The second largest planet in the solar system, Jupiter, has had a huge impact of “-the creation of the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years ago, according to a new study.

The study, published in Nature, suggests that the impact is likely to be behind the mysterious force of gravity measurements by NASA’s Juno spacecraft, which observes that Jupiter’s core is less dense and more extended than I expected.

“It’s a mystery,” said Rice, an astronomer and study co-author Andrea Isella, in a statement. “It suggests that something has happened, and that stirred the heart, and that’s where the huge impact on the game.”

Isella, along with a number of other researchers, ran computer simulations, in an attempt to explain the enigma of the core, and believe, that planet is Jupiter, which many people believe was formed when a rocky or icy planet, and it was huge, about 10 times the size of Earth. The so-called “planetary embryos” that Jupiter could have swallowed that would have happened in the first few million years of Jupiter’s formation.

“It’s the only scenario resulting in a core density profile, which is similar to what I action today, in a head-on collision with a planetary embryo is about 10 times more massive than the Earth, Shang-Fei Liu, the study’s lead author, be added to the list.

The team put together a video to show what violent effects it may have looked like.

It could take “many, many, many, many billions of years, it is a heavy material to settle back down into a dense core, under the conditions proposed in the paper,” Isella, added.

“It seemed to me to be very unlikely,” Isella called for it, adding that it was “like a one-in-a-trillion chance. But, Shang-Fei [Liu] has convinced me, by the shear calculation is that it’s not so far-fetched.”

Shear refers to the strength and well being.

NASA’s Juno probe has been in orbit around the galactic giant are, since 2016 is going to be about the planet’s polar regions for the 53 days.
