“What is the difference between Jupiter's moon and a golfball?
None, it’s the same thing.”

- Hermann von Helmholtz

Wannsee 1952

“Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed members of the prize committee, distinguished president, colleagues, friends, and frenemies the last but not least the esteemed audience gathered here today to celebrate this momentous occasion, I stand before you with a profound sense of honor. A decade ago, within the confines of this very location, we convened for the Wannsee Planetary Gathering, where I assumed the responsibility of relocating the pioneering portable thermonuclear plant to a celestial body within our solar system. Devoid of blueprints and guidelines, we embarked on our mission akin to a child traversing the mysterious mist, searching in the darkness for our path toward the radiance of nuclear energy. Indeed, the universe resembles a dark forest, yet against all odds, I am delighted to report that we have emerged triumphant! 

However, I am here to do the honorary speech not to bore you to death. Instead, I invite you to embark on a celestial odyssey, delving into the intricacies of our atomic colonization of the Galilean Moons, a feat accomplished just last year. The fruition of this ambitious endeavor owes its existence to the remarkable Helmholtz-Zentrum, which has been steadfastly pioneering top-tier thermonuclear solutions since its inception in June 1934, fostering seamless communication throughout our solar systems. 

Life appeared first on Europa, and we unknowingly destroyed it in a bud. Aware that opportunities for redemption might be scarce, we shifted our focus to Ganymede, the largest of Jupiter’s moons. It was there, beneath the moon’s icy surface, that we kindled the flame of life by introducing atomic seeds into its subsurface oceanic waters. Delving deep, our penetration led us beneath the polar crust until we reached the hexagonal ice formation. Our endeavor to infuse life-sustaining elements into Ganymede’s liquid core was made possible through the interaction of magnetic friction within the moon—or should I call it a golf ball? By colonizing the salty waters of Ganymede with nano molecules and therein establishing an osmotic nuclear core we have augmented the prospects for the development of life thereby one hundred billion to five hundred billion percent. 


During my childhood, around the age of seven, I stumbled upon a tale that left a deep impression on me — the narrative of our Sun’s ultimate end. As I read through the pages, a tinge of sadness enveloped me, and it was the certainty of its conclusion that proved most disconcerting. Witnessing the Sun’s transformation, evolving from a fiery red giant to a radiant white dwarf, only to culminate as a captivating planetary nebula, the inexorable march towards its destiny sent shivers down my young spine. While the astronomical timescale suggested an inconceivably distant future, the mere existence of an ultimate end cast an overwhelming sense of melancholy upon me. 
The passage of millions of years was inconsequential at that tender age; what mattered was the certainty of an ending, no matter how far removed it appeared. The realization of our solar system’s eventual fate instilled within me a vivid memory of profound hopelessness, serving as a poignant reminder of the delicate nature of our vast universe. 

Searching for the most relevant solutions might lead you to the most unexpected answers. 

Did you know that Ganymede boasts its own mesmerizing aurora? As the probe ventured closer to this enigmatic moon, it unveiled a breathtaking sight of two celestial belts swirling around it in a cosmic embrace. It was as if witnessing a profound act of love, a celestial ballet between twin hermaphrodites. We approached Ganymede with a loving touch. We brought our seeds to spread and migrate. The future is bright and yet we can be sure something wrong will happen. In the grand tapestry of existence, we are reminded that our solar system’s fate is sealed—the fiery maw of the red giant will eventually swallow Jupiter, its moons, and our entire solar system. Every day, we’re time-traveling towards ultimate destruction, with a steady pace one second at a time. What we have brought to Ganymede will not save us. We did our best to begin a new life but it is only halfway. It’s half-life you could say.”
