One of the favorite topics of our news is about moon landing. So, on this day (on September 20, 1970) the Soviet Union's Luna 16 moon probe landed on the moon.
Scientists have discovered 12 new Jupiter moons around the giant planet. A team of researchers led by Scott Sheppard from the Carnegie Institution for Science, discovered these 12 new Jupiter moons. So, after finding 12 new moons now it is considered that Jupiter has 79 known orbiting moons.View More 12 New Jupiter Moons Has Been Discovered Orbiting the Giant Planet
NASA has discovered a possible volcano on Jupiter Io Moon. The data has been collected by NASA’s Juno spacecraft and the spacecraft has used its Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument. The x-ray data were collected on Dec. 16, 2017, when Juno was about 470,000 kilometers away from the moon.View More Juno Spacecraft Discovers Volcano on Jupiter Moon Io NASA Reported
NASA scientists used James Webb Space Telescope to study Great Red Spot of Jupiter. The telescope is one of the most ambitious and complex space observatories that ever built. The aim of the observations is to study planets, including the mysteries still held by the planets in our own solar system from Mars and beyond.View More One of the Premier NASA’s Telescope to Target Jupiter’s Great Red Spot
NASA’s JunoCam has just taken this color-enhanced image when the Juno performed its 13th flyby of Jupiter. As indicated NASA the spacecraft was around 4,900 miles from the tops of the planet. “The North Temperate Belt is the prominent reddish-orange band left of center. It rotates in the same direction as the planet and is predominantly cyclonic, which in the northern hemisphere means its features spin in a counter-clockwise direction. Within the belt are two gray-colored anticyclones,” says NASA.View More NASA Created Dark and Stormy Image of Jupiter by JunoCam
Scientists explain the origin of Jupiter lightning. 39 years old mystery is solved by NASA’s Juno mission. The Juno mission shows how Jupiter lighting is similar to Earth’s lightning. While, in some ways, the two types of lightning are polar opposites.View More What is the origin of Jupiter lightning? – Juno Solves the Mystery
There is no secret that the Earth has only one natural satellite (our Moon), which is thought to have formed about 4.51 billion years ago, but how many moons are there in our Solar System? In the Solar System we have some planets that don’t have any other moon, but we have some planets that have approximately more than 53 moons such as Jupiter.View More How Many Moons Does Our Planets Have in Our Solar System?
The sound of space is truly strange. The sound of Earth! “It’s called chorus,” explains Craig Kletzing of the University of Iowa. “This is one of the clearest examples we’ve ever heard”. The Researcher explains the sound of Earth. “This is what the radiation belts would sound like to a human being if we had radio antennas for ears,” says Kletzing, whose team at the University of Iowa built the “EMFISIS” (Electric and Magnetic Field Instrument Suite and Integrated Science) receiver used to pick up the signals.View More Scientists Reveal the Sound of Space That Is Really Terrifying
NASA Juno spacecraft captured this extraordinary image. As NASA described “extraordinary view” was captured during Juno’s 12 close flyby of the gas giant. It was snapped on April 1, with the spacecraft coming as close as 17,329 kilometers (10,768 miles) to the planet during the flyby.View More NASA’s Juno Spacecraft Took an Unusual Image of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot
In this article we are going to introduce you the largest moons of Jupiter. Jupiter is considered to be the planet of having the largest number of moons in our Solar System. There are 69 known moons of Jupiter, but the most massive or better to say the largest moons of Jupiter are the Galilean four moons. These objects were discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei and Simon Marius which were the first objects found to orbit a body that was neither Earth nor the Sun.View More The Largest Moons of Jupiter
