Caption

The Ulysses spacecraft during testing. Due for launch by the space shuttle in October 1990, Ulysses will study the Sun & interplanetary medium out of the plane of the Solar System. The spacecraft's initial trajectory will take it on a 14-month flight to Jupiter, where the giant planet's gravity will be used as a slingshot to hurl the spacecraft out of the plane of the Solar System & back towards the Sun. Two & a half years later its orbit will take it over both of the Sun's poles. Ulysses is run jointly by ESA & NASA. Ref: ESA Ulysses leaflet.
