Continuing with our Definitive Guide to Terraforming, Universe Today is happy to present our guide to terraforming Saturn's Moons. Beyond the inner Solar System and the Jovian Moons, Saturn has numerous satellites that could be transformed. But should they be?

How Do We Terraform Jupiter's Moons?

Fans of Arthur C. Clarke may recall how in his novel, 2010: Odyssey Two (or the movie adaptation called 2010: The Year We Make Contact), an alien species turned Jupiter into a new star. In so doing, Jupiter's moon Europa was permanently terraformed, as its icy surface melted, an atmosphere formed, and all the life living in the moon's oceans began to emerge and thrive on the surface. As we explained in a previous video ("Could Jupiter Become a Star") turning Jupiter into a star is not exactly doa

Another Arizona Trip

My father came to visit in March from Australia, and I had the opportunity to take him to Arizona for a one-week tour. We explored the Grand Canyon, Phoenix, Sedona, old Route 66 and various points in between. A highlight was spending an evening at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff.
