NASA Spots Signs of Twin Volcanic Plumes on Jupiter's Moon Io
Briefly

NASA's Juno orbiter made a second close-up flyby of Io, Jupiter's moon known for its volcanoes. The flyby provided more images of the moon's volcanic landscape, including a double volcanic plume spewing into space, a phenomenon never seen before by Juno.
That must be what Io is like on steroids... it probably smells like those places, too.
The flyby also revealed new lava flows and changes to familiar features on Io. Unlike Earth's moon, Io is constantly changing, offering scientists the opportunity to study its volatile and dynamic nature.
That's the beauty of Io... it changes every day, every minute, every second.
