American scientists have discovered. The Io atmosphere consists mainly of sulfur dioxide from volcanoes there. Every one and a half to two days is Io in the shadow of Jupiter. If that happens, the temperature drops to Io of 148 degrees below zero to minus 168 degrees. Sulphur dioxide freezes and then condenses on the surface. When the sun shines again, the ice gas again.,, The atmosphere of Io is in a constant state of collapse and recovery, '' the researchers say.
