Ganymede has Wi-Fi.

How many bars?

SALT LAKE CITY (KTVX) – The Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter has discovered an FM radio signal coming from the moon Ganymede. The find is a first-time detection from the moon.

“It’s not E.T.,” said Patrick Wiggins, one of NASA’s Ambassadors to Utah. “It’s more of a natural function.”

Juno was traveling across the polar region of Jupiter — where magnetic field lines connect to Ganymede — when it crossed the radio source. Scientifically, it is called a “decametric radio emission.”

Here on Earth, we know it as Wi-Fi, and we use it every day.

…That’s it. That’s all the joke there is. Sorry.
