NASA's Juno To Get a Close Look At Jupiter's Moon Ganymede

On Monday, NASA's Juno spacecraft will come within 645 miles of the surface of Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede. "The flyby will be the closest a spacecraft has come to the solar system's largest natural satellite since NASA's Galileo spacecraft made its penultimate close approach back on May 20, 2000," reports Phys.Org. From the report: Along with striking imagery, the solar-powered spacecraft's flyby will yield insights into the moon's composition, ionosphere, magnetosphere, and ice shell. Jun...

Marc-Antoine Barrois B683 Extrait - Magnified and Improved

Last year, French fashion designer Marc-Antoine Barrois launched a flanker of his celebrated debut perfume B683. This time, the leathery and spicy composition was made as a more intense, stronger, deeper and warmer version with B683 Extrait. The perfumer for all compositions in the Barrois portfolio (there are 3, counting Ganymede) has been Quentin Bisch from Givaudan. "With this reinterpreta...

Puzzling Six-Exoplanet System With Rhythmic Movement Challenges Theories of How Planets Form

Astronomers have used a combination of telescopes to reveal a system consisting of six exoplanets, five of which are locked in a rare rhythm around their central star. "The researchers believe the system could provide important clues about how planets, including those in the Solar System, form and evolve," reports Phys.Org. From the report: The first time the team observed TOI-178, a star some 200 light-years away in the constellation of Sculptor, they thought they had spotted two planets going ...

Strange FM signal broadcasting from Ganymede!

Something interesting is occurring on Ganymede. NASA recently extended the life of two of its planetary discovery missions, including the Juno mission to Jupiter. Now it’s come to light Juno has discovered an FM signal emanating from one of the gas giant’s moons, Ganymede. The discovery is not an indication of extraterrestrial life, but it is fascinating nonetheless, given it’s the first time it’s been discovered coming from the celestial satellite. Get the full details over on Fox new...

Watch the orbits of dozens of Jupiter's moons

This map of 63 of Jupiter's 79 known moons is fascinating. There is a cluster orbiting relatively close that includes many of the best-known moons, then a significant dead space before the remainder appear: We start close in to Jupiter showing relatively fast moving inner moons that are generally in the same orbital plane including the so called 'Galilean moons': Europa, Io, Ganymede, and Callisto. — Read the rest

Biggest impact crater in the solar system spotted on Ganymede

Huge ring-like structure on Ganymede's surface may have been caused by violent impact

Image data reanalysis by researchers from Kobe University and the National Institute of Technology, Oshima College have revealed that ancient tectonic troughs are concentrically distributed across almost the entire surface of Ganymede. Computer simulation results suggest that this giant crater could have resulted from the impact of an asteroid with a 150km radius. If so, this the largest impact structure identified in the solar system so far.

The North Poles of Jupiter's Moon Ganymede Probed by NASA Spacecraft

"NASA's Juno Jupiter probe has captured unprecedented views of the largest moon in the solar system," reports During a close flyby of Jupiter on Dec. 26, 2019, Juno mapped the north polar regions of the icy satellite Ganymede in infrared light, something no other spacecraft had done before. The data, which Juno gathered using its Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument, show that Ganymede's northern reaches are very different than locales closer to the equator of the moon, w...

Pluto and five moons in our solar system have more water than Earth

There is less water on planet Earth than on Pluto, as revealed in this graphic by NASA's Steve Vance (bio). Moreover, five moons orbiting other worlds in our solar system—Europa, Triton, Callisto, Titan and Ganymede—have more. Ganymede has nearly 40 times as much water as planet Earth!

Subsurface ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa deemed potentially 'habitable'

Scientists have figured out how the subsurface ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa may have formed and determined that this vast expanse of water may have been able to support microbial life in the past. Europa, with an ocean hidden beneath a thick shell of ice, long has been viewed as a potential habitat for extraterrestrial life in our solar system, alongside other candidates such as Mars and Saturn's moon Enceladus. The effect of tides caused by Europa's gravitational interactions with Jupiter -...

New, detailed pictures of planets, moons, and comets are neither photos nor animations — they're made using data from 50 years of NASA missions

Visualizing distant planets, moons, and comets in our solar system can be challenging. Typically, astronomers use images from NASA missions or artistic renditions to show what space objects look like. Now, planetariums like the American Museum of Natural History's Hayden Planetarium are turning to a new method — data visualization — to depict our solar system. This helps viewers see planets and moons in unprecedented detail. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. For many years, ...

Complicated Moon

Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, orbits the giant planet in this artist's concept. Ganymede generates its own magnetic field, which produces weak auroral displays similar to the northern lights here on Earth. The magnetic field may be generated by the motions of a salty ocean below Ganymede's icy surface. The magnetic field interacts with Jupiter's to enhance Jupiter's own aurorae.

How ‘The Expanse’ Season 4 Compares to the Book It’s Based On

Fans of the television series The Expanse likely know that the show is based on the books written by James S. A. Corey, the pen name of co-authors Ty Frank and Daniel Abraham. Each season roughly follows the story from one of the books, and Season 4 is no different; the main plot of the show taken from Cibola Burn , the fourth book in what’s expected to be a nine-volume book series (the eighth book, Tiamat’s Wrath , was published this year, and the final book is expected to come out in...

15 Constellations Every Man Should Know (And How to Find Them)

“Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie I was recently on a camping trip in the mountains of Colorado, and one of the highlights was definitely being able to lay on a picnic table and try to find constellations without the intrusive lights of my home in Denver. While I could easily pick out a few of the better known constellations, I was disappointed that I...
