Video Shows Incredible 3D Animation Of Jupiter

Video shows incredible 3D animation of Jupiter’s ‘frosted cake’ clouds

The researchers used JunoCam data to construct a digital elevation map of cloud tops. A team of scientists recently created stunning 3D renderings using NASA’s Juno spacecraft to simulate how Jupiter’s raging storms would emerge from space. A short video shared by Europlanet on YouTube revealed finely textured swirls and peaks that the researchers say …

Life-missing elements may be present in the oceans of Saturn’s moon Enceladus

New research suggests that the ocean inside Saturn’s moon Enceladus may be rich in phosphorus, an essential element for life as we know it. Phosphorus is an important part of the biochemistry of life. For example, it binds to sugars that provide the “backbone” for DNA that binds the four nucleobases to the double helix. …
