New Study Pins Down Jupiter's Birthday

https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... -birthday/

Quote:
A new study suggests Jupiter and Saturn likely took shape within the first 4 million years of the solar system's formation, which further supports the core accretion model, Benjamin Weiss, co-author of the study and professor of planetary sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), told Space.com.

Lava waves the size of Wales spotted on Jupiter moon Io

https://www.theguardian.com/science/201 ... er-moon-io

Quote:
By taking regular snapshots of Io as Europa passed by, the scientists recorded how much infrared light was emanating from different strips of the huge lava-filled bowl. From this they created a heat map that showed how the temperature varied across the crater. The brightest regions indicated the freshest, warmest lava, while dimmer regions pointed to older and colder material. “The temperature tells us how recently the magma has been exposed,” said Katherine de Kleer at the University of California, Berkeley.

NASA's Juno Spacecraft to Fly Over Jupiter's Great Red Spot July 10

https://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/nasas- ... ot-july-10

Quote:
The data collection of the Great Red Spot is part of Juno's sixth science flyby over Jupiter's mysterious cloud tops. Perijove (the point at which an orbit comes closest to Jupiter's center) will be on Monday, July 10, at 6:55 p.m. PDT (9:55 p.m. EDT). At the time of perijove, Juno will be about 2,200 miles (3,500 kilometers) above the planet's cloud tops. Eleven minutes and 33 seconds later, Juno will have covered another 24,713 miles (39,771 kilometers) and will be directly above the coiling crimson cloud tops of Jupiter's Great Red Spot. The spacecraft will pass about 5,600 miles (9,000 kilometers) above the Giant Red Spot clouds. All eight of the spacecraft's instruments as well as its imager, JunoCam, will be on during the flyby.
