Pele is a volcano on the surface of Jupiter's moon Io. It is named after the Hawaiian volcano goddess Pele. The volcano is located at 18°42′S255°18′W / 18.7°S 255.3°W / -18.7; -255.3Coordinates: 18°42′S255°18′W / 18.7°S 255.3°W / -18.7; -255.3. The volcano consists of a volcanic depression 30 kilometres (19 mi) long by 20 kilometres (12 mi) wide, at the northern base of a rifted plateau known as Danube Planum. A lake consisting of basaltic lava fills part of the depression, releasing tremendous amounts of energy into space. This lava lake is also the source of a plume of gas and dust that reaches as high as 300 kilometres (190 mi) above the surface before the material is deposited in a ring of red material as far as 600 kilometres (370 mi) from the volcano.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
