The Freezing of Io's Atmosphere During Eclipses of the Sun by Jupiter
Io is a moon of Jupiter which is volcanically active and, in fact, is the most active object in the solar system. This strong volcanism is stimulated by the gravitational interaction between Io and Jupiter. Not only that, Io’s volcanoes emit plumes of SO2 gas extending up to 300 miles (483 km) above the moon’s surface and also produce extensive basaltic lava fields that can flow for hundreds of miles.
Using the Gemini Telescope, researchers discovered that Io's atmosphere collapses as the giant planet casts its shadow over the moon’s surface during daily eclipses. These eclipses are about 2 hours out of each Io-day (about 1.7 Earth days). Clever observations allowed several eclipses and subsequent freezing to be detected.
Join Tony Darnell and Carol Christian as they discuss with Constantine Tsang and John Spencer (Southwest Research Institute) along with Matthew Richter (University of California, Davis) the techniques used to discern this amazing phenomenon in our solar system.

Io's Atmosphere Collapses, Reforms Every Day
The atmosphere on Jupiter's moon Io collapses for two hours each day, according to a new study published in the "Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets"
NASA: Jupiter's Moon Io 'Collapses' In Giant Planet's Shadow
A NASA-funded study has found that the atmosphere of Jupiter’s volcanic moon Io appears to be in constant flux due to the cooling and relative collapse caused by the planet’s daily eclipses.
The atmosphere of Jupiter’s moon, Io, is constantly fluctuating, finds new research.
As a NASA article about it states, “The new study documents atmospheric changes on Io as the giant planet casts its shadow over the moon’s surface during daily eclipses.”
Based on data collected from two separate instruments, the team found that “Io’s atmosphere begins to ‘deflate’ when the temperatures drop from -235 degrees Fahrenheit in sunlight to -270 degrees Fahrenheit during eclipse.”
The news release goes on to explain that “In full eclipse, the atmosphere effectively collapses, as most of the sulfur dioxide gas settles as frost on the moon’s surface. The atmosphere redevelops as the surface warms once the moon returns to full sunlight.”
One of the paper’s authors, John Spencer, is quoted as saying that the research “confirms that Io’s atmosphere is in a constant state of collapse and repair.”
The moon is “the most volcanically active object in the solar system.”
And while the these fluctuations have been suspected for a while, they were observed for the first time in this study thanks to one of the instrument’s ability to measure “the atmosphere using heat radiation.”

USA: NASA RELEASES LATEST PICTURES OF 2 OF JUPITER'S MOONS
NASA has released the latest images of two of Jupiter's moons, taken by its Galileo spacecraft.
The images include the best pictures ever taken of volcanic hot spots on Jupiter's moon, Io.
The Galileo probe has revealed unexpected findings about Jupiter's atmosphere, that may force scientists to rethink how the planet was formed.
The images released on Friday by NASA are the latest taken of two of Jupiter's moons, Io and Europa.
The image of Io on the left was taken by Galileo this summer.
It shows volcanic hot spots and auroral emissions glowing on the dark side of Io.
It is the best and highest resolution image ever taken of the moon's features.
The 1979 Voyager image on the right shows the locations of the hot spots seen in the Galileo image.
False colour has been used to enhance the visibility of certain features in this composite of three images of the Minos Linea region on Jupiter's moon, Europa, taken by Galileo.
The reddish hues represent mottled terrains, while the blue hues represent the icy plains on the moon's surface.
After a six-year 300 (m) million mile journey through the solar system, the Galileo spacecraft reached Jupiter last December.
A probe from the craft entered the harsh, whirling gases of Jupiter's atmosphere and sent back data.
This computerised animation shows the space probe penetrating Jupiter's thickly clouded atmosphere in early December last year.
During the historic descent it sent back a "weather report" and other scientific information.
It remained in the atmosphere for an astounding 58 minutes before it melted and vaporised.
Preliminary findings from the probe's data found the planet to be windier and drier than expected.
It has only half the expected amount of helium and a different cloud structure from what most researchers believed.
Other surprises included lower than expected amounts of heavy elements such as carbon, oxygen and sulphur.
Scientists believe the data will provide clues about our own solar system's beginning and new systems being discovered now.

