Out of the 63 moons of Jupiter discovered so far, four satellites are really very large. They are Ganymede, Calisto, Europa, and Io. They were discovered by Galileo in the year and so named after him as the Galilean satellites. Jupiter's volcanically active moon Io is a strong source of plasma in its own right, and loads Jupiter's magnetosphere with as much as 1, kg of new material every second. Strong volcanic eruptions on Io emit huge amounts of sulfur dioxide, a major part of which is dissociated into atoms and ionized by electron impacts and, to a lesser extent, solar ultraviolet radiation, producing ions of sulfur and ered by: Pioneer

Three massive volcanic eruptions occurred on Jupiter’s moon Io, a satellite the size of Earth’s moon, within a two-week period last August, leading astronomers to speculate that these presumed rare outbursts, which can send material hundreds of miles above the surface, might be much more common than previously thought.

The plasma co-rotating with Jupiter impinges on the trailing side of the Ganymedian magnetosphere much like the solar wind impinges on the Earth's magnetosphere. The main difference is the speed of plasma flow—supersonic in the case of Earth and subsonic in the case of l period: d. The solar wind that flows around a planet is a stream of plasma coming from the Sun. Jupiter's magnetosphere is especially large, 10 times the diameter of the Sun, and its magnetotail, the part of.

"Studies of plasma flow past Jupiters satellite Io": progress report: second year (2/07//06/97): NASA contract: NASW In this chapter we present a review of plasma transport in the magnetospheres of the rapidly rotating outer planets Jupiter and Saturn with emphasis on the effects of magnetic reconnection.

Unlike the Earth’s magnetosphere where reconnection is the dominant transport mechanism, atmospherically driven corotation dominates at Jupiter and by: 2.

At Jupiter, it is hypothesized that Io’s volcanic plasma carried out of the plasma torus is transported radially outward in the rotating magnetosphere and is recurrently ejected as plasmoid via tail reconnection. The plasmoid ejection is likely associated with particle energization, radial plasma flow, and transient auroral by: 9.

Io, innermost of the four large moons (Galilean satellites) discovered around Jupiter by the Italian astronomer Galileo in It was probably also discovered independently that same year by the German astronomer Simon Marius, who named it after Io of Greek mythology.

Studies of Plasma Flow Past Jupiters Satellite Io. February Jon A. Linker; We have investigated the interaction of Io, Jupiter's innermost Galilean satellite, with the Io plasma torus, and.

Jupiter’s plasma torus co-rotates with the planet at the same distance and in the same direction as Io’s orbit, but at a speed of 75 km s-1 in comparison to Io’s orbital speed of 17 km s Io is composed primarily of rocky material with very little iron.

Io is located within an intense radiation belt of electrons and ions trapped in Jupiter's magnetic field. As the magnetosphere rotates with Jupiter, it sweeps past Io and strips away about 1, kilograms (1 ton) of material per second.

The material forms a torus, a doughnut. On our planet, most of the raining electrons and ions come from the solar wind or from our planet's ionosphere.

On Jupiter, many of them come from volcanoes: hot belching vents on Jupiter's moon Io fill the giant planet's magnetosphere with ionized sulfur and oxygen.

Ions from Io are accelerated by local electric fields toward Jupiter's auroral zone.Io's volcanic ejecta also produce a large plasma torus around Jupiter.

Io played a significant role in the development of astronomy in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was discovered in January by Galileo Galilei, along with the other Galilean ered by: Galileo Galilei.Voyager 1 and 2 were sent to Jupiter in These satellites were sent to study the moons, ring system, water and ice.
