description

Summary

A set of revisions to the scientific objectives of the Voyager mission prepared at the request of Bradford Smith, head of the Voyager Project's photo-imagery team. The brief document mentions a series of primary goals for the mission including the examination of chromophores in the atmospheres of Jupiter and Saturn, observation of vorticity and exchange in the Great Red Spot of Jupiter, and examination of the satellites of Jupiter and Saturn. The document ends with Sagan noting he will be on a leave of absence from Cornell University for the entire year of 1979 when he will be based in Los Angeles working on the television series Cosmos and devoting the remainder of his time to the Voyager mission.
