The Editor:   The creature looks Satan like ISC, should our readers be concerned for their safety ?

Devil Cat:  These creatures are amoral and with out souls.  Just be careful around centers of political power and wealth, those areas are their natural habitat.  If you see any of these creatures throw copies of the Constitution and twenty dollar bills at them.  What they really want are your rights, and your money.

Ganymede: The Largest Moon
Image Credit: NASA, JPL, Galileo Probe

Explanation: What does the largest moon in the Solar System look like? Jupiter‘s moon Ganymede, larger than even Mercury and Pluto, has an icy surface speckled with bright young craters overlying a mixture of older, darker, more cratered terrain laced with grooves and ridges. The large circular feature on the upper right, called Galileo Regio, is an ancient region of unknown origin. Ganymede is thought to have an ocean layer that contains more water than Earth and might contain life. Like Earth’s Moon, Ganymede keeps the same face towards its central planet, in this case Jupiter. The featured image was taken about 20 years ago by NASA’s Galileo probe, which ended its mission by diving into Jupiter’s atmosphere in 2003. Currently, NASA’s Juno spacecraft orbits Jupiter and is studying the giant planet’s internal structure, among many other attributes.
