"Stunning" and enough to generate <b><i>NINE</i></b> articles in Science??!! <img src="/images/icons/shocked.gif" /><br /><br />http://www.spaceref.com/news/viewpr.html?pid=23718<br /><br /><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr /><p>NASA Scientist Available for Interviews About New Jupiter Findings<br /><br />PRESS RELEASE<br />Date Released: Thursday, October 4, 2007<br />Source: Ames Research Center<br /><br />MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. - A NASA scientist will be available to reporters Tuesday, Oct. 9, to discuss Jupiter findings to be published Friday, Oct. 12, in the journal Science.<br /><br /><b><font color="yellow">What NASA's Pluto-bound New Horizons spacecraft found when it flew by Jupiter on Feb. 28, 2007, stunned scientists who now are releasing more information in nine journal articles in Science.</font></b><br /><br />WHAT: Opportunity to conduct interviews about newly revealed Jupiter observations gathered by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft.<br /><br />WHEN: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. PDT Oct. 9, 2007.<br /><br />WHO: Jeff Moore, New Horizons Jupiter Encounter science team lead from NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.

Thanks you very much docm.<br /><br />Tuesday 9th October 2007, not long to wait. <br /><br />The encounter was an absolute stunner & now that information has been evaluated to a point<br />to generate <br />NINE papers in Science, goes to show what New Horizons achieved.<br /><br />As I said before in the New Horizons thread, the Jupiter encounter was a mission in itself.<br /><br />docm has just confirmed that statement.<br /><br />Hi alokmohan. Yes very true indeed. Because of Jupiter's enormous gravity well,<br />Jupiter is really a gate way to the far outer solar system, hence the relatively large <br />number of encounters.<br /><br />Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, Voyager 1, Voyager 2, Ulysses, Galileo, Cassini & New Horizons.<br /><br />Think I've got that right.<br /><br />Cannot wait to see the Io stuff. With the evaluations I have carried out myself, I have<br />already seen a few things, such as the North to South elongation of the Pele ejecta ring continuing,<br />Tvashtar plume was continuing to rise, Boosaule Mons was seen in profile, is now the tallest<br />named mountain in the solar system that is not on Mars, so called atmosphere is very <br />patchy, concentrating around the volcanoes.<br /><br />Lets see what the official release says <img src="/images/icons/laugh.gif" />.<br /><br />Andrew Brown. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080">"I suddenly noticed an anomaly to the left of Io, just off the rim of that world. It was extremely large with respect to the overall size of Io and crescent shaped. It seemed unbelievable that something that big had not been visible before".</font> <em><strong><font color="#000000">Linda Morabito </font></strong><font color="#800000">on discovering that the Jupiter moon Io was volcanically active. Friday 9th March 1979.</font></em></p><p><font size="1" color="#000080">http://www.launchphotography.com/</font><br /><br /><font size="1" color="#000080">http://anthmartian.googlepages.com/thisislandearth</font></p><p><font size="1" color="#000080">http://web.me.com/meridianijournal</font></p> </div>

Has anyone bothered to calculate how many of these spacecraft can continue to gain energy at the expense of Jupiter before it falls near Earth's orbit and casts us out of the solar system? Yeah, I know it is a lot, but have they ACTUALLY done the calculation? I bet not. Rise up and protest these hooligans who would endanger our lives, without knowing exactly how far they can go!! <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p> </p> </div>

IIRC, every flyby slows Jupiter like a trillionth of an inch in it's orbit.<br /><br />The planet dissolving chaos cloud is far mor lethal.<br /><br />So is the Photon Belt.<br /><br /><br /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#ff0000"><strong>TPTB went to Dallas and all I got was Plucked !!</strong></font></p><p><font color="#339966"><strong>So many people, so few recipes !!</strong></font></p><p><font color="#0000ff"><strong>Let's clean up this stinkhole !!</strong></font> </p> </div>
