So, I'm pretty excited guys. Why? Because I have a housemate who can take photos! And, even better, he is someone that I don't even have to bribe or coerce into taking blog photos for me! (I'm sure any other bloggers reading this will be very familiar with that kind of frustration, if you aren't already lucky enough to know heaps of professional photographers.) So thank you Josh for taking these lovely photos for me.
This dress is a hand-me-down from my mum, who rocked it in the early 1990s. The simple shift shape is perfect for a lazy warm afternoon, and it doesn't really need any dressing-up either because of it's cute little daisies appliqués on the bodice. Just add a cute animal bag and you're good to go! I see simple shift dresses like this in thrift stores all the time, and it would be pretty easy, if you were so inclined, to add a couple of daisy appliqués to said dresses ;)

Io has some unique characteristics for a moon. The closest moon to Jupiter, Io has at least 400 active volcanoes on its surface, which makes it the most geologically active object in the entire solar system. It's got lava running all over the surface. It's not at all icy, either, being mostly made up of silicate rock coated with sulfur dioxide frost. Like Europa, it also keeps warm via "tidal-heating", caused by Jupiter's gravitational pull (which is also responsible for the crazy amount of volcanoes).
So I guess right now you are probably thinking that Io doesn't sound very friendly to life. But just because conditions on Io are so extreme, it doesn't mean that life couldn't exist - it would just be very different to the kind we are used to. It's been suggested that organic molecules could exist underground, inside lava tubes, which could both provide insulation and trap moisture and nutrients. Microbes could be able to "breathe" sulfur the way that we breathe oxygen. The Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer (JUICE) that is going to do fly-bys of many Jovian moons won't be exploring Io, but it has been stressed by some astrobiologists that Io shouldn't be overlooked as a potential place for life - because, if life were found on Io, then it would make the possibilities of life existing on other moons and planets in the the galaxy far more likely.
