad 39-B at Kennedy Space Center, Florida, at the start of Mission STS-34 on 18 October 1989. On board is the Galileo Jupiter Probe, deployed six hours into the flight by the Shuttle crew. Galileo will take six years to reach Jupiter, and will release a small probe which will parachute into Jupiter's atmosphere in December 1995. The remainder of Atlantis' flight was given over to a variety of life and materials science experiments, a safe return to Earth being made on 23 October 1989.
