A new laboratory model suggested that the ridges and troughs shaped on the surface of Jupiter`s icy moon Ganymede were formed the same way as Earth`s tectonic process.
Researchers have revealed that the largest moon in our solar system, a companion to Jupiter named Ganymede, may have ice and oceans stacked up in several layers like a club sandwich.
The US Geological Survey has completed the first global geological map of Ganymede, Jupiter`s largest moon and also the largest moon in the solar system.
Russia`s Jupiter research project, which includes a lander mission to its moon Ganymede, will receive its first funding next year, a space agency official said.
Europa, Callisto and Jupiter`s largest moon, Ganymede, are all believed to have liquid oceans beneath their icy shells.
