Dass die Vulkane auf Io so aktiv sind - heute noch -, erklären Wissenschaftler mit den starken Gezeitenkräften, die auf den Mond wirken. Jupiter ist riesig, Io dagegen vergleichsweise klein. Im Zusammenspiel mit umliegenden Monden und Planeten wird an Io gezerrt und gezogen, dann wieder wird sie gestaucht. Dadurch baut sich viel Energie in ihrem Innern auf.

Neptune is the 8th and last planet of the solar system, as Pluto was categorized as a dwarf-planet a few years ago. Dark, cold, and whipped by supersonic winds, Neptune is the furthest away from the Sun of the hydrogen and helium gas giants in our Solar System. No probe has ever been sent there, and its thick atmosphere acts as a dark veil to the surface below.

A molecule detected in Titan's atmosphere could mean that methane-based life exists in Titan's oceans. This image shows Titan in ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths. Red and green colors indicate where atmospheric methane is absorbing light, while the blue color shows the upper atmospheric haze. NASA researchers have confirmed the existence in Titan's atmosphere of vinyl cyanide, which is an organic compound that could potentially provide the cellular membranes for microbial life on Titan.

Mars a des glaciers cachés sous la poussière

Mars has distinct polar ice caps, but Mars also has belts of glaciers at its central latitudes in both the southern and northern hemispheres. A thick layer of dust covers the glaciers, so they appear as surface of the ground, but radar

Valles Marineris: The Grand Canyon of Mars | Image Credit: Viking Project, USGS, NASA | Mars will look good in Earth's skies over the next few days -- but not this good. To get a view this amazing, a spacecraft had to actually visit the red planet. Running across the image center, though, is one the largest canyons in theSolar System. Tomorrow, Mars and Earth will pass the closest in 11 years, resulting in the red planet being quite noticeable toward the southeast after sunset.

Valles Marineris in Mars is the largest canyon in the Solar System. This photo is compiled from over 100 images taken by the Viking Orbiters.
