    The four largest and best known moons are grouped known as the Galileo Satellites but individually as Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, first seen in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. Each moon is very different. Io has the most volcanic activity of any surface in the solar system. Its surface is covered in sulfur. Io orbits Jupiter in an elliptical orbit and Jupiter’s gravity creates high waves on the moon. Europa’s surface as primarily water ice and is potentially inhabitable. Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system; so large that it is the only moon to have it own magnetic field. Callisto’s surface is covered in craters. Each of the four moons has a unique inner layer structure. Three fourths of the moons have an influence on each other that NASA describes as “Io is in a tug-of-war with Ganymede and Europa.” Ganymede has twice the orbit period as Europa. Europa takes twice as long to orbit Jupiter as…

    The first moon, Io, is the closest to Jupiter of the Jovian moons, however, it is Jupiter’s fifth closest moon orbiting at roughly 262,000mi. Though it is slightly larger than our own moon, for Jupiter is it only the third largest. Ganymede, Io, and Europa are in orbital resonance with Jupiter, and this causes their orbits to become elliptical. Io’s orbit takes it through Jupiter’s magnetic lines of force causing it to generate electrical currents. These currents travel along Jupiter’s magnetic…
