Io & a plug for Arthur C Clarke

Now Io is a moon I have not posted on before. Guess I got sort of caught up in the Cassini Mission. Galileo got this shot on a flyby. Io is one of the more volcanically active bodies in the solar system. Very interesting caption to this photo.
I actually first heard of Io in reading "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Arthur C. Clarke.
If you like science fiction and reading he has many good books including "A Fall of Moon Dust" and "Rendezvous With Rama". For those more in to short story reading check out "Wind From the Sun".
