      Potentially but with a lot of work. We need to find a way to survive on the moon’s surface, which is very cold (-170 degrees Celcius!). Ganymede has an atmosphere with oxygen but not enough to support life. It would be like living on our Moon in many ways, but with a giant pool of (hopefully drinkable) water.
