Juno can’t land on Jupiter because the planet is a gas giant. Instead, Juno orbited the planet in a polar elliptical pattern.It orbits at a speed of 0.1056 miles/s Juno observes Jupiter's gravity, composition, and other properties. So far Juno has been successful, but it is still actively orbiting the planet, so it’s mission isn’t
Have you ever done something in the past that only impacted you n in the future? The book “Orbiting Jupiter” by Gary Schmidt delivers the shattering story of Joseph, a father at thirteen, who has never seen his daughter Jupiter. After spending time in a juvenile facility, he's placed with a foster family on a farm in rural Maine. This is due to Joseph attacking and almost killing a teacher. When he was interrogated, he claimed that he was drugged, and his mind flew somewhere else at the time and he wasn’t in control of his actions. Although this was confirmed, he was still sent to a juvenile facility due to safety concerns. When the facility released him, he was sent to a foster home because of the abuse he suffered from his dad. Not only did the foster family look after him, they taught him family values and played a huge role in Josephs recovery. Throughout the story, the characters in Orbiting Jupiter
Jupiter was the last planet on this part of the mission and I was ready to go home. We have been here three years and it will take a year to get home. Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system. It is made up of gas, and it has a big red spot
On August 5th , 2011 in Canaveral, Florida NASA launched a spacecraft. The spacecraft called Juno was sent to orbit Jupiter. It took Juno five years to travel 2.9 billion kilometers to Jupiter. Juno was sent to gather information so we could answer more questions about the planet. Juno was getting closer to one of the gas giants in our solar system than we have ever gone before. On July 4th , Juno was in orbit with Jupiter after his long journey.
No one could have imagined, back in the mid-sixties, that the exploration of the moons of Jupiter laid not in the next century but only fifteen years ahead. Nor had anyone dreamed of the wonders that would be found there - although we can be quite certain that the discoveries of the twin Voyagers will one day be surpassed by even more unexpected finds. When 2001 was written, Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto were mere pinpoints of light in even the most
Pregnancy is an emotional and a lot of the times, a tough process, especially when you’re still a kid yourself. For teenagers, it is usually looked down upon and the young women who experience teen pregnancy are subjected to bullying, humiliation, and shame. Dealing with these harsh realities from society, along with the fact that you’re about to bring a child into the world, when you can barely care for yourself is stressful and sacrificial. In the film, Juno, teen pregnancy is portrayed in a few realistic ways, but overall it takes a lighter approach to teen pregnancy.
The planned Europa mission would conduct detailed reconnaissance of Jupiter 's moon Europa to see whether the icy moon could harbor conditions suitable for life. The mission would carry a highly capable, radiation-tolerant spacecraft that would perform repeated close flybys of the icy moon from a long, looping orbit around Jupiter.” this is pretty much it just to see if there 's life and drill a few holes this is what NASA has planned to do with their mission which is in phase two. (Now I haven’t talked two much throughout this and I will give you the reason why I have been working hard on my presentation so hard in fact that most of this is from my presentation and I’m throwing this together last minute to get this done and gone so without further Aude )
When scientists call Jupiter a gas giant, they are not overstating. If you parachuted into Jupiter hoping to hit the ground, you would never find firm landing. The gases pile on top of one another, creating layers that extend downward. Because there is no solid ground, the surface of Jupiter is described as the point where the atmospheric pressure is equal to that of Earth. At this point, the pull of gravity is almost two and a half times stronger than it is on our planet.
At 1000 times the size of the planet Earth, Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and its biggest influence. In fact, Jupiter could swallow all of the plants in the solar system twice and still have room. More than any other planet, Jupiter shapes our solar systems past, present, and future. Most recently, scientists have been attempting to unlock the gas giants’ secrets. On December 7th, 1995, NASA’s Galileo spacecraft dropped a 750 pound titanium probe into Jupiter’s atmosphere. The probe hurled into the cloud tops at over 1006 miles an hour. Even though Jupiter appears calm, quite, and serene from a distance. There are ferocious winds, lightning storms, and immense pressures. With such an enormous mass, the closer
The planet Jupiter, some 500 million miles from Earth is a very unique planet. Besides being 1200-1500 (estimates vary) times larger than the Earth, The planet Jupiter is surrounded by a small solar system by itself. The planet Jupiter has some 72 moons orbiting it at present count, and these moons come in all shapes, sizes, and physical variations. Many of these moons have quite interesting characteristics, such as the moon Io, which has volcanic geysers that blast hot material some 300 miles above its surface, and mountains reaching heights as tall as 52,000 feet. But in contrast to Io, the moon Europa is a frozen world. But,
If my favorite roller coaster were transported to either Mercury or Jupiter, I would transport the roller coaster to Jupiter. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, so there is a huge gravitational pull. Jupiter’s acceleration is approximately 265% more than Earth’s acceleration. Acceleration that intense would propel your roller coaster cart so fast the thrill would be out of this world! The high gravitational pull on Jupiter would create greater G-Forces, adding to greater thrill. The fall that holds all the GPE and kinetic energy of the roller coaster (first hill) would be extremely fast because of acceleration that depends on the mass and height of the roller coaster. On Jupiter, the roller coaster would be going fast enough
The Juno test will land at Jupiter on July 4, and turn on its thrusters keeping in mind the end goal to back off and go into space around the planet. Juno will make a sum of 37 circles around Jupiter (going into the restricted space between the cloud tops and the radiation belt that encompasses the planet), through the span of around 20 months. With its central goal complete, Juno will make a passing jump into Jupiter in February
Jupiter was named so from the Roman god of the sky and thunder. It has about 67 moons and is the largest planet. It’s known for its Great Red Spot which is believed to be a massive hurricane with several hundred mile per hour windspeeds. The brown lines which circle the planet are areas of much cooler temperatures. The four most well-known moons are Ganymede, Callisto, Io, and Europa.
The spacecraft has many research objectives such as creating global maps of Jupiter’s gravity, magnetic fields and the composition of the atmosphere. Juno’s many orbits around the planet will allow for thorough investigation of many different corners of the world. It will be surviving in extremely hostile environments in terms of radiation so it will orbit below the radiation belts.
Europa is the sixth of Jupiter's moons and the fourth largest. Europa is named after a Phoenician princess who was abducted by Zeus and taken to the island of Crete to be his lover. Europa was discovered by Galileo Galilei and possibly Simon Marius in 1610 and is one of the four Galilean satellites. The others being: Io, Ganymede, and Callisto. Europa is very different from the other moons of Jupiter. Instead of a rocky, cratered surface like Callisto and Ganymede, it instead has a smooth outer surface of cracked ice. There are very few sign of craters on Europa. In fact, only three large craters have been found. This indicates that Europa's surface is very young and active. In photographs sent back by orbiters, the surface resembles sea ice on Earth. Astronomers believe that beneath this layer of ice may exist an ocean, kept liquid by the moon's internal heat. This liquid ocean could be as much as 30 miles deep. The existence of deep ocean vents on the ocean floor on Earth have led some scientists to speculate that there could be a possibility of life on Europa. Around these deep sea vents on Earth are life forms that do not need sunlight to survive. They instead feed on bacteria that get their nutrients from chemicals seeping up from the ocean floor. This process is known as chemosynthesis. Scientists believe that similar life forms could evolve on Europa if a liquid ocean does indeed exist beneath its frozen surface.
