You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Wallpaper: Jupiter Portrait

Jupiter is a mini system within our solar system. Had it become considerably more massive during the formation of the solar system, it may have ignited and given us a binary star system. It is quite large in comparison to the other planets and its mass is 2.5 greater than the combined mass of all the other planets in our system. The best feature of all is Jupiter’s system of four large moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. These moons are in their own right, more fascinating than many planets happen to be. For example, one of its moons (Europa) has become what many scientists are calling our Solar System’s “most likely place to currently harbor life”, other than Earth.

    DUDE!! since Jupiter is more massively bigger then our planet i just want to imagine how long it would take to go around the whole planet!!
    It’s an awesome imagination when you think about it, not just that, it’s made up of helium and much more gases it’ll be funny when we hear ourselves talk to another.
    Thanks for the picture of Jupiter.

    Jupiter still terrifies me.
    The winds top out over 300kmph, which would toss a human body around while stripping the flesh apart. Seeing the manic roiling of the atmospheric bands, the rotation that’s too fast for its size, and knowing that it could swallow the whole world like a tictac. If it came for us, it would just grow and grow until it replaced the whole sky, before shredding the entire landscape like the shockwave from a nuclear blast. Just last year, I stayed up late a couple nights, trying to get these images out of my head.
