Surprisingly GanymedeGanymede. bigger MercuryMercuryhas a differentiated structure and substance liquidliquid Which produces a magnetic fieldmagnetic field. It even has a good atmosphere. However, even if it had (almost) all the properties, Ganymede does not have planet status. Because it does not revolve around the sun, but around Jupiter.
This is amazing moonmoonwhich is the largest of Solar systemSolar system, has long attracted the attention of scientists, particularly because of the presence of an ocean of liquid water beneath its frozen surface. However, Ganymede still contains many secrets.
Jupiter affects the nature of Ganymede’s surface
Therefore, the researchers targeted the keen eyes of the James Webb Telescope (JWSTJWST) on this a stara star far. These new observations have revealed amazing details about the composition and thermal properties of Ganymede’s surface.
Results, Submitted to the magazine Astronomy and astrophysicsreveals the presence of water ice containing carbon dioxide2. The James Webb Space Telescope has made it possible to map the distribution of this water ice, identifying the polar regions as the areas with the greatest concentration. This distribution can be affected by interactions between magnetic fields JupiterJupiter And Ganymede.
