- A) Jupiter
- B) Saturn
- C) Mars
- D) Neptune
Correct Answer is Jupiter.
For the first time, astronomers have uncovered evidence of water vapor in the atmosphere of Ganymede, one of the moons of the planet Jupiter.
New and archival Hubble Space Telescope data have revealed water vapour for the first time in the atmosphere of Jupiter’s moon Ganymede.
When ice on the moon’s surface changes from solid to gas, water vapour emerges, according to a study published in the journal Nature Astronomy
As a result of the extreme cold, water on the surface has frozen into solid ice.
Due to Ganymede’s ocean’s location approximately 160 kilometres below the crust, the water vapour would not represent this ocean’s evaporation.
