  1. So next week I plan to do a 100K subs special video where I answer any question you might have. If you want a chance to have your question answered in the video, ask a question replying to this comment! It can be about space, me, the channel, whatever 🙂 Hopefully we will get to know each other a bit better from it!

  2. I think our moons influence doesn't move the tides on average 2 meters , in fact its only about 2cm , but it builds up over time to create a slosh effect which is the 2 meters !

  3. Your channel is so underrated. You deserve millions on views for the beautiful, yet such artistic descriptions of the wonders of space. I admit I never thought Io was such an interesting moon. To me, Europa was the most attractive because of the ice and possible oceans beneath. But Io turned out to be equally intense. Hope your channel gets what it deserves. Keep it up! Best wishes from Pakistan!

  4. Io a lot of money, but you owe a clarification. Io doesn't have a "thin" atmosphere, it has a trace atmosphere due almost entirely to the volcanic eruptions scattered across its surface. Also, please explain how Io is "hellish." That is SUCH an overused word in astronomy videos!

  5. I like when you explain what the features we see in the photos are – want more of that. I actually wish the close-up landscape photos were on screen a bit longer – I feel like they cut out before I can absorb them. Or maybe I just think too slow.

  6. Despite being so active and colourful, I have largely ignored Io, having dismissed it as simply being a body unfortunate enough to orbit that bohemoth so close. This video had put paid to that thanks to explaining the mant and varied interactions it has with it's mother body plus the fact it's a close relation to our moon.

  7. Great video as always. Thank you. I really like that you always label the images as to whether they are true color, enhanced, or artist conceptions. Thanks for that. Congratulations on100,000 subs!

  8. I actually know the amount radioactivity and levels that would kill a human if I were to step on any of the Galilean moons, IO/Europa = Not Safe, Callisto/Ganymede = Safe. Can you mention this for other moons though? For example, if you were able to step and walk about on ganymede, it wouldn't kill you. It'd be interesting to hear what is actually safe in certain terms for our solar system. :p

  9. Excellent and educational video as ever and waiting for the other moons videos. Congratulations on passing 100k subscribers mark. Running like this you will sure cross the 10 million subscribers in near future. By the way you will find my question in your comment's reply section.
