Geophys. Res. Let. 21, #11, 1035-1038.
Both in 1991 and 1992, the dust detector onboard the Ulysses
spacecraft detected several dust streams within a few thousand radii
of Jupiter apparently originating from the jovian system. Both the
timing and measured speeds of the two last dust streams detected are
compatible with dust from comet Shoemaker-Levy 9's (SL9) disruption in
1992. Our investigations of stream characteristics and dust
acceleration mechanisms, however, show that this is an unlikely
possibility. In July 1994 when SL9 impacts Jupiter, the Galileo
spacecraft will about 3500 jovian radii away from the planet.
Submicron-sized dust released into, and accelerated by, the jovian
magnetosphere during this event may reach Galileo and be detected by
its dust detector between September and November 1994. We also discuss
the possibility of directly sampling dust from SL9 during Galileo's
