Introduction: The internal structures (e.g., core size and composition) of the Galilean satellites cannot be uniquely determined by density and moment-ofinertia values alone. Assumptions about composition, chemistry, and thermal structure must be made, and differences in these assumptions account for, in part, the sometimes different conclusions reached to date [1,2]. Here we show how different oxidation states, completeness of metal-from-rock differentiation, Mg number, and non-hydrostatic… CONTINUE READING
