Callisto

Callisto is a moon of Jupiter and the third largest in the solar system. The surface of this moon is heavily cratered. It is different from the other three Galilean moons because it orbits further away and does not form a part of the orbital resonance. Like our moon, it is tidally locked with the planet so that only one half faces it at all times.

What is the Callisto Effect?

As far as I can tell, the Callisto Effect is purely from the Douglas Preston/Lincon Child novel Relic. They take many real theories and scientific ideas and elaborate them for fictional novels. The Callisto Effect stated that evolution sometimes creates a "monstrosity" or super-predator that is so effective, it causes the extinction of other species around it, before dying out itself.

What is the temperature of Jupiter's moon?

Ganymede and Io have an average surface temperature of 110º K (-163.15º C), Europa's is 103 K (-171.15º C), and Callisto's is is 134º K (-139.15º C). We know little about the temperature of the ocean's beneath the ice on Ganymede, Europa, and Callisto, however we can guess that there is some kind of heat generated from tidal heating.

Temperature of the moon in the sun?

The moon has no atmosphere (well, not enough to matter) and so it experiences extreme temperature changes since there's no atmosphere to smooth things out. Noontime temperatures on the moon can reach as high as 123 degrees Celsius; at night it can drop as low as -233 degrees Celsius (in the south polar basin, which is permanently in the shade).

Where in Iowa would tourists would want to go?

To name a few; The State Fair and the Botanical Gardens in Des Moines are interesting. The loess hills in western Iowa are pretty at different times of the year and you can drive the length of them (a three hour drive) along Interstate 29. The entire Missouri flyway on the west side, and the Missouri flyway on the east side have millions of migrating waterfowl and eagles in spring and fall.

Is Jupiter volcanically active?

You might be thinking of one of Jupiter's moons, Io, which is the most volcanically active body in our solar system. Jupiter is a gas planet, which probably has a rocky core at the center, but we do not know much about it. There is evidence of volcanism on Earth's Moon, Venus, and Mars. There might be volcanism on Saturn's moons Enceladus and Titan, Neptune's moon Triton, and Jupiter's moon Europa. I have not read anything indicating there is volcanism on Jupiter.

Why would you want or not want to go to heaven?

I would not want to go to anyplace that have no women. (Revelation14:1-4)

"The hundred and forty and four thousand ... which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins."

Only 144,000 celibate men will be saved. (Those who were not "defiled with women.")

What is the definition of Callisto?

Callisto is a moon of the planet Jupiter, discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. It is the third-largest moon in the Solar System and the second largest in the Jovian system, after Ganymede. Callisto has about 99% the diameter of the planet Mercury but only about a third of its mass. It is the fourth Galilean moon of Jupiter by distance, with an orbital radius of about 1 880 000 kilometers. It does not form part of the orbital resonance that affects three inner Galilean satellites-Io, Europa and Ganymede-and thus does not experience appreciable tidal heating. Callisto rotates synchronously with its orbital period, so the same face is always turned toward Jupiter. Callisto's surface is less affected by Jupiter's magnetosphere than the other inner satellites because it orbits farther away. Callisto is composed of approximately equal amounts of rock and ices, with a mean density of about 1.83 g/cm3. Compounds detected spectrally on the surface include water ice, carbon dioxide, silicates, and organics. Investigation by the Galileo spacecraft revealed that Callisto may have a small silicate core and possibly a subsurface ocean of liquid water at depths greater than 100 kilometers. The surface of Callisto is heavily cratered and extremely old. It does not show any signatures of subsurface processes such as plate tectonics, earthquakes or volcanoes, and is thought to have evolved predominantly under the influence of impacts. Prominent surface features include multi-ring structures, variously shaped impact craters, and chains of craters (catenae) and associated scarps, ridges and deposits. At a small scale, the surface is varied and consists of small, bright frost deposits at the tops of elevations, surrounded by a low-lying, smooth blanket of dark material.[4] This is thought to result from the sublimation-driven degradation of small landforms, which is supported by the general deficit of small impact craters and the presence of numerous small knobs, considered to be their remnants. The absolute ages of the landforms are not known. Callisto is surrounded by an extremely thin atmosphere composed of carbon dioxide and probably molecular oxygen, as well as by a rather intense ionosphere. Callisto is thought to have formed by slow accretion from the disk of the gas and dust that surrounded Jupiter after its formation. Its slowness and the lack of tidal heating prevented rapid differentiation. The slow convection in the interior of Callisto, which commenced soon after formation, led to partial differentiation and possibly to the formation of a subsurface ocean at a depth of 100-150 kilometers and a small, rocky core. The likely presence of an ocean within Callisto indicates that it can or could harbor life. However, this is less likely than on nearby Europa.[18] Various space probes from Pioneers 10 and 11 to Galileo and Cassini have studied the moon. Callisto has long been considered the most suitable place for a human base for future exploration of the system of Jupiter.[19]

Does Jupiter have the most moons?

Jupiter has the most moons, 63.

Exactly? Let's see, what day is this today? As of last count at nineplanets.org, there are 63 moons of Jupiter.

However, more are being discovered every time we send a space probe there, so there may be a dozen or more that haven't been seen yet. For years, the count was "12", based on Earth-bound telescopes, but between the Hubble, the Voyager probes and the recent flyby missions, we have discovered smaller and smaller moons that had been beneath notice.

It seems likely that there are a great many tiny moons of the outer planets that have not yet been catalogued.
