By Jupiter! It’s 1951 …

By Jupiter! It’s 1951 …

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and is a gas giant made mostly of hydrogen. It is about 484 million miles from the Sun and takes 12 years to make just one orbit. This amazing planet actually radiates more heat itself than it receives from the Sun.

On July 10, the Juno spacecraft flew just 5,600 miles above Jupiter’s most recognizable feature: the Great Red Spot. It’s a storm that’s raged for 350 years, and it’s so large it could swallow Earth whole.

Now, Jupiter has 69 known moons, four of which were discovered by Galileo in 1610. You haven’t heard me mention 1951 yet. Allow me to remedy this.

Ananke is a retrograde irregular moon of Jupiter. It was discovered by Seth Barnes Nicholson at Mount Wilson Observatory on 28 September 1951. Ananke did not receive its present name until 1975; before then, it was simply known as Jupiter XII. It is very small with a radius of just 8 miles. Our own Moon has a radius of 1079 miles. Ananke is 13 million miles away from Jupiter and takes 610 days to complete one orbit. The temperature on Ananke is minus 150 degrees centigrade.

OK. I have news. There is another Jupiter.

The Jowett Jupiter is a British sports car which was produced by Jowett Cars Ltd between 1950-1954.

A racing derivative of the Jupiter, the R1, was entered in the 1951 1500 cc sports car race at Watkins Glen, driven to first place by George Weaver.
