As we move to the outer planets, we leave behind the psychological security of planetary surfaces. We can imagine standing on the moon, on Venus, or on Mars, but Jupiter and Saturn have no surfaces. Thus, we face a new challengeto use comparative planetology to study worlds so unearthly we cannot i
