We knew Jupiter was weird. Now we're finding out HOW weird.

Juno just finished its sixth orbit, but scientists have published the results they found after the first couple of orbits (in two main papers and dozens of others)...

Juno did an especially close flyby of Jupiter's great red spot on July 11th.



And that's just the optical instruments. I wonder what all the rest saw!

From the article Kyuss posted:
Quote:
Or maybe. Maybe not. The result scientists found after that first orbit is that Jupiter may have a core, but it’s ... fuzzy. Dilute. It may be bigger than first thought, too, containing 7-25 times the mass of Earth (Jupiter’s total mass is 318 times Earth’s). I had to laugh when I read that; I can imagine groups of scientists on either side of this issue arguing for years over whether Jupiter has a core or not, and then finding out that, in a way, they may both be right.
Hydrogen is an invasive gas which forces its way into crystalline materials and makes them brittle.
