So, does anyone know what Jupiter's moons are named for?
The practice was to name newly discovered moons of Jupiter after lovers and favorites of the god Jupiter (Zeus) and, since 2004, also after their descendants.[32] All of Jupiter's satellites from XXXIV (Euporie) are named after daughters of Jupiter or Zeus.[32]

Does anyone remember the name of the probe sent to Jupiter to check out the satellites and Jupiter itself?
Juno. Jupiter's Wife's name. They sent his wife, to check on him with his mistresses....

Spectacular spiral galaxy NGC 1032

A handful of other galaxies can be seen lurking in the background, scattered around the narrow stripe of NGC 1032. Many are oriented face-on or at tilted angles, showing off their glamorous spiral arms and bright star-studded cores.
