  • What If You Fell Into Jupiter?


    Humans have explored the Moon, Mars, and of course, Earth. But what do we know about Jupiter?

    For the most part, this gas giant is a mystery. So what would happen if you wanted to discover it for yourself and jumped right onto the planet? Or should we say into? Because Jupiter doesn't have a surface, just a seemingly endless stretch of atmosphere.

    Would you fall straight through? What would you see on your way? And how would it make you feel?

  • What Would Happen If Humans Tried To Land On Jupiter


    The best way to explore a new world is to land on it. That's why humans have sent spacecraft to the Moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn's moon, Titan, and more.

    But there are a few places in the solar system we will never understand as well as we'd like. One of them is Jupiter.

    Jupiter is made of mostly hydrogen and helium gas. So, trying to land on it would be like trying to land on a cloud here on Earth. There's no outer crust to break your fall on Jupiter. Just an endless stretch of atmosphere.

    The big question, then, is: Could you fall through one end of Jupiter and out the other? It turns out, you wouldn't even make it halfway. Here’s what would happen if you tried to land on Jupiter.

    *It's important to note that we feature the Lunar Lander for the first half of the descent. In reality, the Lunar Lander is relatively delicate compared to, say, NASA's Orion spacecraft. Therefore, the Lunar Lander would not be used for a mission to land on any world that contains an atmosphere, including Jupiter. However, any spacecraft, no matter how robust, would not survive for long in Jupiter, so the Lunar Lander is as good of a choice as any for this hypothetical scenario.

    First things first, Jupiter's atmosphere has no oxygen. So make sure you bring plenty with you to breathe. The next problem is the scorching temperatures. So pack an air conditioner. Now, you're ready for a journey of epic proportions.

    For scale, here's how many Earths you could stack from Jupiter's center. As you enter the top of the atmosphere, you're be traveling at 110,000 mph under the pull of Jupiter's gravity.

    But brace yourself. You'll quickly hit the denser atmosphere below, which will hit you like a wall. It won't be enough to stop you, though.

    After about 3 minutes you'll reach the cloud tops 155 miles down. Here, you'll experience the full brunt of Jupiter's rotation. Jupiter is the fastest rotating planet in our solar system. One day lasts about 9.5 Earth hours. This creates powerful winds that can whip around the planet at more than 300 mph.

    About 75 miles below the clouds, you reach the limit of human exploration. The Galileo probe made it this far when it dove into Jupiter's atmosphere in 1995. It only lasted 58 minutes before losing contact and was eventually destroyed by the crushing pressures.

    Down here, the pressure is nearly 100 times what it is at Earth's surface.  And you won't be able to see anything, so you'll have to rely on instruments to explore your surroundings.

    By 430 miles down, the pressure is 1,150 times higher. You might survive down here if you were in a spacecraft built like the Trieste submarine — the deepest diving submarine on Earth. Any deeper and the pressure and temperature will be too great for a spacecraft to endure.

    However, let's say you could find a way to descend even farther. You will uncover some of Jupiter’s grandest mysteries.But, sadly, you'll have no way to tell anyone. Jupiter's deep atmosphere absorbs radio waves, so you'll be shut off from the outside world— unable to communicate.

    Once you've reached 2,500 miles down, the temperature is 6,100 ºF.  That's hot enough to melt tungsten, the metal with the highest melting point in the Universe. At this point, you will have been falling for at least 12 hours. And you won't even be halfway through.

    At 13,000 miles down, you reach Jupiter's innermost layer. Here the pressure is 2 million times stronger than at Earth's surface. And the temperature is hotter than the surface of the sun. These conditions are so extreme they change the chemistry of the hydrogen around you. Hydrogen molecules are forced so close together that their electrons break lose, forming an unusual substance called metallic hydrogen. Metallic hydrogen is highly reflective. So, if you tried using lights to see down here it would be impossible.

    And it's as dense as a rock. So, as you travel deeper, the buoyancy force from the metallic hydrogen counteracts gravity's downward pull.  Eventually, that buoyancy will shoot you back up until gravity pulls you back down, sort of like a yo-yo. And when those two forces equal, you'll be left free-floating in mid-Jupiter, unable to move up or down, and no way to escape!

