Of course a suduko!

Still not sure what to do, but i'm at work at the moment so will give it a go this evening.

The puzzle cards also form a 16x16 grid. (Mean anything?)

Hi there, ive just solved this after looking at devjoe's post. After googling and all that and looking at this thread somehow i came to the answer. I wont post it just yet but your pretty much there i think.

I like that idea devjoe, I can't see any duplications in any row, column or square so the su-doku thing could be right on the money.

I was noticing that too. Can anybody who has the card or a more detailed scan to look at check whether any name is repeated in a row or column? If not, there's a good chance this is meant to be a 16x16 sudoku puzzle. Also check the 4x4 subsquares that may not actually be marked. If the rows and columns are unique but the subsquares contain repeats, it may be some other kind of Latin square puzzle.

you can make the name Megaclite out of the first letters of each of the moons leaving the letters

S H P A C A L

but i think thats coincidental.

Probably not.

Well that certainly implies that the value "551 kelvin" is very relevant. I guess they accidently typed 511 the first time.
Funny no one at MC noticed.

<Edit>

UKver2.0 I like how you think...

I'm curious what the K. 551 refers to though.

Hmm... that makes for 551 Kelvin or to continue the format on the card...

K. 551

Not too far off from "Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551, ('Jupiter')"

You should probably all make use of this on the card info page :

Just so we know, The only element that has a melting point close to 237 degrees is everyone's favorite metal, TIN, at a sweltering 232 degrees celcius.

Nope. That's -273(.15) degC, not -237... and the concept of negative Kelvin is nonsensical, since it's just degC biased such that absolute zero is 0.

I'm liking the Jupiter approach, but what are the numbers for the ordering? Why are the anagrams repeated? And what's the temperature mean? Seems rather hot for a surface temp that far out, and Jupiter doesn't even have a surface...

Absolutely!

Several minutes searching on Wikipedia produced some meaning for these numbers relate to conversion between Celsius, Farenheit, and Kelvin.

Incidentally, not via the main page. Searching via google leads to an alternation language variant at http://nn.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahrenheithttp://nn.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahrenheit

These values, if negative, equal absolute zero - the minimum possible temperature, at which all movement stops, down to the atomic level.

They're all anagrams of Jupiter's moons.

Smite = Metis
Deal = Leda
Edgy Name = Ganymede
Io = Io
Ken Ana = Ananke
Cream = Carme
Lama Heat = Amalthea
Pisa Heap = Pasiphae
Hail Aim = Himalia
Last Coil = Callisto
Ponies = Sinope
Aero Up = Europa
Hasty Lie = Lysithea
A Lear = Elara
Be The = Thebe

I haven't got the card, so I don't know if this is of any use, or how.

C. 237.85=F. 460.13=K.511 yep, but i keep looking at all the anagrams for whats on the card, and i keep geting planets or stars.
i.e. Jupiter's moon, ananke.
