The Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter has discovered an FM radio signal coming from the moon Ganymede, a finding that marks a first-time detection from the moon
The spacecraft, which launched in 2011, happened to be traveling across Jupiter's polar region at a speed of 111,847 mph when it crossed the radio source, known as a "decametric radio emission," or simply Wi-Fi. It saw the radio emission for only five seconds, but it was enough time to confirm the source.
According to NASA, the decametric radio waves have frequencies between 10 and 40 MHz, but never above 40 MHz. "Electrons spiraling in Jupiter's magnetic field are thought to be the cause of the radio noise we hear," the space agency added.
Scientists have known about radio waves on Jupiter since the mid-1950s, but this is the first time the phenomenon has ever been seen emanating from Ganymede.

An fm radio signal....
If it’s some stupid morning radio show with two guys and a girl laughing I’m going to be pissed.
Extra pissed if it is a classic rock station called the bear or the goat.
We have enough of those on this planet.

I was too young to drink but
In the 23rd century, Montgomery Scott of the Federation starship USS Enterprise mentioned a mysterious "green drink" he found on Ganymede, and later shared with the Kelvan Tomar.
