Elena discusses the sequence of meetings, along with details of ships, personnel, and current activities aimed to bring about open contact with humanity. She explains why open contact is more likely to succeed today than the mid-1970s when the Council of Nine and the 24 Civilizations/Intergalactic Confederation first began communicating with Gene Roddenberry and others about mass landings.
2 of Jupiter's Moons Ganymede and Io
Ganymede, a satellite of Jupiter, is the largest and most massive of the Solar System's moons. The ninth-largest object of the Solar System, it is the largest without a substantial atmosphere. Ganymede was discovered in 1610 by astronomer Galileo Galilei and is named for the mythical Greek son of a King who was carried to the sky by Zeus posing as an eagle.
Io is the most volcanically active world in the Solar System, with hundreds of volcanoes, some erupting lava fountains dozens of kilometres high. Io is caught in a tug-of-war between Jupiter's massive gravity and the smaller but precisely timed pulls from two neighbouring moons that orbit farther from Jupiter — Europa and Ganymede.