    Suffice it say, trying to land on Jupiter is a bad idea. We may never see what's beneath those majestic clouds. But we can still study and admire this mysterious planet from afar.

  • Fly into the Great Red Spot of Jupiter with NASA’s Juno Mission


    This animation takes the viewer on a simulated flight into, and then out of, Jupiter’s upper atmosphere at the location of the Great Red Spot. It was created by combining an image from the JunoCam imager on NASA's Juno spacecraft with a computer-generated animation.

    The perspective begins about 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) above the cloud tops of the planet's southern hemisphere. The bar at far left indicates altitude during the quick descent; a second gauge next to that depicts the dramatic increase in temperature that occurs as the perspective dives deeper down. The clouds turn crimson as the perspective passes through the Great Red Spot. Finally, the view ascends out of the spot.

    Falling into Jupiter description (based on the popular Reddit post by Astromike23)
    You would first fall through the high, white ammonia clouds, at about 0.5 atmospheres, which is half the atmospheric pressure at sea level on Earth. The suns light would still be visible, but it wouldn't warm you as it is incredibly cold at this altitude, dropping to below -150 degrees Celsius. Because the gravity of Jupiter is so strong you would be descending roughly 2.5 times faster than if they were falling towards Earth you would eventually reach the bottom of the Ammonia clouds, feeling a pressure of 1 atmosphere. At this point, the sun can still be seen but its light is being filtered by the clouds above, resembling an overcast day back on Earth. But below, you would see the next stage of your journey, rolling brown ammonium hydrosulphide and ammonium sulfide clouds, which start at about 2 atmospheres and become more and more brown the further you travel through them. As you enter these clouds, the light from the sun would slowly diminish and the temperature would start to heat up due to the ever-increasing pressures around you. The further you descend the darker it will become until it is completely black, but then huge flashes of lightning illuminate the now dark environment you find your self in, revealing towering white water ice clouds that are causing rumbling thunderstorms to occur. As you pass through this cloud stage the pressure would increase to a crushing 10 atmospheres and the temperature would have risen to 20 degrees Celsius. Using your hi-tech sci-fi helmet you can now see what's around you, but you would quickly realise that the cloud layers were the easy part of the adventure. As you emerge from the bottom of the water ice clouds the pressure would become intense and the temperature would drastically increase to above 200 degrees Celsius. After a very very long time of the sinking, you would start to notice the atmosphere becoming thicker and eventually you stop as your density equals out with the environment around you. But because your suit is extremely high tech it allows you to sink further into this abyss just to see what lies beneath. After an extremely long wait, you would have now sunk 13,000 miles into Jupiter and into to the metallic region at 2 million atmospheres. Here the hydrogen has become so dense that it has become a type of liquid metal and this is what is causing Jupiter's strong magnetic field. The temperature would continue to increase, becoming hotter than the surface of the sun as the hydrogen-metal around you glows white hot and illuminates this strange environment. At this stage, most materials would instantly crumble and dissolve, but because your science fiction space suit is super strong you can keep descending through this ocean of liquid metal. After a seriously long time of sinking through this abyss, you would eventually hit rock bottom, literally. This would be the final stage of your journey, you would be standing on a surface perhaps 10 times the mass of Earth and made of rock and exotic ices, at a pressure of above 25 million atmospheres. Surrounding Jupiter's core is a huge mixture of rock and liquid hydrogen metal that has been called the fuzzy layer and this is where your adventure would end.

  • Incredible NASA Simulated Flight Through Jupiters Great Red Spot


    The most famous storm in the solar system is also one of the largest: Jupiter's Great Red Spot. The storm is just a blemish on Jupiter, but if you compare it to the size of Earth — this storm could swallow our entire planet whole. In July, NASA Juno spacecraft flew over the spot and NASA then used that data to produce a simulated flight through the Great Red Spot. Following is a transcript of the video. 

    NASA's Juno spacecraft is orbiting Jupiter. Recently, it flew over Jupiter's famous Great Red Spot. The Great Red Spot is a giant storm 1.3X the size of Earth that's been raging for hundreds of years. As Juno flew over the swirling vortex, it measured the storm's temperature and depth.

