curiositydotcom The #mystery of Jupiter’s #core is one that #astronomers hope to solve with the #Juno #mission, which should arrive at the gas giant in July 2016. Gravitational measurements suggest that #Jupiter has a #center anywhere between 12 and 45 times the #mass of our own #planet. Because planetary formation seems to require a rocky or icy core at the outset, it’s probable that Jupiter had such a core at one time. Whether it still has a rocky core, a molten core, or no core at all today is up for debate. Research also suggests that the core region is surrounded by a liquid metallic #hydrogen, which is capable of conducting electricity. #space #planets #gasgiant #outerspace #solarsystem 1w
