To those of you who celebrate the holiday, merry Christmas! I hope Santa was good to you.

Happy Christmas on Mars!

This was so cute I had to repost it -- and record it too.

Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 24: Ganymede

Emily Lakdawalla • December 24, 2009

I think if you polled most space fans about their favorite moons of Jupiter, Ganymede would come in a consistent third behind Europa and Io. It's just not fair.

Emily Lakdawalla • December 21, 2009

Miranda is the one moon of Uranus for which we have very good images from Voyager 2, and that was a stroke of luck, because low-resolution shots of all of Uranus' moons would have told us that it was, geologically speaking, the most dramatic of the five biggest ones.
