Plasma Instabilities

At ... (November 14th, 2018). Radio lasers on Jupiter produced as a result of plasma instabilities - sounds almost like the EU. They are produced in the magnetosphere of Jupiter as a result of interaction with it's moon Io. In the normal course of events Jupiter's known radio emissions are weak by the time they reach the vicinity of the earth and only spacecraft in the vicinity of the planet can detect them. However, occasionally electric currents running between Jupiter and Io boost the level of the radio emissions which can be picked up on radion antennaes on earth.
