Hot Topic Solar System Jupiter
How Mighty Jupiter Could Have Changed Earth's Habitability
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: Is Jupiter a friendly planet, Earth's enemy, or perhaps both?

Jupiter's Red Spot and Planetary Formation
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: A new study explains why Jupiter's Giant Red Spot exists today, even though fluid dynamics suggest that it should have faded centuries ago.

Modeling the Origins of Jupiter and Saturn
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: A new theoretical model is providing clues to how the gas giant planets in our solar system -- Jupiter and Saturn -- might have formed and evolved.

A Fresh Impact on Jupiter
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: An amateur astronomer reported the visual detection of a fireball on Jupiter at 11:35 UT on September 10 2012.

Jupiter's Jet Stream
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: New movies of an invisible wave shaking up the jet stream of Jupiter are helping astrobiologists better-understand similar processes on planet Earth.

Villain in disguise: Jupiter’s role in impacts on Earth
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: Jupiter is often credited for shielding Earth from catastrophic asteroid and comet impacts. But new simulations of the influence of gas giant planets in solar systems casts doubt on Jupiter's reputation as Earth's protector.

Clues to Jupiter's Formation in a Comet Grain
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: Comet samples from NASA's Stardust spacecraft are helping scientists understand the formation of Jupiter. Understanding the history of the early Solar System is important in determining how Earth became habitable for life as we know it.

Watching Fireballs Bombard Jupiter
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: This summer, amateur astronomers worked with professionals to spot two fireballs lighting up Jupiter's atmosphere. It was the first time Earth-based telescopes captured relatively small objects burning up in the atmosphere of a giant planet.

Building an Armored Tank for Jupiter
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: NASA's Juno spacecraft is in a cleanroom in Denver, where engineers recently added a unique protective shield around its sensitive electronics. Juno's launch window opens in August of 2011, when the craft will begin its mission to study the Jupiter system.

Craters Count Jupiter's Age
Topic: Jupiter
Summary: Craters on the two largest objects in the asteroid belt could help identify at what point during the early solar system Jupiter was created. Vesta and Ceres are believed to be two of the oldest objects in the solar system and studying them could shed light on how our solar system has formed over time.
