I think that should lay this theory to rest once and for all.

The burning Jupiter is based on a "seer's" visions (she's been predicting this off and on for different years) that are probably based on the Arthur C. Clarke scenario in his "2010" novel.
And even Clark went on to say:

D. Pennington (Letters, 9 April) refers to the forthcoming impact of comet Shoemaker-Levy on Jupiter during the last week of July - the most dramatic astronomical event of this century, if not of all history. He states: 'I understood that Jupiter's mass was just short of that required for self-ignition, which would enable it to become a second sun. I hope experts have taken into account the possibility of artificial (sic) ignition. . .'
Precisely such an event - though with a somewhat different scenario - was the climax of 2010: Odyssey II, and was superbly rendered in Peter Hyams's movie. Though I do not for a moment believe that this will actually happen (Jupiter would have to possess ten times its present mass to become a sun, and that of any comet is quite negligible), I am not averse to generating a little alarm - and publicity!

The farside images are maps of wave speed variations with locations of faster wave speed shown darker. These darker regions indicate locations where there is an accumulation of magnetic field on the far surface. The method is certainly not noise free and produces noisier images when there is some data missing due to telemetry gaps.

So the goal posts have been moved to March? What happens if March comes and go's and Jupiter (or Saturn for that matter) have not ignited? What will you say then? Will you accept it as bunk or accept a later date sighted by some all too common excuse?