    NASA then used Juno's data to produce this simulation of what it would be like to fly into this massive storm. The storm is 50 to 100X deeper than Earth's oceans. As you dive deeper into the atmosphere the temperature increases. 

    The warmth of the spot's base explains the ferocious winds we see at the top of the atmosphere, said Andy Ingersoll, Juno co-investigator in a NASA statement.

    Wind speeds are greater than Earth's most powerful hurricanes. So, it's best that Juno keep its distance and simply enjoy the view from afar.

  • No Human Has Ever Left Earth’s Atmosphere, Heres Why


    New observations of our atmosphere calculate that it extends far beyond what we thought, encompassing the moon! This means that we've actually never left Earth's atmosphere. Here's what else these observations can tell us.

    Earth's Atmosphere Stretches Out To The Moon - And Beyond

    The new study revealed that sunlight compresses hydrogen atoms in the geocorona on Earth’s dayside, and also produces a region of enhanced density on the night side. The denser dayside region of hydrogen is still rather sparse, with just 70 atoms per cubic centimeter at 60 000 kilometers above Earth’s surface, and about 0.2 atoms at the Moon’s distance.

    The edge of space: Revisiting the Karman Line

    A number of these authors suggest that the large variations with time of atmospheric properties make it futile to locate a true boundary of space based on physical arguments. In this paper I will argue the contrary: there is a moderately-well-defined boundary of space, it coincides with the Karman line as originally defined, and that line is close to 80 km, not 100 km.

    Exosphere - overview

    Not all scientists agree that the exosphere is really a part of the atmosphere. Some scientists consider the thermosphere the uppermost part of Earth's atmosphere and think that the exosphere is really just part of space. However, other scientists do consider the exosphere part of our planet's atmosphere.

    Music: Left Spine Down - “X-Ray”

    Just a few videos ago, I blew minds with a “How to” on terraforming the Moon. Once we’ve developed a Solar System spanning civilization and have claimed mastery over the laws of physics, and have common-place technology which staggers and dwarf our current comprehension of what’s possible it should be easy enough.

    In fact, it might even be easier than terraforming Mars or Venus, as long as you keep a steady flow of gas to the Moon replenishing the constantly escaping atmosphere.

    And in the comments on that video, ABitOfTheUniverse threw down , he wants to know what it would take to terraform Jupiter. All right “ABitOfTheUniverse”, if that is your real name… I’m up for it.

    On the surface, this is madness. We already explained how Jupiter is completely and totally inhospitable to life. An alien started a “Build a star kit” and stopped a ⅓ of the way through, because he got bored and wandered away. Just like his Mom said he would.

    Jupiter is a ball of hydrogen and helium, which compresses these gasses to almost starlike temperatures and pressures. Fine, Jupiter is the absolute worst. It makes traveling to Venus look like a spa visit.

    Jupiter does have something we can work with. Astronomers think below the septillions tons of hydrogen and gas, there’s actually a rocky core. The mass of the core is still a mystery, but recent computer simulations put it at somewhere between 7 and 45 times the mass of the Earth, complete with plenty of water ices and other chemicals you might require on an Earthlike planet.

    Furthermore, this core may contain similar constituents as the internal structure of Earth. This means a central core of iron and nickel, surrounded by liquid metal, surrounded by rock.

    The problem is you need to strip away 95% of the planet’s mass. It’s all that hydrogen and helium, and that’s pretty much impossible. And almost completely impossible, is still very slightly completely possible.

    Jupiter is made of fuel. It’s like looking at a pool of gasoline and wondering if there was some way to get rid of it all. What good Solar System-spanning civilization hasn’t worked out hydrogen fusion? It’s a technology that’s probably only 30 years away from us now.

    You could fly a spacecraft down into Jupiter’s gravity well and scoop up hydrogen fuel from the clouds. Or you could create fusion-powered dirigibles filled with hot hydrogen, which float around the cloud tops of Jupiter, using their fusion reactors to spew hydrogen off into space.

    Over untold lengths of time, you could get at that rocky juicy center, once you stripped it of its hydrogen. Then you’ll need to do all that other stuff I mentioned in previous videos, to turn it into a habitable world.

