GANYMEDE LARGEST MOON OF JUPITER – Ganymede is the largest moon of Jupiter and in the Solar System, and the only moon known to have a magnetosphere, and it displays aurorae at times. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope was the first to discover an underground saltwater ocean on Ganymede, and this subterranean ocean is thought to have more water than all the water on the Earth’s surface. Scientists now estimate that the ocean is 100 kilometres thick – 10 times deeper than Earth's oceans – and is buried under a 150-kilometre crust of mostly ice, and releases methane plumes. It is thought that this deep underground sea could harbour life.

Tell me more about Amateur Radio
Radio Amateurs, or "Hams" use two-way radio communication to make contact with other radio amateurs all over the world. They are even able to use satellites and on occasion speak with astronauts. Radio Hams can do this from home or while mobile in cars, boats or on foot.
Radio Hams have a full range or communication modes at their disposal. These include plain voice, Morse code, numerous digital computer modes and even graphical modes like television. As a licensed amateur radio operator you will be able to join in experiments using all these modes.
Amateur radio can be enjoyed by young and old, male and female, even the most severely disabled can make friends around the world from their own home. This hobby knows no boundaries.
