he he i just been reading this thread and boy have you guys made me giggle, i just want to ask a couple of things and let you all know a couple of
facts about this issue...
so questions first... do any of know anything about fusion, plasma and pressure levels?
does anybody know anything about the core of jupiter, cus none of the space agencies do.
why are all of you saying we would be toast if it did light, thats one of stupidest things i have every hurd, its not a giant nuclear war head you
know?? what protects the earth from the sun? and arn't we actually closer to the sun than we are to jupiter? also isn't the sun a lot bigger than
jupiter?? some of you people seriously make me laugh
ok now to some facts... all the information about jupiter is speculation, we have no solid evidence of pressure levels of whats happening bellow the
the surface of jupiter, we don't even know what is at the core of jupiter
the temperature under the gas layer is said to be about 7000 kelvin composing of mainly liquid helium and hydrogen, and they ESTIMATE the core to be
at a temperature of about 20,000 kelvin now this don't sound too bad until you notice that these scientist in there great wisdom have stated there is
frozen layer between the core and the metalic helium,,, i mean ello there is something quite wrong with your instruments or this theory to think you
can get frozen ice between 7000 kelvin in temp and 20,000 kelvin in temp i would go as far as saying that is just stupidity to state.
ok still on the core i guess they don't know whats there cus they can't image it and that explains this ice theory they got, "oh it must be
let me put this into prospective for you...the core is 10 times the size of earth roughly and its under about 80,000 bar pressure even if the core is
not in a plasma-tic state its going to be seriously hot and ice just is not an option for a planet omitting serious amounts of heat let alone a magnet
field ass huge as jupiters
jupiter is still contracting witch means the pressure levels are still rising, as it contracts it will continue to exert more force on the molecule's
inside its core making it hotter.
i will be quite frank with you now based on estimates jupiter is no where close to igniting but as it contracts there is a strong possibility it will
reach the pressure and temperature for a small burn cycle, i think at the core there is a very unstable ball of iron and rock and this is fluidic and
still heating up explaining the magnetic field being the size it is, and its frequent irregularities that where measured by casini and the other probe
i can't remember its name now.
it won't explode its simply spinning too fast and when it does ignite long into the future witch i think it will, it will be a slow steady thing, its
not a star or even a red dwarf, one thing you guys did get right, it wouldn't burn for long in the respect of a star or even a red dwarf, a blink of
an eye is probably the best way to think of it as quick as it lit it would die out again, its not big enough to sustain long term fusion.
thats my 5c on this subject anyway
