Hey Space Bloggers!
Congratulations to Dr. Spaceman for getting us off to a great start! After seeing those crazy, enormous Northern Lights on day 1, he thought Destination 11 might be a planet. Excellent thinking! He must know that such aurorae are caused by the solar wind flowing across a magnetic field. The sun provides the wind, but it takes something BIG, like say a planet, to form a magnetosphere.
But which one? (you asked yourself) After all, there are four. Then you noticed another clue in the limmer-iddle; D11 said he was ‘not the biggest’. Okay, that knocks out Jupiter. And we are down to three.
From day 3‘s post you cleverly deduced that the ‘arms’ Galileo saw were really rings. You then checked and found out that, while all the gas giants have them, only one has bright reflective rings that can be seen from Earth.
That’s right, Space Bloggers. You guessed it. Destination Eleven is none other than that lighter than water, sparkling gem among giants…
Check back HERE next Tuesday for a brand new Space Game destination!
