Approximately 200 yachts competed at this year’s edition of the Bernetti Lombardini Cup.
Researchers announced at the European Planetary Science Congress in Madrid on Tuesday that the liquid water found on one of Jupiter's moons may not always be in that state.
The Russian space agency is considering participating in a developing project to send a spacecraft to Jupiter.
In one of the most adventurous races in the history of the Giraglia Rolex Cup, Esimit Europa 2 smashed the existing record by 3 hours and 6 minutes.
A new study finds that the pattern of heat coming from volcanoes on Io's surface disposes of the generally-accepted model of internal heating. The heat pouring out of Io's hundreds of erupting volcanoes indicates a complex, multi-layer source.
In a fjord in Canada scientists have found a landscape similar to one of Jupiter's icy moons: Europa. It consists of a frozen and sulphurous environment, where sulphur associated with Arctic bacteria offer clues for the upcoming missions in the search for traces of life on Europa.
Europa Sports Products has begun distributing the M-1 Formula, a 100% all natural circulatory enhancer designed to increase blood flow during exercise and sexual activity. Austin,
The European Space Agency (ESA) has selected a Jupiter probe to be its next "large class" space endeavor after a five-year-long competition.
The Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer (JUICE) proposal to study the moons of Jupiter is leading the pack of proposed missions.
Europe is, by regulation, one of the world’s seven continents. Consisting of the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, Europe is generally divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Black and Caspian Seas, and the waterways that connect the Black and Aegean Seas. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean towards the north, Atlantic Ocean to the west, Mediterranean Sea to the south, and the Black Sea and connected waterways to the southeast....
Galileo Probe -- The Galileo probe was an unmanned probe sent by NASA to study the planet Jupiter and its moons. Named after the astronomer Galileo Galilei, it was launched on October 18 1989 by the Space Shuttle Atlantis and arrived at Jupiter on December 7 1995. Galileo's launch had been significantly delayed by the hiatus in Space Shuttle launches that occurred after the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and new safety protocols that were implemented as a result forced Galileo to use...
Jupiter's Moon Ganymede -- Ganymede is the largest satellite in the solar system with a diameter of 5,268 km (3270 miles). It is larger than Mercury and Pluto, and three-quarters the size of Mars. If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of orbiting Jupiter, it would easily be classified as a planet. If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of Jupiter it could be classified as a planet. Like Callisto, Ganymede is most likely composed of a rocky core with a water/ice mantle and a crust of rock and...
Jupiter's Moon Europa -- Europa is a puzzle. The sixth largest moon in our Solar System, Europa confounds and intrigues scientists. Few bodies in the Solar System have attracted as much scientific attention as this moon of Jupiter because of its possible subsurface ocean of water. The more we learn about this icy moon, the more questions we have. Because the nature of science is to ask questions, we cannot resist the mystery of Europa and its potential for possessing an ocean. Early...
Jupiter's Moon Io -- Looking like a giant pizza covered with melted cheese and splotches of tomato and ripe olives, Io is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Volcanic plumes rise 300 kilometers (190 miles) above the surface, with material spewing out at nearly half the required escape velocity. A bit larger than Earth's moon, Io is the third largest of Jupiter's moons, and the fifth one in distance from the planet. Although Io always points the same side toward...
