Jupiter was the first planet to form after the Sun's birth, five billion years ago. We currently know that Jupiter has a system of 79 moons. The main moons, the so-called Galilean Moons of Jupiter are Io, Ganymedes, Callisto and Europa which inspire the names of the Jupiter Editions Literary and Film Awards.

Physicist, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher Galileo Galilei was the first astronomer to record, in 1610, the observation of Jupiter's natural satellites. Astronomer Simon Marius claimed to have observed the moons at the same time, however it took longer to publish his observations… Galileo won the Io Jupiter Editions - Tribute Galileo Galilei & Simon Marius Award…


Some in the scientific community equate the planet Jupiter with the Sun and that just as the Sun has its solar system with its planets, Jupiter also has its “own solar system” with its moons, as if the moons were “planets” . In fact,  Jupiter's moon Europa is one of the satellites that most arouses interest because it has conditions favorable to those of Earth, opening up the hypothesis of the existence and possibility of “extraterrestrial” life in Europa. Europa's surface is covered with ice and it is believed that beneath it lies a vast ocean. Like Earth, the satellite has a core composed of iron and nickel which, in turn, is covered by a rock layer.  This is the satellite that sets the stage for Gabriel Garibaldi's alien novel Jupiter, from where we can travel to other moons and planets.


Ganymedes, the largest moon in our Solar System, is also a satellite that is arousing a lot of interest because it has a magnetic field and strong evidence for the existence of underground saltwater oceans that are larger than Earth's.  O  Hubble telescope  showed that Ganymede has an ocean 100 kilometers thick.


Io is Jupiter's third largest moon and is the most volcanically active object in our Solar System.


Callisto is made up of ice and rocks and its core is believed to be made up of silicates. There are also studies that indicate that this satellite may have underground water.  


The reason for so many satellites is believed to be that Jupiter actually constituted a system that "failed" to form. Jupiter, managed to convert  in a "star", like the sun, but it did not have enough gravitational force to attract the bodies that are in its orbit. In the terrestrial scientific community they call Jupiter a "dead system" within the  solar system , the same calling the  Saturn … With Gabriel Garibaldi's Jupiter novel in which Jupiter is a living system and in which Jupiter is a star, Jupiter Editions gives Jupiter a story that makes it shine.
