      About this Artwork

      Jupiter's moon Ganymede is an anomaly among moons. It is the largest known moon in our solar system (larger than Mercury and Pluto), and the only one that generates its own magnetic field. This attribute produces a phenomenon called aurorae—strips of radiant electrified gas that circle Ganymede’s poles. Because Ganymede is situated so close to its mother planet, any changes to Jupiter’s magnetic field directly affect that of its moon. So when Jupiter’s magnetic field shifts due to the planet’s rotation, Ganymede’s aurorae “rock” back and forth in a sort of cosmic dance. NASA has confirmed that Ganymede has a saltwater ocean lying below its icy exterior, making it a viable location for life to flourish. Ganymede's ocean may bear more liquid than all the water on Earth combined, its subterranean ocean 10 times as deep as Earth’s oceans. Since water is necessary to sustain life, it’s possible that these oceans may confirm the long-suspected presence of life on other planets, or on moons such as Titan and Enceladus.
