NASA's Juno spacecraft directly measured charged molecules of oxygen and hydrogen from the atmosphere of Europa, one of Jupiter's largest moons. According to a new study by scientists at SwRI and Princeton, these observations provided important constraints on the potential oxidation of its subsurface ocean
For the first time, NASA activated a tool designed to discover planets many light years away on an object in the solar system, in a study of the winds of Jupiter
The James Webb Space Telescope discovered a previously unseen jet stream in Jupiter's atmosphere. Similar phenomena have been observed in Saturn, and both may be related to temperature variations in the atmospheres of the gas giants
Io is a raging volcanic world. NASA researchers are specifically looking at a "hot spot" observed by several spacecraft orbiting Jupiter that has grown from snapshot to snapshot
Researchers have discovered that the Juno spacecraft often encounters giant swirling waves at the boundary between the solar wind and Jupiter's magnetosphere
The launch at Coro in French Guiana was postponed from yesterday due to weather conditions * The spacecraft is carrying ten instruments, some of which are also made in Israel * Will arrive in the Zedek system in July 2031
The Juice spacecraft (JUPiter ICy moons Explorer), is a joint project of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Italian Space Agency (ASI), planned to explore three of Jupiter's icy moons: Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. The mission is scheduled to reach Jupiter in 2031
The purpose of the operation - to find out if the oceans hidden beneath the surface of Jupiter's icy moons have the potential to support extraterrestrial life
The European Space Agency ESA will launch on 13/4 the JUICE spacecraft on the historic mission to Jupiter, with technologies and scientific research funded by the Israel Space Agency at the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology
In fact, the environment in these oceans is very similar to the environment of the earth at the time when life began
An international team of astronomers found that the gaseous mantle of Jupiter does not have a homogeneous distribution. The inner part has more metals than the outer parts, and they amount to 11 to 30 Earth masses and constitute 3-9% of the total mass of Jupiter. It is likely that these are Jupiter's planets and moons. Bela" at the time of its formation
Astronomers rarely use their telescopes just to take pictures. The images in astrophysics are usually created by a process of scientific inference and imagination, the visual expression of which is sometimes an artist's impression of what emerges from the data but there are also some gems that are photographed directly
A dramatic ride with an audio track collected during the Jupiter mission's flyby of Ganymede — one of the highlights mission scientists shared in an overview at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union
Scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science and their partners on NASA's Juno space mission have revealed a series of new findings about the planet Jupiter and found a surprising similarity to Earth
Lucy will fly up to 400 km from the surface of its targets - asteroids that are in sync with the planet Jupiter, and will use its instruments and large antennas to study their geology, including composition, mass, density and volume.
The oxygen found in the frozen world is linked to the sublimation of ground ice
They are powerful, they are the size of Australia and no one imagined them until a few years ago - what is the secret of the storms at the poles of the largest planet in the solar system?
At the time of conjunction, both planets will be seen in the west direction, just after sunset over the southwestern horizon close to the setting sun. The next closest cluster - in March 2080 * And how does this relate to the way we discover planets outside the solar system?
