That's a fantastic picture Bren.

 You're obviously passionate about it Bren .Can you give us a brief synopsis about Ganymede ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganymede_%28moon%29

Ganymede is icy, with salt water deep within and a magnetosphere, the only moon with one. That says something about the core.

I loved dreams and visions as a boy and the magnificent concept of other worlds then to see Mars, another real place, amazed me. I wondered what it was made of, and of course, is there life there, water, air...?

The wonder of phys chem and the awesome size and detail of space, storms on Jupiter, the scale, Earth Jupiter, and the sun and blue stars elsewhere... Awesome and impressive.