    Sure, it’s a world with much higher gravity than Earth, but that’s not my problem. You said “Earthlike”. That’ll teach you to make wishes with a monkey’s paw!

    What if you need to move Jupiter first, perhaps a little closer to the Sun. There’s an awesome idea cooked up by Larry Niven in his book, “A World Out of Time”. It’s a fusion candle, and it lets you shift gas giants around.

    You take a long space station, and light up fusion thrusters on both ends. You dip one end down into the upper clouds, where it siphons hydrogen fuel. Both ends of the space station start blasting. One end keeps it from dropping down into the planet, and the other end pushes on the entire planet, pushing it around the Solar System.

    Instead of trying to terraform Jupiter, we could just push the planet closer to the Sun, where its icy moons warm up and become habitable themselves.

  • What If Jupiter Swallowed Earth?


    The Earth has been hurtling towards Jupiter for the past 242 days, and now it's about to make impact. Now we're so close to the giant planet that it's the only thing that fills our sky. Ground temperatures on Earth are rising uncontrollably, our atmosphere is igniting into flames, and the scientific community is scrambling to provide answers. What will happen when the two planets collide? Is there any chance that we could pass right through the gas planet? And how would this collision transform Jupiter forever?

    Music: Left Spine Down - “X-Ray”

    NASA and Elon Musk have plans to get your ass to Mars.

    It’s not impossible to imagine humans living and working on the Red Planet. Maybe they’ll be crusty asteroid miners making their fortune digging precious minerals out of the inexhaustible supply of space rocks. Pray they don’t dig too deeply. We should go ask Kuato, that creepy little guy knows everything! Except he’s always trying to get you to touch his funny little hands. Pass.

    Venus looks like it’s a pretty great place to live, if we stick to the clouds in floating sky cities, plying the jet streams in our steampunk dirigibles. It’ll be fun, but first, does anyone know how to attach a cog to a top hat? Venus, here we come!

    We should stay away from the surface, though, that place’ll kill you dead. We’re guessing a crispy shell holding in a gooey center, at least for the first few moments. Once we sort the living in space deal, is there anywhere we won’t be able to go?

    We could create underwater cities on Europa or Ganymede, in the vast oceans with the exotic hopefully unarmed, peaceful, vegetarian Jovian whales.Like Jupiter? Could we live there?

    Jupiter is the most massive planet in the Solar System. It has a diameter of almost 140,000 kilometers and it’s made mostly of hydrogen and helium; the same materials of the Sun. It has more than 317 times the mass of the Earth, providing its enormous gravity.

    If you could stand on the cloud tops of Jupiter, you would experience 2.5 times the gravity that you experience on Earth. Then you’d fall to your death, because it’s a gas planet, made of hydrogen, the lightest element in the Universe. You can’t stand on gas, rookie.

    If you tried to bring your Venusian Vernian exploratorium ballooncraft for a jaunt across the skies of Jupiter, it would sink like a copper bowler with lead goggles.

    The only thing that’s lighter than hydrogen is hot hydrogen. Let’s say you could make a balloon, and fill it with superheated hydrogen and float around the cloud tops of Jupiter suffering the crushing gravity. Is there anything else that might kill you?

    Did you leave Earth? Then of course there is. Everything is going to kill you, always. You might want to write that on the brass plaque next to your ship’s wheel with the carving of Shiva in the center there, Captain Baron Cogsworth Copperglass.

    Jupiter is surrounded by an enormous magnetic field, ten times more powerful than Earth’s. It traps particles and then whips them around like an accelerator. This radiation is a million times more powerful than the Earth’s Van Allen belts. Our big human meat roasting concern during the Apollo days.

    If you tried to get near the radiation belts without insufficient shielding. It’d be bad. Just picture jamming your copper and brass steamwork fantasy into a giant microwave.

    Is it possible there’s a solid core, deep down within Jupiter? Somewhere we could live, and not have to worry about those pesky buoyancy problems? Probably. Astronomers think there are a few times the mass of the Earth in rocky material deep down inside.

    Of course, the pressure and temperature are incomprehensible. The temperature at the core of Jupiter is thought to be 24,000 degrees Celsius. Hydrogen is crushed so tightly it becomes superheated liquid or strange new flavors of ice. It becomes a metal.

