Researchers have found similarities between Jupiter’s atmospheric dynamics and the vortices in the Earth’s oceans.
NASA’s Juno mission, which began orbiting Jupiter in July 2016, has completed its 38th close mission to the asteroid planet, emitting audio with sounds captured as it flew over the world’s largest moon, Canyme. Storms and cyclones.
“This soundtrack It is wild enough For the first time in more than two decades it feels like you’re traveling on a Juno Canyme boat. ” Indian Juno is the lead researcher at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Scott Bolton this Friday.
Created the audio clip Electrical and magnetic radio waves Created by the planet’s magnetic field. “If you listen carefully, you may hear a sudden change in high frequencies around the middle of the record, which indicates the entry of a different area into the magnetosphere of the canine,” Bolton added.
Researchers have also shared new images of hurricanes at Jupiter’s poles. According to the SETI Institute, the Earth may match the round white storm seen in the company’s own tweeted photo, while the size of the largest storms on Earth will be with small white puffs.
Seen by Leah Siegelman, a scientist working with the Juno team Similarities between Jupiter’s Atmospheric Dynamics and Earth’s Ocean Cycles: “When I saw the richness of the turbulence around Hurricane Jovian, with those little strands and vortices, it reminded me of the turbulence you see in the sea around the vortices.”
Although Jupiter’s energy system is much larger than Earth’s, understanding the dynamics of the Jovian atmosphere will help researchers to understand the physical mechanisms that work on our own planet.
