PASADINA, California: For the first time in human history, scientists have signaled the discovery of water vapor on Jupiter’s beautiful moon Jenny Mead.
Water vapor is formed when icy particles from the surface of the moon turn from solid to gas. This research has been made possible by the Hubble Space Telescope, from which the extraordinary data obtained are still being studied by scientists. Details are published in the weekly scientific journal Nature Astronomy.
Jenny Med is not only the planet Jupiter but also the largest moon in the solar system. Earlier it was said that it has more water than all the oceans of the earth. But the temperature is so cold that the water has frozen. But the Sea of Jenny Mead is about 100 miles deep at the bottom of the Jenny Mead crust.
For the past twenty years, astronomers have been searching for water vapor on Jenny Mead, following Hubble’s research. In 1998, the Hubble Space Telescope took the first images of Jenny Mead thanks to photographic spectrum. Two of these images became very popular, showing the colored stripe-like structure of electrically charged gas, while another shows that the moon also has a weak magnetic field.
Although some images show the oxygen molecule O2 there, some images also show a single atomic oxygen. Further research was done to compare observations of NASA’s Juno mission in 2018 with images of Hubble. This work was done by scientists from the TH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. It also read Hubble’s data from 1998 to 2010, which included most of the images.
It was discovered that the temperature of Jenny Mead fluctuates and during the day the equator is so hot that some of the frozen ice melts and evaporates. Then it was further confirmed. Thus molecular oxygen was confirmed and it was also found that changes in temperature were causing water vapor.
In 2022, a state-of-the-art spacecraft will be launched for the same purpose. The European Space Agency’s spacecraft, known as ‘Juice’, will reach Jupiter and its moons in 2029. It is hoped that a detailed observation will confirm our initial results.
