Researchers Resolve the Mystery of the Colorful Bands Seen On Jupiter


Up to this point, the academic community had discussed how profound the colorful bands of alkali in Jupiter’s external environment truly went. The gas monster Jupiter’s renowned bands of cloud have been seen by space experts for over 100 years, however as of recently researchers have not been certain how precisely they reflect what was occurring somewhere inside the planet. Presently, a calculative report explaining how magnetic fields influence air streams has uncovered that at their deepest, they never plunge over 3% within the planet itself.  Spectral examination of the light reflecting from Jupiter has demonstrated the bands are composed of clouds of ammonia in the environment, giving the planet its stripes of red, white, yellow, brown and orange. Analyses done by scientists in Australia and the United States have recently assisted in creating a picture of the on-goings under these clouds.

A medical expert, Dr Navid Constantinou, from Australia’s ANU research school of earth sciences expressed that they knew the majority of the part of the jet streams in the atmosphere of the earth and the critical part it plays in the climate, however, they still have a lot to discover about the atmosphere of Jupiter. Researchers have been having debates since years regarding the profundity of the jet streams and deep it touches the surface Jupiter along with others and why they are not visible in the interiors of the Sun.  NASA’s spacecraft, known as Juno, recently provided evidence which directed various fly-bys of the gas monster, proposed the jet streams came to up to 1,860 miles (3,000km) underneath the clouds of Jupiter’s. Another individual from the research group, Dr. Jeffrey Parker from Livermore National Laboratory in the United States, confirmed that their hypothesis demonstrated how the jet streams were smothered by the magnetic field of the planet.
