Year 7, Day 264 (Jool Surveyor Pol Fly-By!)

As the probe passes over Pol’s highlands, gravity scans indicate multiple layers on the world’s surface.

Electricity this far out is proving to be the mission’s main obstacle, transmissions require a great deal of the craft’s power!

The onboard multi-spectral scanner is also able to get the first close look at the surface! Future passes will hopefully add to the data and help create a full picture of the surface.

In all, a very successful start to the Jool Surveyor mission!
