StarDoc: Um, #5 on Galileo is wrong. Galileo had no parachutes as it was an orbital probe. Unless they are counting the chutes on the atmospheric probe that dropped into Jupiter's atmosphere.

In fact, Galileo was deorbited into Jupiter's atmosphere a year before Genesis.../Great fact-checking there, Lou...
