The most interesting places in our solar system are now and always have been, the moons of the gas giants.

We haven't even scratched the surface yet...

We need more probes and missions like Cassini. To say it has been a widely successful mission doesn't even begin to do it justice.

The Galileo mission also is having some great successes. I'm hoping it will follow in the footsteps of Cassini and outperform expectations and continue to produce amazing information for us to digest. Like this image and the corresponding data...

That sulfurous tint, those scorch marks and smoke trails.... what a gorgeous and busy image!

Io is a rare beauty indeed! Fire and brimstone made manifest!

It does look kind of like a hand print, doesn't it?



That "handprint" you see is most likely no longer there. Io is so incredibly geologically active that its surface features noticeably change relatively quickly. Most of the features on Io that the Galileo spacecraft took pictures of in the late 1990s and early 2000s are probably gone now.

That is one ugly moon.
The earlier images gave me the creeps. This one doesn't help.

Ugly? No way! That thing is beautiful and vicious. Any moon with active volcanoes is outstanding.

Sure, if you find acne attractive.

True enough, given the scope and scale of the activity.

Io, and places just like it in terms of giving us all those "wow" moments, is why the Space Program--manned and otherwise--is so important.

Sorry to break it to you, but Galileo mission was terminated on September 21st 2003 (after 14 years in space and 8 years in the Jovian system), by sending it into Jupiter's atmosphere at a speed of over 48 kilometers per second (30 mi/s), eliminating the possibility of contaminating local moons with terrestrial bacteria.

Are you saying that it took 13+ years for scientists to construct the high-resolution image shown in the Opening Post?

Hey. Ugly skin is ugly skin.
It's what's underneath that counts.
