Jupiter

The Jupiter Factory is an abandoned factory located in the outskirts of Pripyat in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Officially a manufacturer of cassette recorders and components for home appliances, the factory secretly produced semiconductor components for the military, and had test workshops for robotic systems.

Hubble helps uncover mystery of Betelgeuse's dimming

New observations by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope suggest that the unexpected dimming of the supergiant star Betelgeuse was most likely caused by an immense amount of hot material ejected into space, forming a dust cloud that blocked starlight coming from Betelgeuse's surface.

Astronomers find Jupiter-like cloud bands on closest brown dwarf

A team of astronomers has discovered that the closest known brown dwarf, Luhman 16A, shows signs of cloud bands similar to those seen on Jupiter and Saturn."Like Earth and Venus, these objects are twins with very different weather," said Julien Girard of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, a member of the discovery team.By measuring the preferred polarisation of light from a distant system, astronomers can deduce the presence of clouds without directly resolving either brown dwarf's cloud structure.Although measuring a polarisation signal from exoplanets will be more challenging, due to their relative faintness and proximity to their star, the information gained from brown dwarfs can potentially inform those future studies.NASA's upcoming James Webb Space Telescope would be able to study systems like Luhman 16 to look for signs of brightness variations in infrared light that are indicative of cloud features.NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) will be equipped with a coronagraph instrument that can conduct polarimetry and may be able to detect giant exoplanets in reflected light and eventual signs of clouds in their atmospheres.
