Researchers have discovered in the mysterious, the unexpected, changing the currents to go through Jupiter’s atmosphere, similar to what is seen on the Ground.

Published in Nature, Astronomy, the researchers used data from NASA’s Juno probe, which will all have a job to get to the celestial giant, since 2016, and found that the electrical currents through the magnetosphere of Jupiter does not act in the way they are supposed to.

The jet stream, which produce the auroras on Jupiter, just as it is on Earth, they will be less and less direct power than would be expected of them.

“These observations, in conjunction with any other Juno spacecraft measurements show that the alternating currents play a much larger role in the generation of Jupiter’s aurora as the direct-current system, and one of the study co-authors, Joachim Saur, said in a statement.

As for the Earth, the auroras on Jupiter are oval-shaped areas in the vicinity of the poles, and being driven by “a huge system of electric currents that connects to the light region of the magnetosphere of Jupiter,” the statement added. However, the Earth flow can be controlled by means of direct currents, while Jupiter’s is not.

“Jupiter electric power systems are driven by the enormous centrifugal forces in Jupiter’s rapidly rotating magnetosphere,” Saur added. “Because of Jupiter’s rapid rotation, one day on Jupiter lasts only two and a half hours of it — the centrifugal forces to move the ionized gas in Jupiter’s magnetic field, that is, the generation of electric currents.”

I have passed both of Jupiter’s polar regions in order to 53 days, according to the study’s abstract, and it was found that the direct current was about 50 million amps, not quite as high as the theoretical models would suggest, according to Live Science.
