Gone are the days when one has to wonder how beautiful Jupiter is. Well, this is thanks to NASA – particularly its Juno spacecraft. The latter just recently completed its eight close flyby of the planet. And as expected, it returned with some of the most stunning images.
This is definitely a huge milestone in the field of science. Juno reportedly came within 2,100 miles (3,400 kilometers) of Jupiter. At first, the data transfer was delayed due to solar conjunction in which the Sun obscured communications in space. Nonetheless, the data came in and scientists at NASA were hard at work processing all information.
The images from Juno included the planet’s storms, poles, different swirling patterns, and a snap of the volcanic moon called Io. Interestingly, the spacecraft is already set for its next close flyby. The space agency revealed that more pictures of the planet’s surface would be acquired from the upcoming mission.
Check out the images below and get ready to be amazed!
Following the return of Juno, NASA released new images of Jupiter to the public.
The pictures were processed by Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran.
They both utilized all raw data sent by the spacecraft.
There is actually a reason why images require processing from NASA.
It is because pictures are taken with blue, red, green, and infrared filters.
These are then to be combined in order to obtain an acceptable image.
Juno required a strict rocking-firing calculation. Otherwise it would have moved past the planet.
The £890m spacecraft took at least five years to reach Jupiter.
Apart from taking images, Juno was tasked to explore Jupiter’s magnetic field and atmosphere. This was all possible thanks to the specially-designed sensors built to withstand the planet’s gravitational and magnetic force.
Intermittent Fasting Key To Longer Life – Harvard
It’s not just helpful when losing weight.
New research from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health suggests that manipulating mitochondrial networks inside cells — either by fasting or by a genetic manipulation that mimics dietary restriction — may improve health and increase lifespan. The study titled "Dietary Restriction and AMPK Increase Lifespan via Mitochondrial Network and Peroxisome Remodeling" was published online in Cell Metabolism.
The findings shed light on the cells’ declining ability to process energy over time, which leads to aging and age-related diseases. It also investigates how interventions, such as periods of fasting, might promote healthy aging.
The scientists used C. elegans (nematode worms), which live just two weeks, for their lab experiments.
Astronomers Just Spotted First ‘Mystery Visitor’ From Another Solar System
“We have been waiting for this day for decades,” NASA said. “So far, everything indicates this is likely an interstellar object.”
Just recently, astronomers from all over the globe have been baffled with a new discovery – a mysterious unidentified object has been found passing through our solar system. It remains unclear whether the said object, which has been described by many as “small and fast-moving,” is an asteroid or a comet.
NASA, however, has confirmed that they do not have any idea of its origins and that it isn’t behaving like other local space rocks. So it’s highly likely that it is NOT from our own solar system? Many are inclined to believe so.
Once confirmed, NASA said this discovery would mark “the first interstellar object to be observed and confirmed by astronomers."
A Robot Could Detect Cancer In Less Than A Second, Study Found
If this could become a diagnostic test, it could save millions of lives.
Today, one of the most dreaded diseases across the globe is cancer. Over the past decades, the cases of cancer in people of all ages have soared high, killing millions of individuals. The problem is, detecting cancer is difficult, especially since potent diagnostic tests are still not available.
Now, a new research suggests that artificial intelligence (AI) could detect cancer in less than a second, particularly colorectal cancer.
An artificial intelligence program could detect cancer under a second.
