             abstract = "An extensive analysis of the gravitational capture of a spacecraft 
                         by Jupiter is performed for the main regions of interest around 
                         this planet. Four different dynamical models are used to study the 
                         problem. Our methodology is analogous to the one used to study the 
                         gravitational capture maneuvers in the Earth-Moon system. However, 
                         here the motion of the spacecraft is free to occupy the 
                         three-dimensional space rather than been limited to the orbital 
                         plane of the primaries, that is the most usual approach available 
                         in the literature. Similarly to what was done in the Earth-Moon 
                         system, the two-body energy Jupiter-spacecraft is monitored all 
                         the time and an impulsive maneuver should be applied to complete 
                         the capture when the spacecraft reaches the periapsis of the close 
                         approach trajectory. Our results show that the presence of the 
                         oblateness of Jupiter in the dynamical model is essential to 
                         obtain lower values for the two-body energy in times that are not 
                         too long for practical missions. The Galilean satellites are also 
                         very important, and despite their contribution in the 
                         gravitational capture maneuver itself, they can be used as a 
                         source of swing-bys that decrease the two-body energy
