NASA’s billion-dollar-plus probe has sent back crazy new photos of Jupiter

NASA’s Juno probe is letting us discover Jupiter like never before. Here are the latest stunning photos of the king of the planets

The probe Juno NASA’s rover, which launched in August 2011 and arrived in the Jovian system in July 2016, is making us learn about Jupiter in a way we’ve never seen before (we constantly update you with in-depth articles as soon as news comes out on this topic). . The main objectives are:

  • Structural properties and dynamics of planetary kingdoms through mass and nucleus measurements;
  • Study of gravitational fields and magnetic fields.
  • In-depth analysis of buyer atmosphere.
  • Study of the poles, especially the three-dimensional structure of the magnetosphere.

Meanwhile, he presents us with these amazing photos, and here are the latest:

Some information about the King of the Planets

Jupiter It is the largest of the eight planets in the solar system. Its mass is twice the mass of all other planets combined. that it Gas giant: It consists mainly of hydrogen and helium with a rocky core most likely composed mainly of carbon and silicates. The Jovian atmosphere contains many active phenomena: unstable bands, storms (caused by convective movements of moist air in its atmosphere), hurricanes, anticyclones, and lightning. It has 79 natural satellites, of which we mention the four Galilean moons as the most important: Io, Europa, Callisto and Ganymede. It also has a ring system that the probe discovered in 1979 Voyager 1 After those of Saturn and Uranus: they consist mainly of dust, probably silicates.

In its own small way, Passione Astronomia helps you understand how the universe works. The universe works better if the people in it are well informed. If they had read nonsense, lies, and poison, it would have ended the way it did. Things are not going well right now. That’s why it’s important for someone to explain things well. Passionate Astronomy is doing its best. Participate!
