Did you hear about the million fold increase in the power of waves near Jupiter's moon Ganymede?

Million fold increase in the power of waves near Jupiter's moon Ganymede
Date:illion fold increase in the power of waves near Jupiter's moon Ganymede
August 7, 2018

GFZ GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Helmholtz Centre
Summary:
Chorus waves are electromagnetic waves. Converted to sound they sound like singing and chirping birds at dawn. They can cause polar lights above the Earth as well as damage to satellites. Now, a team of researchers has found that such waves are intensified million-fold around Jupiter's moon Ganymede. This study provides important observational constraints for theoretical studies.

Ooops.... That's the meteor link, but I found the story here: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180807095146.htm

I don't know the what or why of these waves, but they may be a big help in determining whether exoplanets can support life because they might tell us whether or not they have magnetic fields.
Magnetospheres are essential to keep the solar winds from stripping away atmospheres.
The lack of a significant magnetosphere is probably why Mars is so barren today.
