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.

What is Jupiter's orbital period?

Period of Jupiter = Tj

Period of earth = Te = 1 year

and its given

(Tj/Te)2 = (5.2)3

(Tj/1)2 = 140.6

Tj = Sqrt(140.6) = 11.85 years ~ 12years

Jupiter's year is approximately 12 Earth years. 1 year on Jupiter is 12 earth years. If you were 48 on earth, you would be 4 years old on Jupiter.

What is unique about ganymede?

Ganymede is unique among solar system moons in that it possesses a significant magnetosphere. This is possibly due to convection within its liquid core.

What is the next to largest moon to ganymede?

there is no moon which is larger than Ganymede in our Solar System. Ganymede is the largest natural satellite (moon) in our Solar System so far to be discovered.

How long does it take Jupiters moon Ganymede to make a full rotation?

It take 7 days to orbit and rotate. This moon has oxygen but it is not enough for living organisms. Of course there is no food, but there is under ground water. Even though there is water it is hard to live without food. There is also gravity and hails. The weather is cold. The nearest planet is Jupiter.

Why Ganymede is an important satellite?

Ganymede is significant in many ways. First of all, it is the largest satellite (in diameter) in our solar system. It also is one of the few satellites to have it's own magnetic field, which interacts curiously with Jupiter's own. Among other things, the surface features and sub-glacial oceans provide fascinating potential for future research.

How do you live with the knowledge that you will never have something you need?

This is a tough one not knowing what the circumstances are. However, when I think of needs, I think of basic needs; The kinds of things we need to exist and survive as human beings. We have basic physiological needs and basic psychological needs. Basic physiological needs include:

* Food

* Water

* Shelter to protect ourselves from the elements.

* Cloths to protect our selves against the elements

Basic psychological needs might include:

* The need for safety and security

* A need for a sense of belonging (or love)

* Self esteem

All the rest can be classified as wants and desires. Still, there is no indication here of what the circumstances are. You have not indicated exactly what this need is. Thus, it is difficult to help you in this situation. Nonetheless, the first thing you must do is develop faith and a positive attitude that circumstances will change for the better and what may appear to be negative now, will be seen as a benefit later. We all go through life's ups and downs, good times and bad times. It's what makes us stronger. I wish I could help you more, but just remember this too will pass.

Ganymede

What is Ganymede made of?

Ganymede is composed of approximately equal amounts of silicate rock and water ice. It is a fully differentiated body with an iron-rich, liquid core. A saltwater ocean is believed to exist nearly 200 km below Ganymede's surface, sandwiched between layers of ice.Its surface is composed of two main types of terrain. Dark regions, saturated with impact craters and dated to four billion years ago, cover about a third of the satellite. Lighter regions, crosscut by extensive grooves and ridges and only slightly less ancient, cover the remainder. The cause of the light terrain's disrupted geology is not fully known, but was likely the result of tectonic activity brought about by tidal heating.

Ganymede is the only satellite in the Solar System known to possess a magnetosphere, likely created through convection within the liquid iron core. The meager magnetosphere is buried within Jupiter's much larger magnetic field and connected to it through open field lines. The satellite has a thin oxygen atmosphere that includes O, O2, and possibly O3 (ozone). Atomic hydrogen is a minor atmospheric constituent. Whether the satellite has an ionosphere associated with its atmosphere is unresolved.

What is the definition of Ganymede?

Ganymede is a natural satellite of Jupiter and the largest natural satellite in the Solar System. Completing an orbit in roughly seven days, it is the seventh satellite and third Galilean satellite from Jupiter. Ganymede participates in a 1:2:4 orbital resonance with the satellites Europa and Io, respectively. It is larger in diameter than the planet Mercury but has only about half its mass. Ganymede is composed primarily of silicate rock and water ice. It is a fully differentiated body with an iron-rich, liquid core.

The satellite has a thin oxygen atmosphere that includes O, O2, and possibly O3 (ozone). Atomic hydrogen is a minor atmospheric constituent. Whether the satellite has an ionosphere to correspond to its atmosphere is unresolved. Ganymede's discovery is credited to Galileo Galilei, who observed it in 1610. The satellite's name was soon suggested by astronomer Simon Marius, for the mythological Ganymede, cupbearer of the Greek gods and Zeus's beloved. Beginning with Pioneer 10, spacecraft have been able to examine Ganymede closely. The Voyager probes refined measurements of its size, while the Galileo craft discovered its underground ocean and magnetic field. A new mission to Jupiter's icy moons, the Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM) is proposed for a launch in 2020.

Who discovered Ganymede?

Ganymede was discovered on January 13th 1610 by Galileo Galilei.

On January 11th he observed what he believed were three stars near Jupiter. The next night he noticed that they had moved. He found a fourth "supposed" star, which turned out to be Ganymede. Galileo in 1609.