    The moral, we’re not equipped to go there. Let alone set up shop. So, let’s just stick with fantasizing your adventures as Emperor Esquire Beardweirdy Brassnozzle Steamypantaloons.

    In his classic book 2001, Arthur C. Clarke said that “all these worlds are yours except Europa, attempt no landing there”. Well that’s crazy.

    Europa’s awesome, we’re totally landing there, especially if we discover alien whales. So, Europa first. Besides, it’s just a book. So, Jupiter is the worst. Do not navigate your airship into that harbour.

  • What’s Inside Jupiter? Close Encounters With The Giant | V


    In July, the Juno probe will enter Jovian orbit, skimming just 3100 miles from the cloud tops. Repeated passes should give researchers a good idea of the planet’s composition, which likely includes ha vast reserve of hydrogen compressed to the metallic state surrounding a rocket ice core. --

  • On Jupiter - Destroyer of Comets


    Subscribe to Naked Science -

    Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...

    The most amazing thing about Jupiter for us Earthlings is that there is no place to stand. We see nothing but clouds and hurricanes the size of Earth, we don’t see the ground because there is no ground.

    For five billion years an icy juggernaut had roamed the backstreets of the Solar System flaring only as it swept close to the heat of the sun. But Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 hadn’t reckoned on the mighty power of the planet Jupiter. Jupiter, the king of the planets, destroyer of comets.

    The broken fragments of Shoemaker-Levy 9 were big enough to remodel life on Earth. Each was being sucked in by the largest planet in the Solar System, each of their fiery descents was another chance to find out what it’s really like on Jupiter.

    The impact of SL9 highlighted Jupiter's role as a cosmic vacuum cleaner for the inner Solar System. The planet's strong gravitational influence leads to many comets and asteroids colliding with the planet. If Jupiter were not present, the probability of asteroid impacts with the Solar System's inner planets would be much greater.

    For millennia the bright beacon of Jupiter has caught the human gaze as it has travelled the heavens, but we had to wait for the invention of the telescope and a renaissance Italian for the planet to begin giving up its secrets. On the night of 7th January 1610 Galileo Galilei made a discovery that was to challenge Earth’s claim to sovereignty of the solar system.

    Jupiter’s dominance of the Solar System is complete, 1,300 times the size of Earth, it’s a world so enormous it could swallow every planet and moon in the solar system an still have room to spare. Looking back from Jupiter the Earth is a feeble speck circling a faint and distant sun

  • Why NASA Spews Out Half A Million Gallons Of Water During Rocket Launches


    NASA created this half a million gallon fountain as part of a test for its Space Launch System, scheduled to launch for the first time in 2020.

    Why NASA Spews Out Half A Million Gallons Of Water During Rocket Launches

    Following is the transcript of the video:

    Alex Appolonia: This is almost half a million gallons of water being blasted a hundred feet into the air.

    The most impressive part? It was all done in just 60 seconds.

    NASA created the massive fountain as part of a test for its Space Launch System, scheduled to launch for the first time in 2020.

    It will be the largest, most powerful rocket NASA has ever built. Standing upright, the SLS will reach 322 feet in height, 17 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty, and weigh almost 6 million pounds.

    Its first planned mission? A 25-day trip around the moon.

    When it lifts off, its engines will generate 8.4 million pounds of force and sound waves so powerful that they could easily destroy the rocket from the ground up.

    That's where NASA's Ignition Overpressure and Sound Suppression System comes in. NASA projects the water onto and over the launchpad during ignition and liftoff. This not only protects the ground from the rocket's engines it also prevents the sound waves from bouncing off the ground and back up which could cause catastrophic damage to the engines. The system also prevents the giant flames generated by the engines from catching anything on fire.

    During an actual launch, some of the water will evaporate due to the extreme heat, while the rest exits through nozzles. This test is just one of many more that NASA will conduct over the coming months in preparation for the rocket's first launch.

    The SLS is designed for deeper space missions able to explore far beyond Earth's orbit. It can carry astronauts in an Orion capsule, or ferry other cargo, like exploratory robots, to distant worlds like Jupiter and Mars. Pretty impressive, huh?

