Contrary to previously thought, scientists are making a discovery about the largest planet in the solar system

An international team of astronomers has found that Jupiter’s atmosphere does not have a uniform distribution, meaning that the gases on the planet’s surface are not uniformly distributed.

The interior contains more minerals than the outer, which adds 11 to 30 Earth masses or 3-9% by mass of Jupiter’s total mass.

The team examined the distribution of minerals, giving information about how Jupiter formed. The minerals are not evenly distributed throughout the envelope and are more present inside than outside.

There are a total of 11 to 30 earth mass minerals. “A gas giant like Jupiter has two options for obtaining minerals during its formation: by the accumulation of small pebbles or large planets,” says Miguel. We now see the mineral wealth of Jupiter, which could not have been achieved before. Played a role. “

“The inner part of the atmosphere contains heavier elements than the outer, which means that the mass in the atmosphere decreases externally by a slope rather than a homogeneous mass. Previously, we thought there was heat transfer to Jupiter,” Miguel explains. , Like boiling water, which is thoroughly mixed. But our results show otherwise. “
