Jupiter 1975 by Snowfall-The-Cat Jupiter 1975 by Snowfall-The-Cat
Wow, Jupiter looked very different back then! Its a changing planet that's for sure.

I made this map using Pioneer 11 flyby photos of Jupiter, found here: www.astrosurf.com/nunes/explor… They have global maps on that web sight. but they look nothing like the flyby photos to me so i reassembled them all myself. It looks a lot better, And i adjusted the colours a little so they fit and match Jupiter. enjoy!

use this map however you like i dont care. space is free.

Made in Blender 3D and GIMP as usual. same way i made my Pluto maps

Yeah, the imaging method brings to mind both mechanical television and Wendy Carlos' article on color photography.  www.wendycarlos.com/colorvis/c…

yeah it was a very old photograph system! Though i still find it annoying that they bothered to put people on the moon before they sent robots to Jupiter and Saturn. They had the best cameras for its time I'm sure too!

It probably came down to reliability, mass, downlink rates, and power...but the Mariners with cameras managed carry working cameras to their destinations (in spite of a near-miss on 10 with faulty heaters.)

It's still amazing that they were just being able to do those things back then, considering that at one time before, i think spy satellites needed to send film canisters back to Earth in order to see the photos.

Yeah, the early-model Corona satellites did that.  The Zenit series was a similar idea, but with both the film and camera assemblies inside of a Vostok-derived reentry vehicle.  (The last one of those flew in 1994!)

Great work! It does look better then the maps on that site.
I'll be sad when the big red spot isn't so big any more, and when it probably disappears in the future.

thanks! :)
and me too, its a shame, but hopefully a new GRS pops up to take the place of the old one if it goes away, who knows!
also, check out this photo of Jupiter from 1879 i.imgur.com/gPAyiIK.jpg if only it was still that big today!
