Sharing is everything!


I was skimming through the channels yesterday and i saw gases swirling in the TV.I stopped changing the channels and saw what it was and was i amazed.And i also learned quite a few from it.
It was Jupiter!!The largest planet in the solar system.

These are the things i learned from Discovery Channel

  • Jupiter saves Earth from getting hit by asteroids,comets etc.How???Since Jupiter has the highest gravity in the system,any object passing through the system gets attracted by the gravity of Jupiter and so Earth is saved.
  • One or two of the Jupiter’s moon (Io i think) may support basic life forms as it contains water!
  • Jupiter has NO SOLID GROUND!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ .This is what made my jaw drop down in excitement!!!!

A satellite was launched (didn’t note the date…but i think it was some time back) and after revolving around the Earth to gain momentum to reach Jupiter (time taken to reach Jupiter:6 whole years!!!) it started its journey.

Then after reaching theย  field of gravity,the satellite launched a probe into it to collect samples of sand etc…but the probe never landed….it traveled for 57 minutes and never landed…it was full of gases gases and more gases!!The probe was then destroyed by the atmosphere of Jupiter.

The inner layer of Jupiter is in molten state (iron and forgot what the other metal was!! hehe)
Will add pics soon! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I didn’t say this post was boring (you could see, i referred this as useful). Genearlly, you are not writing anything interesting now-a-days, that’s what i said.
    If you are REALLY interested in Astronomy you could start a separate blog for that. And, keep this one personal.
