Moon of the Day - Ganymede

Today's moon is Ganymede, the last of Jupiter's four Galilean satellites.

Ganymede is the largest moon in the Solar System, and is the only moon to have a magnetosphere. It also has a tenuous oxygen atmosphere, and is believed to have an underground ocean of saltwater, buried some 200 kilometers beneath the surface.
