All Eyepieces on Jupiter After a Big Impact

Astronomers were scrambling to get big telescopes turned to Jupiter on Tuesday to observe the remains of what looks like the biggest smashup in the solar system since fragments of the Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 crashed into the planet in July 1994.

Re: All Eyepieces on Jupiter After a Big Impact

I wouldn't worry about it. Jupiter has the gravity to pull in all kinds of junk that passes through our solar system. I'll go out on a limb and say that is why it has so many quasi-moons. They need to worry less about Jupiter and more about the toilet on the International Space Station.

What's the deal with Helium 3? A lot of people have been talking about it being the new plutonium? I hear the ChiComs and Russians want to mine the moon for it?
