Data from probe sent into atmosphere of Jupiter from Galileo spacecraft - report on data sent back to earth and what it reveals about the Jovian atmosphere. From R4 1800 Hrs. News.

PRE:Wilkinson: atmosphere denser and hotter than expected. Only one cloud layer rather than expected three. Probe buffeted by 330 mph winds - higher than expected. New radiation belt found, but virtually no lightning. Composition of atmosphere different from that expected. Less carbon, oxygen, sulphur and water than thought.
