Astronomers reveal most exclusive findings about Jupiter, a huge, twirling mass of transcending storm mists, and any individual who lives on Earth realizes that tempests are fabulous at delivering lightning. At the point when NASA sent its Voyager 1 rocket on its outing through our Solar System, its flyby of Jupiter uncovered that Jupiter does surely have lightning, however it wasn’t delivering similar sorts of radio flags that researchers know about from lightning here on Earth. Presently, about four decades later, NASA at long last knows why.
However, the earlier missions may very well not have been sufficiently close to hear the signs, or they may have been to a great extent obstructed by Jupiter’s own air. Presently, notwithstanding, Juno can hear the signs the others missed, and that implies the lightning on Jupiter is quite part like our own… yet not precisely the same. Notwithstanding explaining the enigma, the specialists found that the cause of Jupiter’s lightning is altogether different from what we’re utilized to without anyone else planet.
The findings of the research have been just disclosed in the latest research paper of scientific journal – Nature, which explain about the source of the results and how did the astronomers explored them from the Juno to resolve the strange lightning mystery of Jupiter.
Study’s lead author, Shannon Brown from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA, said that, “No matter what planet you’re on, lightning bolts act like radio transmitters—sending out radio waves when they flash across a sky. Many theories were offered up to explain it, but no one theory could ever get traction as the answer.”
