    The four Galilean satellites of Jupiter, Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, comprise an orderly set of worlds that makes the Jupiter system look like a miniature solar system. Io, the innermost of Jupiter's moons, is the densest, while the most distant, Callisto, is the iciest and least dense, a trend in composition that mirrors the trend seen. NASA’s exploration spans the universe. Observing the sun and its effects on Earth. Delving deep into our solar system. Looking beyond to worlds around other stars. Probing the mysterious structures and origins of our universe. Everywhere imaginable, NASA is out there.
