The latest discovery based on NASA data shows that Jupiter has huge water clouds, a large amount of oxygen and the possibility of a special kind of life.
The clouds of this country are found right in the Great Red Spot - the red storm that existed for centuries on Jupiter. Water clouds lie deep inside the stormy area and show red color through color-corrected images to see NASA clearly. In addition, estimating the amount of oxygen on this planet is two to nine times that of the sun.
This finding reinforces a NASA hypothesis that there is a "strange life" form in the text of NASA's call on this giant gas planet.
The above data were published in an article published in the Astronomical Journal in the journal. Research led by Imke de Pater Professor of the University of California at Berkeley (USA) led the latest NASA data about Jupiter. The study also revealed an interesting fact about Jupiter: it was formed from another place, then "migrated" to its current location.
Gordon Bjoraker, a scientist, said they observed the Jupiter's red storm closely with a heat-sensitive telescope and discovered the chemical signature of water. It is really the same H 2 O water as the earth and very abundant!
Previously, NASA had stated that in a certain height of Jupiter's atmosphere there existed the necessary chemicals for some strange form of life.
This new finding is a huge supplement for Juno's research - NASA's space probe ship operating on Jupiter. Juno is also searching for water using infrared spectroscopy and microwave radioactivity, capable of exploring deep into Jupiter's atmosphere.
Now scientists are continuing to find out if the planet has ice and ice cores.
Previous studies have shown that the upper layer of Jupiter is full of ammonia cloud (NH 3 ), a gas that has a bad smell. The layer below the NH 3 cloud is NH 4 SH cloud and below, it is water clouds.
Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System and is believed to be the first planet to form by absorbing the remaining elements after the formation of the sun. In addition to Jupiter itself, its moon Europa is also a major target for NASA and other space agencies around the world in the search for alien life.
