Throughout its time studying Jupiter, NASA’s Juno spacecraft has sent back some incredible images. And now, to cap off its work in 2018, it’s providing us a glimpse of the incredible volcanic activity on one of Jupiter’s moons. Io, Jupiter’s fourth largest moon, has over 400 active volcanos and is the most geologically active body in the solar system.
