|High Tide on Io!|
This site provides a discussion of movement on the surface of Io, a satellite of Jupiter. It makes comparisons between ground movement on Io, where the ground itself moves up and down like an elevator taking people to the top and bottom of a 30-story building, and the earth, where similar ground tides cause total movements of only 8 inches. Galileo spacecraft and its visit to Io are briefly described.
