According to foreign media BGR reports, Jupiter is the largest of the eight planets in the solar system, and there are a lot of satellites around it. In fact, the gas giant has nearly 80 moons. New research published in the geophysical research letters suggests that these satellites are responsible for their own warming, or at least they are responsible for each other’s warming. This may sound strange, but when it comes to the effects of gravity, it’s actually quite reasonable. The new study focuses on a phenomenon called tidal heating. In short, “tidal heating” refers to the process of tidal friction when the satellite passes through the orbit around the host planet. Europa Europa is thought to contain an underground ocean beneath its frozen crust. Without “tidal heating,” such a thing might not have been possible, depending on Jupiter’s distance from the sun. This will certainly affect water worlds like Europa, but it could have the same effect on rocky planets. < / P > < p > “keeping the underground ocean from freezing during geological times requires a delicate balance between internal heating and heat loss, but we have several evidence that Europa, Ganymede, Callisto and other satellites should be the ocean world,” Antony Trinh, co-author of the study, said in a statement. “Europa, the nearest moon to Jupiter, shows extensive volcanic activity, another consequence of tidal heating, but more intense, probably experienced by other planets such as earth in its early history. Ultimately, we want to understand the source of all this heat in order to understand its impact on the evolution and habitability of many worlds throughout the solar system and beyond. &Quot; < / P > < p > the researchers tested the theory by running the model. They found that Jupiter is not responsible for tidal forces alone, and that incorporating the satellite itself into the model is the only thing that can generate enough tidal force to cause warming. At present, Europa Europa is one of the main candidates to search for extraterrestrial life in the solar system. Scientists believe that there may be life thriving in the moon’s underground ocean, and future missions may prove that. Apple extends AppleCare + purchase period: users can decide within 60 days
