    Sabine Stanley, in Encyclopedia of the Solar System (Third Edition), Ganymede. Ganymede's magnetic field was discovered by the Galileo mission in the mids. Although magnetic induction signatures were found for Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, resulting from currents generated in salt-water oceans in these bodies, Ganymede was the sole Galilean satellite to demonstrate a self. Ganymede. Ganymede is the largest planetary satellite in the solar system. With a diameter of km, it is about 8% larger than the planet Mercury. It is also the only moon in the Solar System with its own magnetosphere. Ganymede was discovered on January 7, by Galileo Galilei, along with Io, Europa, and Callisto. Callisto.

    The volcanic action on Enceladus led scientists to suggest that a liquid water ocean lies under the surface of this moon, and is feeding the geysers seen by Cassini. Enceladus is thought to be heated from within by either radioactive heating (the decay of radioactive elements in the core) or tidal flexing as Saturn’s immense gravity pulls on. Enceladus (/ ɛ n ˈ s ɛ l ə d ə s /; en-SEL-ə-dəs) is the sixth-largest moon of is about kilometers ( mi) in diameter, about a tenth of that of Saturn's largest moon, dus is mostly covered by fresh, clean ice, making it one of the most reflective bodies of the Solar uently, its surface temperature at noon only reaches − °C (− °F), far Discovered by: William Herschel.

    Saturn’s ice moon Enceladus is being slowly devoured by the gas giant’s rings, according to a series of new NASA images that show ghostly tendrils escaping the moon’s cryo-volcanoes and Missing: Ganymede. Enceladus is the sixth largest moon of was discovered in by the British astronomer William Herschel (who also discovered the planet Uranus).Enceladus is a medium-sized moon made primarily of ice. Its orbit is fairly close to Saturn and is within the giant planet's outermost ring (the E ring).

The different geologic histories of Ganymede and Callisto have been a continuing puzzle. Impact craters, volcanic deposits, and tectonic structures are all common on the surface of Ganymede.

Io, Jupiter's moon has active volcanoes of lava from magma caused due to tidal forces from Jupiter and large moons like Ganymede and Callisto. Triton, a moon of Neptune, and Enceladus, a moon of Saturn both are active with Cryrovolcanoes.

Volcanogenic craters are recognized by their structure, distribution, and nature of their walls. Saturn's rings are extremely old, possibly older than four billion years. The particles in Saturn's E ring probably come from volcanic eruptions on Enceladus. Pluto is probably one of the largest of the Kuiper Belt bodies beyond Neptune.

Pluto is visible to the naked eye on extremely dark nights. Enceladus is a moon of Saturn, with a mean diameter of kilometers, seven times smaller than the Earth’s Moon; it is covered in ice, but seems .Ganymed (ok Jupiter III) is de drüdde un gröttste vun de veer groten Maanden vun den Planeten d is ok gliektietig de gröttste Maand vun’t hele Sünnsystem vör Titan, grötter sogor ok as de Planet d höört to de Maanden, de vun Galileo Galilei opdeckt worrn sünd un de dorüm as Galileische Maanden betekent warrt.
