Stretching forces shaped Jupiter moon’s surface, laboratory model suggests

8 julio 2014

Processes that shaped the ridges and troughs on the surface of Jupiter’s icy moon Ganymede are likely similar to tectonic processes seen on Earth, according to a team of researchers. To arrive at this conclusion, the team subjected physical models made of clay to stretching forces that simulate tectonic action.
