“In June 2017, 12 more moons were found orbiting the planet Jupiter, to a total of 79. These are divided in three large groups: while the two groups that orbit nearer the planet do so in the direction of Jupiter’s rotation, the third rotates in the opposite direction and at a greater distance. However, a moon was found in this distant group moving in the direction of the rotation of Jupiter, contrarily to all the surrounding moons. This peculiar characteristic makes it possible to predict an inevitable collision, reason why the scientists called it “Valetudo”. Boris is currently scanning its surface to try to get answers before it’s too late.”
