Juno Finds that Jupiter’s Gravitational Field is “Askew”
universetoday.com ^

Posted on 10/27/2017 7:55:03 AM PDT by BenLurkin

Jupiter’s gravity field varies with depth, which indicated that material is flowing as far down as 3,000 km (1,864 mi). Combined with information obtained during previous perijoves, this latest data suggests that Jupiter’s core is small and poorly defined. This flies in the face of previous models of Jupiter, which held that the outer layers are gaseous while the interior ones are made up of metallic hydrogen and a rocky core.

Another interesting find was that Jupiter’s gravity field varies with depth, which indicated that material is flowing as far down as 3,000 km (1,864 mi). Combined with information obtained during previous perijoves, this latest data suggests that Jupiter’s core is small and poorly defined. This flies in the face of previous models of Jupiter, which held that the outer layers are gaseous while the interior ones are made up of metallic hydrogen and a rocky core.

...

Other big surprises which Juno has revealed since it entered orbit around Jupiter include the clusters of cyclones located at each pole. These were visible to the probe’s instruments in both the visible and infrared wavelengths as it made its first maneuver around the planet, passing from pole to pole. Since Juno is the first space probe in history to orbit the planet this way, these storms were previously unknown to scientists.

If those climate change deniers on Jupiter only signed the Paris Accord, everything would be peaceful and calm...

"Jupiter global warming"

And the solution is more Socialism.

Worker: Trouble at mill.
Lady: Oh no - what kind of trouble?
Worker: One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
Lady: Pardon?
Worker: One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
Lady: I don't understand what you're saying.
Worker: [slightly irritatedly and with exaggeratedly clear accent] One of the cross beams has gone out askew on the treadle.
Lady: Well what on earth does that mean?
Worker: *I* don't know - Mr Wentworth just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the mill, that's all - I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

Juno jupiters gravitational pull is askew?

i dint know. jew?

no, they are to blame though.

It might just be that Jupiter has no “surface,” that the atmosphere just becomes denser from outer to inner.

How do we fix this?
Maybe more taxes?....

There is a great segment on this on a Joe Rogan radio segment.

This has been known, or investigated for a while, and the explanation has to be the presence of dark matter disrupting the gravitational pull.

They found this similarly by looking at the tails of certain clusters of planets orbiting a super-sun or star, in that the time it takes to fully rotate around was substantially off. So, it came down to either the presence of dark matter or that the theory of gravity wasn’t concrete enough to measure the pull.

Through other tests, they were able to knock out the possibility of the theory of gravity being off, and the majority of astro-physicists have gotten behind the dark-matter theory.

What’s even more interesting is there was a article posted here not too long ago explaining that if what these same scientists back (that is, dark matter theory) is correct is some form, then the “big bang theory,” loses some momentum. Something like 75% of the universe is made up of dark matter, (the number is high, but I don’t know the exact figure) and if that percentage remained constant all the way back to the forming of the universe, there is no conceivable way that actual matter (what we see and can touch) would have been able to combat it.

In summary, if their idea of dark matter is true, and there is a sizable amount of this in our universe, spanning all the way back to day one, it would have been so overbearing and preventative of the formation of actual matter which created planets and carbon based life. Thus, there would have had to have been something unbelievably powerful or influential to have formed the organic matter....

Sound familiar to anybody? ;)

At least they are blaming it on a dead Democrat governor, Reubin Askew, rather than on Trump.

I like how they have a round number for kilometers but an exact figure for miles.

If the core is small it has to be dense. I thought that would be obvious because gas giants fail to become stars.