    This latest test, performed in the beginning of October, was to evaluate any needed upgrades, like corrosion control, renovating the water storage tank, and checking the conditions of the pipes and valves. Now, it will be in tip-top shape for when the SLS is ready to make its debut flight in 2020.

  • New Horizons - Summiting the Solar System: Part 2


    On January 1, 2019, Ultima Thule, and object in the Kuiper Belt four billion miles from Earth, will be the most ancient and most distant world ever explored close up. Ultima is expected to offer discoveries about the origin and evolution of our solar system.

    Summiting goes behind the scenes of the most ambitious occultation campaigns ever mounted, as scientists deployed telescopes to Senegal and Colombia in 2018, and Argentina, South Africa and New Zealand in 2017, to glimpse Ultima as it passed in front of a star, and gathered data on the object's size and orbit that has been essential to planning the flyby. Mission scientists recall the astonishing scientific success of flying through the Pluto system in 2015, and use comparative planetology to show how Earth and Pluto are both amazingly different and—with glaciers, tall mountains, volcanoes and blue skies—awesomely similar. Appealing to space junkies and adrenaline junkies alike, Summiting brings viewers along for the ride of a lifetime as New Horizons pushes past Pluto and braves an even more hazardous unknown.

    A sun-powered robotic explorer named Juno rocketed away on Friday on a five-year journey to Jupiter, the solar system''s most massive and ancient planet.
    Hundreds of scientists and their families and friends watched from just a few miles away, cheering and yelling, Go Juno! as the NASA spacecraft took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, and soared into a clear midday sky atop an unmanned rocket.
    It was the first step in Juno''s 1.7 (b) billion-mile voyage to the gas giant Jupiter, just two planets away but altogether different from Earth and next-door neighbour Mars.
    Juno is solar powered, a first for a spacecraft meant to roam so far from the sun.
    It has three huge solar panels that were folded for launch.
    Once opened, they should each stretch as long and wide as a tractor-trailer. Previous spacecraft to the outer planets have relied on nuclear energy.
    With Juno, scientists hope to answer some of the most fundamental questions of our solar system.
    Scientists believe that Jupiter is like a time capsule.
    It received most of the leftovers from the sun''s creation nearly 5 (b) billion years ago - hence the planet''s immense size - and its enormous gravity field has enabled it to hold onto that original material.
    Jupiter is so big it could hold everything in the solar system, minus the sun, and still be twice as massive.
    Astronomers say it probably was the first planet in the solar system to form.
    Juno will venture much closer to Jupiter than any of the eight spacecraft that have visited Jupiter since the 1970s.
    The 1.1 (b) billion US dollar mission - which will end with Juno taking a fatal plunge into Jupiter in 2017 - kicks off a flurry of astronomy missions by NASA.
    There are a few special passengers aboard Juno, though.
    Attached to the probe are three little Lego figures specially made of space-grade aluminum.
    They represent the Italian physicist Galileo, who discovered Jupiter''s four biggest moons; the Roman god Jupiter; and his wife Juno, for whom the spacecraft is named.
    If all goes well, Juno will go into orbit around Jupiter''s poles - a first - on July 4, 2016.

  • The Juno Mission to Jupiter: Whats Inside the Giant Planet?


    In this LASP Public Lecture from February 8, 2012, Dr. Fran Bagenal details NASA's Juno mission to Jupiter. Juno was launched in August 2011 and will go into orbit over Jupiter's poles in about 5 years. Juno carries instruments that will probe Jupiter's deep interior and measure the amount of water—a key component of solar system evolution. Juno is the first spacecraft to fly over Jupiter's aurora and will measure both the energetic particles raining down on the planet and the bright northern & southern lights they excite.

  • Where did water come from in the universe? Research points to Jupiter or Saturn - TomoNews


    BORDEAUX, FRANCE — A study published in the journal Icarus, suggest that Earth's water is a simple byproduct of giant planet growth.

    During the formation of gas giants such as Saturn or Jupiter, they enter a period of rapid growth. This destabilized nearby water-rich space rocks known as planetesimals[e], bringing them into the planetary orbit.

    Next, the gravity there would have propelled these to the inner or outer solar system.
    The researchers speculate some were sent in an inward direction, toward some early form of Earth and seeded it with water.
