Enormous Storm May Be Heating Jupiter's Atmosphere, Scientists

Reuters via voanews.com
July 27, 2016

CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA - Scientists have long wondered why
Jupiter's upper atmosphere has temperatures similar to those of
Earth, even though the biggest planet in the solar system is five
times farther away from the sun.

The answer may be the Great Red Spot, an enormous storm big
enough to swallow three Earths that has been raging on Jupiter
for at least three centuries, a study showed Wednesday.

Using an infrared telescope at Hawaii's Mauna Kea Observatory,
scientists discovered that the upper atmosphere above the Great
Red Spot  the largest storm in the solar system  is hundreds of
degrees hotter than anywhere else on the planet.

It could be a coincidence or a major clue, said Boston University
physicist James O'Donoghue, lead scientist of the study published
in the journal Nature.

The storm spans 13,670 miles by 7,456 miles (22,000 kilometers by
12,000 kilometers) and is located in Jupiter's lower atmosphere.
The top of its clouds reach altitudes of about 31 miles (50

The newly found hot spot must be heated from below, the study
concluded, though the exact process by which heat is transferred
remains unknown. The most likely energy source is acoustic waves,
the study said.

Color change

Scientists also are unsure about why the storm is brick red and
about why it has changed color over time. In a 1900 report in the
Seattle Post-Intelligencer, scientists described the oval storm
as salmon pink. Recent images from the Hubble Space Telescope
show it has become tinged with orange and more circular.

Like a hurricane on Earth, the spot's center is relatively calm,
but farther out, winds reach 270 mph to 425 mph (430 kph to 680
kph). Because there is no land on Jupiter, which is made almost
entirely of hydrogen and helium, the storm can never make
landfall and dissipate.

"The Great Red Spot is like a wheel that's wedged between two
conveyor belts running in opposite directions," said planetary
scientist Glenn Orton, with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, California. "One is adding momentum to it at the top,
and another is adding momentum at the bottom. Together, they feed
the vortex and essentially keep it alive."

But the storm may not be alive much longer. It has been shrinking
for the last 100 years, Orton said.

More information is expected from NASA's Juno spacecraft, which
arrived at Jupiter on July 4.

thousands of miles wide, was taken by the Galileo imaging system
on June 26, 1996.

Vacuum Tube Transportation Company Opens Its First Factory

George Putic
July 28, 2016

Ground transportation that's much faster than modern planes made
another major step forward with the announcement that U.S.
company Hyperloop One opened its first factory this week outside
Las Vegas.

Its 170 engineers, technicians and highly skilled workers are
expected to build a working prototype of a superfast vacuum tube
transportation device by 2017.

The name Hyperloop was introduced in 2012 by the U.S.-based South
African billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla
Motors and SpaceX Corporation.

According to his idea, passengers sitting in a closed capsule
would travel at high speed through a near-vacuum tube with very
low air resistance, while magnetic levitation would keep the pod
friction-free. The underground or aboveground travel would be
immune to weather changes and collisions and would require little

The projected top speed is set to be 1,220 kilometers per hour
(750 miles per hour).

A pre-feasibility study envisages a Hyperloop tube built between
Stockholm and Helsinki, cutting the travel between the two cities
from 3 1/2 hours to about 30 minutes.

  <figcaption>A strange purple blob was spotted in deep waters off California. (Nautilus)</figcaption>
<h4>VOA News<br /><smaller>July 27, 2016</smaller></h4>
<p>Deep-sea researchers aboard the Nautilus have found a strange creature lurking in the waters off the Channel Islands near California.</p>

<p>&quot;This unidentified purple orb stumped our scientists onboard,&rdquo; according to <a href="http://www.nautiluslive.org/" target="_blank">the Nautilus
website</a>. &ldquo;After sampling, it began to unfold to reveal two distinct lobes. This could possibly be a new species of nudibranch.&quot;</p>

<p>Nudibranchs, sometimes called sea slugs, can be quite colorful. Some look like slugs, while others look almost spiny.</p>

<p>The &ldquo;purple blob,&rdquo; as the scientists on the research vessel Nautilus called it, remains a mystery, but the researchers captured the sample and plan on
analyzing it further.</p>

<p>Other theories of what it might be include an egg sac or some kind of embryo, but the Nautilus website says it could be a while before we know.</p>

<p>&quot;It could take several years for scientists to determine if this organism is a new species,&rdquo; according to the website.</p>
