Jupiter planet, the biggest planet in the solar system. Is there any water in this planet? US Space Research Organization, NASA researchers claim that Jupiter planet has water in ‘Great Red Spot’. In the ‘Great Red Spot’ there is a cyclone running more than 350 years. NASA scientists found water in the cloud over the storm.
Jupiter is a mysterious and biggest planet in our solar system. It also closest planet to Sun. Scientists have been working century to century to know the structure of this planet. Most frequent question was, is there any water in Jupiter planet? If so how much? Finally, it is revealed.
Under the leadership of astrophysicist Gordon L. Bjoraker, scientists from the United States of Maryland were using telescopes to test Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. While looking for heat radiation, scientists find the wavelength of water particles in the telescope suddenly.
Carbon monoxide also found with the water. From this, it is assumed that there are two to nine times more oxygen in Jupiter than Sun. Scientists have been talking about the possibility of water existence in Jupiter planet. Now the evidence is really proved.
In a statement, Gordon Bjoraker said that ice was found in many satellites of Jupiter. So, it is not surprising to find water in the planet. Due to the massive gravity of Jupiter planet, water is not impossible. After the discovery of water and carbon monoxide found in Jupiter, the scientists report that the planet has many oxygen.
Bjoraker also said that after finding the water and carbon monoxide in Jupiter, scientists say that as there is water, there should be oxygen on the planet.
Steven M. Levin, researcher at NASA‘s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said that water level of Jupiter will help us to know about the planet’s structure. It is also important to know how much water is available across the planet.
The dark clouds of the Great Red Spot of Jupiter planet make electromagnetic energy measurements even more difficult. And for this reason, scientists could easily fail.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft was sending the Great Red Spot information after every 53 days while it turned around the Jupiter planet from north to south. If this data collect from Juno Space Station will support the information found by the scientists, then finding water will open new horizons from the earth surface to space. After using this technology, scientists can start the search for water in Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
