Impact on Jupiter March 17 2016
On March 17, 2016 A talented Austrian amateur astronomer, Gerrit Kernbauer, not only observed an impact explosion but captured a video and posted it on YouTube. One commentator asked the intelligent question – If Jupiter is a gas planet, how can we see an impact rebounding?
There are a number of problems in relating this impact sighting compared with the observations of the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet impacts. (a) the image is in the visible range, an infrared image would have revealed a larger signal; (b) it is too brief to capture the entire ‘light curve’, especially the more intense ‘main event’ of which in the S-L 9 impacts occurred 6 to 15 minutes after the initial flash and lasted some ten minutes. Apparently the image captured was the what was described as the ‘first precursor’ in the S-L 9 light curves, which was very faint and brief (1 or 2 seconds). This was due to the heating and ejection of the atmosphere above the cloud surface due to the initial entry. (c) Based on the position of the new impact on the limb of Jupiter with its rapid rotation (~42,000 km/second), the impact point rotated out of view before the much brighter second precursor would have become visible. This occurred 1 minute after the first precursor in the S-L 9 light curves and lasted about a minute. The ‘main events’ associated with the larger S-L 9 fragments (G & L) impacts saturated most infrared detectors and lasted from 6 to 15 minutes. If the March 17 impact body was sufficiently massive to penetrate Jupiters atmosphere and strike the surface it would have triggered a nuclear explosion as did the larger S-L 9 fragments. Due to Jupiter’s rotation the impact site would have been out of sight for about 5 hours and was probably not even sought by infrared cameras until days later.
Giant Planets Covered with Thick Clouds
The reason an actual impact is visible is that Jupiter is not gaseous (H and He) as the astronomers ‘preach’. As I have been writing for almost twenty years, the giant planets are solid, frozen, methane gas hydrate. (MGH), a form of water ice that forms in the presence of abundant methane. Jupiter and Saturn are covered with thick cloud layers due primarily to past impacts. As explained in a previous post, Saturn has received many impacts of material blasted from a nuclear furnace still blazing on Jupiter’s surface beneath its visible cloud layer and therefore Saturn has a much thicker layer of clouds and an apparently lower average density.
Explosions Waiting to Happen
MGH comprises microscopic ‘cells’ of 12 or more water molecules inside of which are foreign molecules or atoms (elements). In fact, the larger cells in Jupiter’s MGH encapsulate all the heavy elements present at the inception of the (original) solar system, except for those comprising the extant terrestrial planets. More importantly, the giant planets comprised the original solar system – i.e. there were no terrestrial (rocky) planets. The giants formed from a large dark cloud that was rich in deuterium (heavy hydrogen), then because of the frigid temperature in which they accreted as snowflakes, then snowballs, fractionation of deuterium (an increase in the proportion of heavy hydrogen with an extra neutron in the nucleus), was further enhanced. For example, an enhancement of the order of 10^10 NH3 has been observed in Large Dark Interstellar Clouds. This means that the surface of these planets are nuclear fusion explosions just waiting to happen, like dynamite but much more powerful.
When a body impacts their surface, it instantaneously heats the surface at the impact point above 100 million K at the same time compresses the surface material. This triggers a fusion explosion at the impact site and a mushroom cloud rises and expands til it become visible, roiling above the cloud-tops. This happened when the larger fragments of Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacted Jupiter, resulting the delayed ‘main events’, which astronomers never explained successfully due to the stubborn insistence that Jupiter is gaseous.
Explosive Jupiter Impacts are Origin of Terrestrial Planets
Jupiter is more than out protector. It is the origin of all the terrestrial planets. Ancient myth tell us that 6,000 years ago a giant impact explosion on Jupiter gave birth to the planet Venus. Given the ages of the oldest native rocks on Mars (from meteorites) and the Earth, similar impacts resulted in the birth of Mars 4.6 and Earth 3.9 billion years ago. Since Jupiter is primarily water, there is no doubt that the early Earth and Mars had plenty of water, as will Venus, once it cools off.
Invisible Water in Space
Venus’ water was blasted into the inner solar system 6,000 years ago, in fact, some of it is falling to Earth every day. in the form of hundreds of small tenuous ‘comets’ per hour photographed at certain times of the day by the UV camera of the NASA Polar satellite. The linked article discusses the ‘debate’ (denial) of evolutionist planetary scientists, who believe that the solar system has been in its current configuration for billions of years. They argue that the amount of water detected in the comets assuming they are solid bodies of ice could not have been falling to the Earth all of this time. Of couse it has not. It has just been falling for 6,000 years.
Worse yet, the two scientists who have detected these ‘small comets’ have been demonized and ostrasized by the ‘community’, similar to the way in which Immanuel Velikovsky was treated after publishing his controversial ‘Worlds in Collision’. The invisiblility of this terrestrial planet amount of water is consistent with a previous epistle on the cosmological consequences of water in the univarse.
Seeing the Truth Requires more than Powerful Telescopes
We are approaching the revolutionary point when the truth about the solar system and the Earth itself will become understood. God willling.
