Jupiter, Jupiter, Jupiter

The fusion on the surface of Jupiter streaming to the Great Red Spot

Juno measures 0.25% of Jupiter’s atmosphere is water, so where does all the water in each terrestrial planet come from? Based upon the nominal composition of methane gas hydrate. (CH4)4(H2O)23, Jupiter is more than 90% water by mass, what’s up? Since MGH is a clathrate, it encloses all foreign bodies, atoms, molecules in cages of twelve or more water molecules. By this mechanism the normal abundance of the known element abundances which comprise the earth and the other planets are contained, much of the heavy elements in the simple form of the dust which makes the planetary nebula dark.

As discussed in the previous post, the MGH formed in a dark dusty planetary nebula where the temperature was less than 20 K. In these regions the giant planets began to form even before the star (our Sun) lit up. In the cold outskirts of the system the deuterium fractionation D/H was very high, maybe 0.3. When a body impacts the surface of Jupiter, it triggers a fusion explosion, D + H -> 3He++ + 4.98 MeV which blasts the ingredients for a new terrestrial planet into the inner solar system, as in the case of proto-Venus 6,000 years ago.

That explosive impact left behind an ongoing fusion reaction at the impact site, named Juno in ancient texts, extending two million km from the blazing Jupiter which was watched by more than one hundred generations of humans moving back and forth every eight hours as the planet rotated. That reaction formed all of the asteroids present today in the solar system, and today produces the Great Red Spot. But that is not all. The 3He++ charged fusion products circle the planet prograde (currently imagined to be a dangerous inner radiation belt) and produce the powerful magnetic field and temperature excess of Jupiter. So what about the water??

The heat from the fusion creating the GRS, also releases the normal abundances of the elements. But while in the hot zone all of these elements react with one another and with the water being released and form high temperature compounds, primarily hydrates, thereby hiding the water being released, and other compounds, my favorite example is CS which produces tiny red crystals which color the GRS. As these compounds rise in the GRS vortex, they cool, crystallize and form particulate matter. These exit through the GRS and form the colored clouds, which produce no spectra ( currently imagined to be ammonia ice) and hide their elemental makeup. Moreover they settle to the MGH surface in the middle latitudes as fast as they are released and form dunes which slowly shift and confuse the gravity interpretation team, who imagine they are circulations in the conductive hydrogen interior, for which no equation of state has ever been found, who are still convinced that Jupiter is a gas giant.
