It is certainly an interesting place. It has a magnetosphere, and probably a molten core, almost like a frozen Earth, or an Earth in waiting.
All the space programmers need to do is give it a tow nearer to the Sun, and it's big, as big as our Moon, but it's not officially a planet while it's
a satellite of Jupiter, hey! maybe it was a planet at one time until that big gasbag Jupiter came *around.
Just to add, the Juno satellite will be around Jupiter in 2016 if all goes well, it's going to do some vital statistics of Jupiter, like water and
gravity, and believe it or not it has a camera!
*I'm not sure if it is clear whether Jupiter was around at an early stage to act as the 'Fat Controller' but if you want to speculate on the dodgy
science of the second Sun feel free, since Juno is going to end up the same as Galileo...one small fart for man, one giant leap away from your ass
