Hubble discovers something in Jupiter that's just like Earth
Auroras in Jupiter look similar to those on?EarthScientists using the Hubble telescope have spotted something very similar to something we have on Earth. The auroras in Jupiter that are stunningly beautiful. The auroras look very similar?to the Earthly counterparts found in?Alaska, Canada, and Iceland.
Space Telescope - The extraordinary vivid glows shown in the new observations are known as auroras. They are created when high energy particles enter a planet?s atmosphere near its magnetic poles and collide with atoms of gas. As well as producing beautiful images, this programme aims to determine how various components of Jupiter?s auroras respond to different conditions in the solar wind, a stream of charged particles ejected from the Sun.
This observation programme is perfectly timed as NASA?s Juno spacecraft is currently in the solar wind near Jupiter and will enter the orbit of the planet in early July 2016. While Hubble is observing and measuring the auroras on Jupiter, Juno is measuring the properties of the solar wind itself; a perfect collaboration between a telescope and a space probe .
?These auroras are very dramatic and among the most active I have ever seen?, says Jonathan Nichols from the University of Leicester, UK, and principal investigator of the study. ?It almost seems as if Jupiter is throwing a firework party for the imminent arrival of Juno.?
Auroras are spectacular to view. They're usually green in color when viewed from Earth. The Auroras in Jupiter look blue in color, but equally amazing to look at.
We haven't been around that long.
It's very?hard to grasp is the immenseness of space. We have very little chance to explore it all in our lifetime. We may not ever travel to the end of it, if it ends that is. There are so many other galaxies that we won't witness because they're so many light years away and we're only on the infancy of technology. Think about it, we haven't been that smart for that long. It's 2016, which is a tiny fraction of time in comparison to the existence of everything else. We don't even know where we came from. We still search for aliens, but we forgot to look in the mirror.
The search?for aliens is an ongoing debate and everyone's waiting for that one big day, but I think we need to stop looking. Isn't it possible that WE are the aliens? We are the advanced technology. We grow humans inside of other humans. We look weird. We invade other areas and blow things up. If you think about it, we technically come from outer space. I know, mind blown, right?
Don't look?up anymore, look next to you. You might find an?alien.
Enjoy the auroras in Jupiter, my fellow martians!
