Loud noises as the two exchange the mike.

Hey, Hey, Hey People are you ready to get this journey started. Come on count down with me as we prepare for take off. Everyone: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and......... Take oooooooooooffffffffffffff!!!

Rattling and shaking from Jup Shuttle while taking off.

Okay, hold your cool people. We will reach Jupiter in appoximately Doing calculations out loud " Ummmmm Jupiter is about five times farther from Earth as Earth is from the sun. Let's see — the distance between Earth and the sun is about 93 million miles, so the distance to Jupiter is about 500 million miles. So since we are traveling thousands of miles per hour, it will take us about ---six years to reach jupiter."

Six years later

Alrightee then people! We have reached our destination. Now, we are traveling along Jupiter's rings, Gossamers and the Main ring. And, in advance I apologize to any of you who may or may not have bad sinus or allergies, becuase these rings are said to be made up of kicked up dust particles from Jupiter. Just joking this shuttle is made to keep all harmful effects out. So, you do not have to worry about dropping dead at any second. (Laughing by self) "Ha Ha Ha Ha H-A H-A H-AAAA. Silence because no one else thought it was funny.But, as you may look on the big screen, you will see from the telescopes on the out side of the shuttle, the four largest moons of Jupiter. These four moons are: Metis, Adrastea, Amlthea and Thebe. As you can tell these moons are not perfectly shaped at all. FYI: Metis is the closest moon to Jupiter as you can see on the screen. It is 25 miles/40 kilometers in diameter, orbits 79,500 miles/128,000 kilometers from Jupiter, has a mass of 9 * 10 kg to the 16th power, it orbits Jupiter in 0.294780 Earth days and was discovered by Stephen Synnott (Voyager 2) in the 1980s. Adrastea is the second closest moon to Jupiter, 12 miles/20 kilometers from Jupiter, within its main ring, Adrastea and Metis are said to be the source of the dust in this ring mass, has a mass of 1.91 * 10 kg to the 16th power, orbits Jupiter in 0.29826 Earth days and was discovered by E. Jewitt and E. Danielson (Voyager 2) in 1979. Amlthea is the third closest moon to Jupiter, reddest object in the solar system, 145 * 91 * 83 miles/232 * 146 * 134 kilometers in diameter, orbits 112,700 miles/181,300 kilometers from Jupiter. It is said that within the faint Gossamer ring, Amalthea and Thebe are likely to provide the dust from the Gossamer ring. Amlthea has a mass of 7.2 * 10 kg to the 21 power, orbits Jupiter in 0.49817905 Earth days and it is in synochronous roation- same side always facing Jupiter, gives off more energy than it receives from the Sun and it was discovered by Edward Emerson Barnard in 1892. Thebe is the fourth closest moon to Jupiter, 68 * 56 miles/110 * 90 kilometers in diameter, orbits 138,000 miles/222,000 kilometers from Jupiter, has a mass on 8 * 10 kg to the 17th power, orbits Jupiter in 0.6745 Earth days and is also in synchronous rotation and was discovered by Stephen Synnott (Voyager 1) in 1980. Now my question to you all is, "Which moon would you prefer to live on?" Well, I would prefer to live on Amlthea. I say this because just imagine living there, everything you see is probably red. If you are not seeing red then something must be wrong with your eye site. I think it would be kool because on Earth almost everything thing has its own specific color. For example, grass-green, sky-blue, dirt-brownish black. But, there everything is red. The only time it would seem red is when there is no sun shining. At night the stars shining would be little red twinkling stars above you. I think it would be cool to live on Amlthea. " Oh My God, is it me or is it hot?" Boy I sure hope you all were smart enough to have packed for cold and hot weather. I say this because Jupiter's stripes and swirls are cold, windy clouds of ammonia and water. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is a giant storm as wide as three Earths. This storm is known to have been going on for hundreds of years. There is dangerous radiation, too. It gets very hot and very cold at times. Talk about bad weather." Scientists think Jupiter's core may be a thick, super hot soup. It might be up to 50,000°F. That is hot!!! Well, good thing this shuttle was specailly made to keep those type of harmful things out of here. Well, time for a rest from all this scientifically stuff, until next time and next journey!!! Thanks everyone and I hope you enjoyed the view and information. I hope to see some of you next year who hunger for more. And left with words of wisdom, "Education expands daily and is for a lifetime!" Well, until next time people! Ne-Ne 23:48, 21 October 2007 (UTC) Summer Ne-Ne 02:43, 12 October 2007 (UTC)SumSum08

Here on Europa things are in a state of chaos. Just recently the Externovae made their way through the surface. Their colonies on the outer crust have disrupted our biocycle. We call ourselves Lochnae as the Externovae call themselves "humans". Our data retrieval team discovered that the Extranovae have decided to extend their colonization downward, into our liquid biosphere. They plan to harvest the heat generated in this subterranean ocean. They require the heat to generate power for light and warmth. For us natives however, light is unnesessary. We possess most of the same senses as the Extranovae, such as smell, touch, taste, and hearing. However, we have no eyes to see with, so we "see" our enviroment in a way similar to that of the Extranovae's sonar. We plan to take no action against the Extranovae. Soon the magnetic feilds of our planet will shift, destroying all of their electromagnetic equipment. They are not yet aware of us Lochnae, and they never will be. B-rock
