  1. Jupiter's powerful winds

    Date de publication:

    7 Mars 2018

    To understand the dynamics of Jupiter's winds means to unveil the composition and formation of the gaseous planets. Thanks to the measurements of the JUNO mission, the research teams produced key results, published on 7 March 2018 in Nature. Tristan Guillot, one of the main authors, and Yamila Miguel give us details about these discoveries.

  2. Juno unveils some of Jupiter's secrets

    Date de publication:

    3 Juillet 2017

    NASA’s Juno probe has been studying Jupiter’s structure and composition since July 2016. Its orbital trajectory brings it between the planet and its rings at an altitude of 5,000 km. During its mission, it will complete a total of 32 orbits before dropping into the planet’s atmosphere in 2021. Several papers have just been published about the first 2 flyovers. Tristan Guillot is an astrophysicist at the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur in Nice, France; he co-authored 3 of these papers and helps us understand the probe’s first results.
