Astronomy Cast Epsiode 244: Io Jupiter’s inner Galilean moon

If you want to see one of the strangest places in the Solar System, look no further than Io, Jupiter’s inner Galilean moon. The immense tidal forces from Jupiter keep the moon hotter than hot, with huge volcanoes blasting lava hundreds of kilometres into space.

We really enjoyed this podcast after being recommended it from our Twitter friends Rob Bruce and Nick Bramhall.

 

 

The podcast is really well produced, is recorded live where you can join in at the Google plus hangout, its all factual based and the presenters Fraser Cain and Dr. Pamela Gay are clearly knowledgeable on their subjects. Whats more they also produce their show notes for catching up afterwards (we always like that!):
