Moon

Europa - The second moon of Jupiter and possible location of life in our solar system

Europa has an icy surface that may hide a layer of warm slush or even liquid water warmed by tidal stretching from the massive gravity of nearby Jupiter. That would make it one of the few places in the Solar System with life-sustaining liquid water.

Callisto - The fourth moon of Jupiter and possible underground ocean

Callisto is the is the outermost of the four largest moons of Jupiter and the most heavily cratered body in the Solar System. It may have a vast water ocean indside. Callisto is among great interest to scientists who are seeking one of the holy grails of the solar system - liquid water.

Ganymede - The third moon of Jupiter and the largest moon in the solar system

Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system, larger even than the planets Mercury and Pluto. However, Mercury has twice the mass of Ganymede; Mercury is made almost entirely of metal and rock, while Ganymede’s metal and rock interior is surrounded by a thick mantle of ice.

IO - First moon of Jupiter & the most volcanically active body in our solar system

IO is innermost of the four largest moons of Jupiter. This sulfurous moon is the most volcanic world in our Solar System. It is peppered with hundreds of volcanoes, several of which might be active at any given moment.
