Could We Colonize The Big Cratered Moon Callisto?
we will deal with Callisto, one of the main moons of the gaseous giant planet Jupiter, and we will try to understand if its hypothetical future colonization is feasible or not.
Callisto, together with Io, Europa and Ganymede, is one of the medicean satellites, and was discovered by Galileo Galilei on 13th January 1610, who reported his observations in his work Sidereus Nuncius.
These satellites are called “medicean” because the Italian astronomer dedicated them to Cosimo II De Medici, his benefactor.
Galileo observed the medicean satellites with a very rudimentary telescope and with a very small field of view: even today one wonders how he managed to discover them, given that in this very small field of view they could hardly see all four at the same time. Could we colonize it?
