NASA: Mysterious sounds from Jupiter’s massive moon

talking about booty, the largest moon of Jupiter and at the same time The largest moon in the solar systemIt is larger in diameter than Mercury. Astronomers believe that life can thrive on this planet because there is not only an ocean of liquid water, but also an ocean of liquid water. Water vapor rises in space. Scientists also believe that there is more water than there is on Earth.

There are a lot of discoveries about this object. Recently, we found out from observations that were made with Hubble Space TelescopeThat around Ganymede there is a thin atmosphere consisting almost entirely of oxygen. There is also a magnetic field and magnetosphere. Needless to say, they win there Almost ideal conditions for life to flourish. But we still have to confirm that.

The US and European Space Agency are preparing for space probe missions Icy Moons of Jupiter and Saturn. It is very likely that this is where the water heaters may be located hydrothermal chimneysAnd with them, simple life forms flourish, as happened on Earth billions of years ago. So the twenties and thirties of the twenty-first century would be excellent in terms of searching for life in our solar system.

Meanwhile, NASA has published on the World Wide Web a very interesting audio material recorded by the Juno probe, which has been conducting extensive research on the largest planet in our system for several years. Recorded in June with Juno Waves Instrument. It picks up radio waves generated by the moon’s magnetosphere. On its basis, sounds were created that can be heard near Ganymede. looks vague.

Researchers ask Increasing the intensity of the sounds, roughly in the middle of the posted video. They are likely to be anomalies in the magnetic field of the object that were recorded during the probe’s transmission. More research is needed to confirm this.

Scientists also prepared the probe using the Juno Waves instrument and as many as 32 nearby passages Map of Jupiter’s magnetic field. Interestingly, it turns out that big blue spot, or a magnetic anomaly near the planet’s equator, not only increased in intensity over the course of 5 years, but we also discovered that it was moving eastward at a speed of about 4 centimeters per second. It should take the planet about 350 years to complete its orbit.
