Seriously about to dung my pants.
This better not happen in my lifetime.

I always believed that this was meant to be a binary star system, but something went wrong with Jupiter.


There is nothing wrong with Jupiter. It simply doesn't have anywhere near the required mass for nuclear fusion reactions to start in its core. The mass threshold for that is approximately 8 per cent of the mass of the Sun. Jupiter has 0.1 per cent of the mass of the Sun. In other words, it would need to be 80 times more massive for it to become a star !

Don't believe the rubbish that is spouted about Jupiter being a "failed star". It isn't even close.

I have just been alerted by another ATS post that Planets do not exist, apparently they where invented by NASA. It's some big conspiracy that I am unable to understand, but the OP has proof.
Since Planets don't exist, Jupiter doesn't exist, and thus cannot explode.


Now seriously, Jupiter is not a typical planet it, apparently, was a forming star that due to it's lack of mass could not complete the cycle. Now it is one of the "gas planets", as opposed to the "solid planets", such as Earth, Mars, Venus etc.

Since it doesn't possess the critical mass to evolve into a star I really don't see how it could explode...But I'm no Astrophysicist so my opinion isn't worth much...

Pravda is no longer state run. It's now more of a supermarket checkout rag. Just the sort of place you would expect to find articles like this.
en.wikipedia.org...

From that wiki link above

The Pravda is mentioned in the movie "2010"

Do we all know what happens in the movie "2010"?
Jupiter becomes a second sun.

Peace

Jupiter hasn't exploded in the last few billion years, so I'd say statistics are on our side.

Jupiter is far too small to provide enough energy to become a sun. Even if it somehow did, it would die VERY swiftly, since it would run out of fuel fast. The sun has some 240 million trillion trillion grams of hydogen available as fuel. Jupiter of course, would have nothing close to this. The movie 2010 was cool, but I believe they were saying alien technology is what was able to make it into a sun.

But a sun? No, I think not.

What a horse pooey. I checked the website of Pravda. The jupiter photo is not jupiter itself. Some another planet or satellite.

That may be true, but how, and why will it Explode in the first place.

Exactly -- that article didn't really explain why they think Jupiter would explode, nor give any evidence indicating that it would ever explode...

...They might as well had written an article stating that "If the Earth exploded, it would kill all the life that was on Earth."

Maybe its better that jupiter explodes, It was blocking our telescope view anyways .

Good point! With Jupiter gone there would fewer places for bad planets to hide as the sneak up on Earth.

As usual ... I haven't had the time to go through the entire thread; however I would like to direct all interested members to an article, I believe it was written in 2005.

I archived it almost only because I found its topic so bizarre; however with this current discussion it might also be relevant.

The Lucifer Project




[...] NASA has crashed a plutonium-carrying RTG into a similar atmosphere before which may have resulted in an explosion the size of Earth's diameter near the equator of Jupiter as observed by many and imaged by Olivier Meeckers of Belgium on October 19, 2003. Space.com carried the story “Mystery Spot on Jupiter Baffles Astronomers.”5 The craft, Galileo, entered into Jupiter near its equator very close to where the “mystery spot” later developed (Diagram A). It is possible that if the explosion were larger or deeper, Jupiter could have reached ignition. The fact remains that a very suspicious bruise appeared on Jupiter 28 days after Galileo made its plunge there. It is important to mention that it is rare for a comet or meteor to impact Jupiter at the equator so it is unlikely this was the cause.

Poet1b: Just to keep records straight, the distance to Sun and Jupiter are not in thousands of miles but MILLIONS.. like 93 Million and 360 Million..

Jupiter is a gas-giant, and it has been estimated that if Jupiter was at least ten times as large as it is now, it would have been a star.

So it seems to me, there is no danger of it exploding now!

The Sun is 93 million miles from Earth not 93,000. And Jupiter is 390 million miles from Earth and not 390,000.

I guess this will help the illuminati with their depopulation ambitions

Due to the lack of any factual science to back up these claims, and due to the need to keep Space Exploration Forum science based, I feel this thread should be moved to an area more open to pure speculation.

This thread will be moved to Skunk Works.

I take it you have had 1st hand experiance of dropping the motherload.


Dave,
Oh yeah, just wait till you're in your 50's and you go in to get a colonoscopy check up. Two days before, the Doctor gives you this liquid to "clean you out"...and beleive me.. IT DOES !

Humans are only "Primates"!

So I guess they think and behave as "Monkeys" without tails.

Why is Humanity feeling so insecure about everything, as though like little Primate children, having bad dreams brought on by mistrust and superstition?

Doesn't anyone TRUST Life at all, and can only put their feeble trust in $$$ ?

Where is Knowledge?

Where is Understanding?

Where is Wisdom?

Where is Trust in Life that all has been created through?

When is humanity going to wake up and understand they are only the Product of an Optical Based Processing System?

When is humanity going to wake up and understand what the Universe, including their world and themselves, actually is and Not what it appears to be.

What produces your Universe, is Nothing like the End result, or manifestation of what you see and experience!

You can’t forecast the future based on the Past!

All is pre-written as a Multi-optional Story, that starts from a single origin and finishes at another destination, but where the End is, so is The Beginning!

Jupiter would need to be eighty times as massive as it is now for it to have any chance of becoming a star.
