The Ulysses spacecraft reached Jupiter's neighborhood and began a maneuver to use the giant planet's gravity to fling itself into an orbit that will carry it over the poles of the sun--the first spacecraft ever to achieve that. The $750-million NASA-European Space Agency craft will make its closest approach to Jupiter next Saturday but there will be no pictures because it is not carrying cameras. Instead, the craft is loaded with instruments that will study the sun in 1994 and 1995.
