Revealing the depths of Jupiter: what have we learned from NASA's Juno mission

Speaker:Prof. Yohai Kaspi

Organizer:Yoav Sagi
Time:14:30 - 15:30
Location:Lidow Rosen Auditorium (323)
NASA's Juno mission has been orbiting Jupiter since 2016 equipped with instruments aimed to study Jupiter's deep atmosphere, interior and magnetosphere. In this talk we will discuss the Juno mission and its main discoveries to date. Particularly, we will focus on new results using microwave, infrared and gravity measurements revealing the deep dynamics, the structure of the Jovian atmosphere and constraints on its core mass. The sensitivity of the gravity measurements enabled measuring not only the depth and vertical profile of its jet-streams but the mass anomaly of the Great Red Spot putting constraints on its structure as well.
