Have you ever thought about the possibility of the universe being a giant creature?
It is always paying attention to the development of our earth, and we humans are just a microorganism inside this huge organism.
When Robert Hooke was observing Jupiter in 1664, he found that there was a big eye on Jupiter.
This eye has been staring at our earth, and it seems to be moving.
Once this discovery was announced, it immediately aroused heated discussions among astronomy enthusiasts, and also set off a wave of exploration of Jupiter.
However, due to the limitations of science and technology at that time, humans did not completely figure out what this huge eye was.
Why does it keep staring at our earth?
It was not until 1977 that humans launched Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 that they could see the true appearance of this eye.
Voyager 1 took a real photo of Jupiter at a distance of about 400,000 kilometers from Jupiter.
After analyzing the photos, scientists discovered that the huge eye on Jupiter is just a huge anticyclonic storm.
It is about 40,000 kilometers long and 14,000 kilometers wide, and its size is equivalent to two Earths.
In August 2011, NASA launched the Juno probe to take a close-up picture of this eye of Jupiter. Scientists have thoroughly figured out the internal structure of the eye of Jupiter this time.
And strangely found that this eye is slowly shrinking.
But what is the specific reason for the shrinkage, so far there is no definite answer.
But the only thing we can be sure of is that Jupiter has been protecting our earth, and it is because of its existence that our earth can thrive.
Why do you say that?
We mentioned in the previous topic that Jupiter had a major collision event in 1944.
At that time, a comet named Shoemaker No. 9 entered the inner solar system directly from the outer solar system, and flew straight towards our earth.
Because the place where it will arrive in the future is meeting the orbit of our earth, it poses a great threat to the earth.
What’s weird is that when comet Sumegelev 9 passed Jupiter, it was already torn by Jupiter’s strong gravity.
After being successfully captured by Jupiter, it crashed into Jupiter at an extremely fast speed, leaving four very large impact craters on Jupiter.
At that time, the power of the explosion was equivalent to the energy released by 40 trillion tons of TNT explosives.
Everyone can imagine that if such a powerful force hits the earth, it will definitely be no worse than the damage caused by the collision when the dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago.
At that time, it is very likely that life on our earth will become extinct again.
And the earth civilization will also disappear in the universe.
So it is precisely because of the existence of Jupiter that until now, we humans, including other life on the earth, can live safely on the earth.
So is it possible that this huge eye on Jupiter is the eye of a giant creature that has been watching the safety of our earth?
He observes the development of our planet and keeps our planet safe from the threat of alien objects.
