Planetary Science Research Discoveries

Planetary scientists sharing ideas and discoveries.

Planetary Science Research Discoveries (PSRD) is an educational site sharing the latest research by NASA-sponsored scientists on meteorites, asteroids, planets, moons, and other materials in our Solar System. The website is supported by the Cosmochemistry Program of NASA's Science Mission Directorate and by Hawai'i Space Grant Consortium and is a vital link for planetary and space sciences, and for learning how science works.

15 FEB 00 Jupiter's Hot, Mushy Moon
by G. Jeffrey Taylor
Very high lava flow temperatures on Io lead some scientists to propose that the satellite's interior is a swirling cauldron of partially molten rock.

24 SEPT 98 Europa's Salty Surface
by G. Jeffrey Taylor
Jupiter's moon Europa has salt deposits on its surface that may be the products of evaporation of water erupted from an ocean beneath the satellite's icy crust.

27 APR 98 Big Mountain, Big Landslide on Jupiter's Moon, Io
by Linda M. V. Martel
Thrust faulting and uplift of a large block of Io's crust may have created a mountain and the landslide on it.
