NASA’s Juno probe has captured another striking new image of the Jupiter cyclone storms ravaging the planet’s atmosphere.
The cyclone storms on Jupiter are made of liquid hydrogen and helium
The stunning new image presents multiple massive swirling masses of Jupiter cyclone storms ravaging its atmosphere and its surface.
The photographed cyclone storms are made of a combination of helium and hydrogen in its fluid form, to which is added the Jupiter’s extravagant gravitational force.
The importance of NASA’s Juno probe’s readings and images
Juno is orbiting Jupiter since 2016 and offered precious data about the biggest planet of our Solar System
NASA’s Juno probe is frequently giving NASA’s astronomers very valuable information about Jupiter’s structure, atmosphere, and dynamics.
Furthermore, until Juno, astronomers had known nothing about the Jupiter’s fabulous and colorful cloud formation
“Juno is designed to look beneath these clouds,” admitted the professor Yohai Kaspi who was the leader of several studies and recent investigations that used the Jupiter’s new gravitational forces measurements.
“On Jupiter, a gaseous planet without a solid surface, we can only gather information from orbit,” explained the professor Luciano from the Sapienza University in Rome, talking about the Juno’s importance for astronomy.
Jupiter is 99% gaseous
Jupiter is what the astronomers call a “gas giant”, which is at the opposite pole of the rocky planets (Earth, Mercury, Mars, etc.) because its made of helium and hydrogen in a proportion of 99%.
According to Juno’s observations, Jupiter is very surprising because deep under its ‘surface’ the gases of its composition are transformed into a dense and hot fluid metal.
Even more surprising, the astronomers agreed that the biggest planet in our Solar System, Jupiter, spits jet stream up to 3,000 kilometers from its ‘surface’ which is made of a mixture of helium an hydrogen that, under the planet’s gravitational force, rotate in a similar way as the rocky surfaces of Earth or Mars.
