The Three Galileos: The Man, the Spacecraft, the Telescope Proceedings of the Conference held in Padova, Italy on January 7–10, 1997

The idea of having a conference in Padova describing the results obtained by the Galileo spacecraft and the characteristics of the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo began in 1995, when a number of colleagues from both sides of the Atlantic began exchanging suggestions and ideas. Looking at the schedules...
