Re: Too Close!

The work is excellent. But why is a starship studying Io, when there's a manned space station in orbit of Jupiter that can do the same work without tying up a valuable starship? And I can't imagine Io would ever erupt so violently that an orbiting starship would be endangered - the shields should be able to easily handle a simple volcanic eruption from orbit. Or am I over-thinking this image?
