Tides of Fire (Original)

Jupiter seen from volcanic Io. Acrylic painting from 1996. This picture shows Jupiter seen from the surface of its closest Galilean moon, Io.Because Io is so close to Jupiter, it is constantly engaged in a tug-of-war with the planet’s considerable gravity. On Earth, the Moon’s gravitational pull, and to a lesser extent the Sun’s, are responsible for the oceans’ tides. However, on Io, the Jupiter-induced tides are so strong that the little moon is literally being turned inside out – in the form of volcanoes. Io is the most volcanically active object known to exist in the entire Solar System. A slightly modified version of this image made the cover of the May 2000 issue of the US magazine Asimov’s Science Fiction.