Jupiter's Moons: Crash Course Astronomy #17
Before moving on from Jupiter to Saturn, we’re going to linger for a moment on Jupiter’s moons. There are 67 known moons, and 4 huge ones that we want to explore in greater detail. Ganymede is the largest - larger, in fact, than any other moon in the solar system and the planet Mercury! Callisto, orbiting the farthest out, is smaller but quite similar to Ganymede in many ways. Io, meanwhile, is most noteworthy for its tremendous volcanic activity. There’s also water on Ganymede and Europa!

Watch a future space probe decend and land on Io, one of Jupiter's 4 largest moons
The Solar System contains at least 176 moons, which orbit six of the eight planets. Mercury and Venus are the only two planets which do not have a moon.
Of the terrestrial planets, Earth has one moon, which we call the Moon; and Mars has two small moons, called Phobos and Deimos.
Once we move into the outer Solar System, the large gas giant planets have many moons. Jupiter is thought to have the most moons with a current total of 67, of which 4 (Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto) are comparable in size to Earth's moon. Next comes Saturn with 62 moons including Titan, a large moon with a thick atmosphere of Methane. Uranus and Neptune also have many moons with 27 and 13 respectively.
Some of the moons in the Solar System were created at the same time as their parent planets, while others may have formed separately, and then been captured when drifting to close to one of the planets.

Jupiter's Moon: Io Rotation - HD
Io is the innermost of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter and, with a diameter of 3,642 kilometers, the fourth-largest moon in the Solar System. It was named after Io, a priestess of Hera who became one of the lovers of Zeus. Nevertheless, it was simply referred to as Jupiter I, or The first satellite of Jupiter, until mid-20th century.
With over 400 active volcanoes, Io is the most geologically active object in the Solar System. Its surface is dotted with more than 100 mountains, some which are taller than Earth's Mount Everest. Unlike most satellites in the outer Solar System (which have a thick coating of ice), Io is primarily composed of silicate rock surrounding a molten iron or iron sulfide core.
Although not proven, recent data from the Galileo orbiter indicates that Io might have its own magnetic field Io has an extremely thin atmosphere made up mostly of sulfur dioxide (SO2). If a surface data or collection vessel were to land on Io in the future, it would have to be extremely tough (similar to the tank-like bodies of the Soviet Venera landers) to survive the radiation and magnetic fields that originate from

NASA Sound of Space - Jupiter's Moon Io
You can download the full mp3 file and more on http://thepiratebay.org/user/Air_Wales/
Although space is a virtual vacuum, this does not mean there is no sound in space. Sound does exist as electromagnetic vibrations. The specially designed instruments on board the various space probes used Plasma Wave antenna to record the vibrations used here, all within the range of human hearing (20-20,000 CPS)
Each planet, moon and ring system has a distinctive "musical" pattern. Listening to this unusual recording has a mysteriously relaxing effect. After a long hard day, you can bring your brainwaves into a slower and meditative state.
In 1989, Dr. Jeffrey D. Thompson, D.C., B.F.A. was approached by representatives working with NASA and JPL to explore a series of powerful recordings which the Voyager I & II Spacecraft had sent back from Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. These recordings seemed to be having a profound effect on the scientists and researchers who were exposed to them. Dr. Thompson was approached as an expert in the field of sound and healing, and especially in his work with "Primordial Sounds. Primordial sounds are human body sounds and nature sounds formatted in special ways to cause a deep response in the subconscious mind. These are extremely useful in all levels of healing. Could the space sounds actually be Primordial Sounds, also from outer space but strangely familiar to us?
Besides Earth, IO is the only other place in our Solar System that we know has volcanic activity. With this in mind experience these amazing "soundscapes" of IO. Listen carefully as what seems to be bells, chimes and "instruments" herald a prelude to more strange and amazing sounds that swirl all around in 3-D space. Listen to what resembles dolphins, whales, wind and choirs.
