This is the sound of Jupiter’s moon to the human ear

Is the darkness make you disapointed? It was the day after the longest night of the year for myself and others in the Northern Hemisphere – the winter solstice. The days will slowly (very slowly) lengthen from this point on. Back in Scotland, we just did everything you would normally do in bright sunlight, in the dark – practice sports under floodlight or go to work with fully lit headlights. Here, in New York, I really feel lucky there is daylight until 4 pm

And really, illuminating the very, the very small and the very big is the topic of today’s news. Me Claire Cameron, an editor at Inverse. The James Webb telescope has been delayed again. I won’t say I told you so, but it is very attractive. ‘Twill is a real Christmas miracle – or they could delay it again for today.

Nicknamed Baby Yingliang, the well-preserved dinosaur embryo sheds light on a unique trait shared by modern chickens. Write my diaryScience, Baby Yingliang has been revealed in all its glory as an almost complete tripod dinosaur fossil, still in its eggs.

Identified as Oviraptorsaur, a group of dinosaurs known for their feathers and hollow, toothless skulls that look surprisingly familiar.

Such excellently preserved dinosaur fossils are extremely rare, the researchers say. And by using 3D technology, they have unlocked its secrets to surprise you and me.

See fossils.

Juno has just picked up some odd frequencies at Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon, hinting at its underlying structure. This includes the possibility of water oceans.

When Juno Passes Jupiter’s Moon Ganymede, it tuned its radio and plasma equipment to the icy satellite. Shifting the pitch to audible frequencies, the result is listening account about the journey of the spacecraft and valuable data about the characteristics of the moon.

The spacecraft arrived within 645 miles of Ganymede in its flight path, passing at more than 41,000 miles per hour. As they did, the Juno team tuned the Waves instrument to radio waves and plasma waves generated by the magnetic interaction between Ganymede and Jupiter. By converting the resulting data into sound waves that can be heard by humans, the Juno team gave us the opportunity to hear the largest moon in the solar system, a kind of celestial music.

Venus may not be your first thought of a habitable planet, but in the latest addition to the ongoing debate, a team of scientists suggest the presence of ammonia in the clouds of Venus, it is possible to create habitable conditions. But as skepticism persists about Venus’s potential habitability, the latest findings are just one step in understanding the planet’s complex atmosphere.

Sara Seager, an astrophysicist and planetary scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the lead author of the new study, was also involved in a 2020 study that suggests habitable conditions for the first time. be in the clouds of Venus due to the purported presence of phosphate.

“It caused quite a bit of controversy, but it attracted a lot of new attention to Venus,” says Seager. Inverse.

After the initial discovery, some team members wanted to further investigate the possibility of habitable conditions in the Venusian clouds, independent of phosphine detection, according to Seager.

Here’s what they found.

Japanese space agency scientists have only just begun to analyze samples of an asteroid that returned to Earth in late 2020 – 5.4 grams to be specific. supplies from the near-Earth asteroid 162173 Ryugu. And in a pair of papers published today in Natural Astronomy, those scientists detail the first discoveries brought about by these precious grains.

The discoveries change our understanding of the appearance of Ryugu – the diamond-shaped space rock that is both darker and more porous than expected. This fragility is essential for assessing whether it or similar asteroids could one day threaten Earth.

The rock also contains volatile compounds, suggesting that Ryugu preserves material from outside the Solar System. This means that scientists now have in their labs some of the most primitive things from the very beginning of the Solar System – a time capsule from before our world began.
