Dangers of going to jupitar



  1. 0 Votes

    The first danger, which is more of an impossibility, is the distance to Jupiter: almost 400 million miles. NASA is still calculating the feasibility of traveling to Mars which is 54 million km at the point in its evolution when closest to Earth. Traveling to Jupiter would take well over a year, and the same amount of time to get back. NASA doesn’t have the fuel-efficiency technology to finish the trip. 

    Even if we did have the technology to travel to Jupiter we would have nothing to land on because its a gaseous planet; 90% hydrogen, 10% helium. Scientist believe the only solid part of the planet is the very center. 

    Lastly, Jupiter is so far from the Sun that its temperatures are too cold for personnel with even the most insulated gear. The average surface temperature of Jupiter is     -244 Fahrenheit.
