Jupiter

Take an amazing trip to Jupiter

Jupiter

Gas planets do not have solid surfaces, but buildup in pressure and density as one goes deeper towards the core. Different colors represent different depths into Jupiter’s atmosphere. Note that the atmosphere of Jupiter is so dense and cold that it behaves as a fluid rather than a gas. At the point where we see atmosphere features the pressure is 5-10 times that times that of the Earths atmosphere pressure. I’d take a warm suit since it’s cold and it’s 2,043. One pattern occurs when a fluid slips by a second fluid of a different density. Such an event is known as a viscous flow and produces wave-like features at the boundary of the two fluids that’s why features at the boundary of the two fluids. I’d take a suit that warms me so that I don’t get cold. A second pattern produced by a stream of fluid in a constant medium, called turbulent flow. I’d take a lot of oxygen to Jupiter. The stream breaks up into individual elements called called eddies. So I’d take water and food to Jupiter. These eddies can develop into cyclones. Cyclones develop due to the Coriolis effect where the lower latitudes travel faster than the higher latitudes producing a net spin on a pressure zone. The cyclones on Jupiter are regions of local high or low pressure spun in such a fashion.
