New photographs and space physics observations from Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede, reveal that the satellite has more in common with the solar system's planets than just size. According to investigators for NASA's Galileo mission, the icy moon appears to have its own magnetosphere and also shows signs of tectonic activity. Researchers announced their discoveries at a July 10 press conference at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
