Voyager did take the photo, but it was the human who noted that what the photo showed was a moon. andy
Jupiter's four first discovered moons were Io, Ganymede, Europa, and Callisto. Thebe could hardly be fourth. And I had thought that Thebe was a moon of Saturn...although I could be wrong on that point.
Fourth means not by discovery date, but by distance from the planet. Seems like the article needs a little clarification on this point. (Done) andy

is the fourth of Jupiter's known moons (by distance from the planet). => by distance..., it is the fourth of the known moons (now it might be confusing to weather it is the 4th discovered one)
Ring, which is f => I would use that instead of which
Amalthea is the largest of the inner satellites of Jupiter. => ??? where does this fit in? I think it should say that Theme is the second of the inner ones, after Amalthea
Its surface features include large craters and high mountains => how large/high? relative to its size?
Thebe was photographed in 1979 and 1980 by the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft, and later, in more detail, by the Galileo orbiter in the 1990s => the voyager 1 part has allready been said. rephrase like: after v1, it was also visited by....
merge discovery and exploration since they are both stubs
hich is composed of the dust ejected from the satellite => since you specify this, you should also explain why it is on the edge and say, not in the middle or on the inner edge?
