Galileo Probe and Jupiter’s Moons

Woke up at 2 pm.  Actually planned to wake up at 7:30 am to watch “The Rock” again but couldn’t get up.  Had a lazy shower and ordered a light snack room service.  Felt good at that time.

The best thing that could happen to me on a Saturday Afternoon was that when I opened my email box, ten messages were waiting for me.  I had some good feedback for my story on McDonald’s.  Sam had quitted the firm.  What a pity.

Surfed the Net for a while looking for “Feminism” staffs.  Kind of interesting and of course, the Galileo Probe Image of Jupiter.  Awesome. Here are the extract from CNN news.

Over the past seven months, Galileo has explored each of Jupiter’s four largest moons.  According to its findings, Io and Europa are made of rock, while Ganymede and Callisto are icy — 60 percent rock and 40 percent ice.

But as scientists understand better what’s inside these moons, Ganymede looks more like Io.  They both have iron cores.

So while on the surface Io and Ganymede are very different objects, their interiors are quite similar.

Ganymede, three-quarter the size of Mars at 3,269 miles across, has ridges, icy grooves and craters that hint at an Earthlike crust that pulls apart and fills in with flowing rock.

Watched the film, “One Fine Day”.  I laughed all the way.  Pity that nobody (esp. my girlfriend) as that would have been a very nice film to watch with your partner.
