Jupiter Is the Oldest Planet in the Solar System, New Evidence Shows

Jupiter – the largest planet in our solar system – is also the oldest, according to scientists who have found that the gas giant was formed four million years after the solar formation.

Knowing the age of Jupiter is essential for understanding how the solar system became its current architecture. Although the models predict that Jupiter was formed relatively early, so far, its formation had not been closed.

“We did not get to test Jupiter (unlike other bodies like Earth, Mars, Moon and Asteroids),” said Thomas Kruijer, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in the US.

“In our study, we used the isotopic signatures of meteorites (derived from asteroids) to infer the age of Jupiter,” said Kruijer, lead author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Looking for isotopes of tungsten and molybdenum in iron meteorites, scientists have found that meteorites consist of two genetically distinct nebulous tanks that coexisted but remained separated between one million and three to four million years after the formation of the solar system.

“The most plausible mechanism for efficient separation is the formation of Jupiter, opening a space in the disk and preventing the exchange of materials between the two tanks,” said Kruijer.

“Jupiter is the oldest planet in the solar system, and its solid core formed well before the gas in the solar nebula dissipates, according to the base accumulation model for the formation of the giant planet” has, he said.

Jupiter is the most massive planet in the solar system and its presence has had a huge effect on the dynamics of solar disk acceleration.
Scientists have demonstrated, through isotopic analysis of meteorites, the solid nucleus of Jupiter was formed only about a million years after the beginning of the history of the solar system, making it the oldest planet.

Thanks to its rapid formation, Jupiter acts as an effective barrier against the inward transport of the material through the disk, which could explain why our solar system lacks super-Earths (an extrasolar planet with a mass greater than Earth ).

The team found that the Jupiter nucleus has increased about 20 times the Earth’s mass in a million years, followed by a more prolonged growth to 50 times the Earth’s mass until at least 3-4 million years after formation Solar system.

Early theories propose that gaseous giant planets such as Jupiter and Saturn imply high growth solid nuclei of about 10 to 20 times the Earth’s mass, followed by the accumulation of gas in these nuclei.

So the bottom line is that gas-generating nuclei must be formed before the dissipation of the solar nebula – the circum-gaseous disk surrounding the young sun – that probably occurred between 1 million years and 10 million years after Formation of the solar system.

“We are able to get away with Jupiter more accurately within a million years using isotope signatures of meteorites,” the researchers said.

Although this rapid acceleration of the cores was modeled, it was not possible to leave its formation.

“Our measurements show that the growth of Jupiter can be dated with time of genetic formation and meteorites separately,” said Kruijer.

Two-Headed Porpoise Found For First Time

Two-Headed Porpoise Found For First Time

The breeding male newborn porpoises were caught as bycatch and dumped into the North Sea by Dutch fishermen fearing it is illegal to keep them.

The first known case of a two-headed porpoise was documented last month when Dutch fishermen in the North Sea accidentally caught an abnormal creature as incidental catch in a raid nets.

Fearing that it is illegal to keep the marine mammal dead, they threw it into the ocean, but not before taking pictures of their strange research and alert researchers.

While the Siamese twin case studies have been studied in humans, reptiles and companion animals, they are rarely seen in wild mammals. In fact, prior to this finding, only nine cases of cetaceans in both directions of any type have been documented reliably.
A recent study published by the Journal of the Museum of Natural History in Rotterdam contextualizes the scarcity of discoveries.

“Binocular descriptions of whales and dolphins are extremely rare,” said Erwin Kompanje, the National Museum of History in Rotterdam, in his study. “We knew nine [other] published cases.”

Although researchers have lamented not being able to physically examine the dolphin they could gather data on the fisherman’s photos.

Scientists definitely know that the dolphin was both a newborn and a man.

The dorsal fins did not rise, the grandstands (or top of the head) still contain the hair and still contains an umbilical opening, indicating that the dolphin died shortly after birth. The story had not been rigid, necessary development porpoises have to swim.

On average, porpoises produce offspring every one or two years, and even if twins are extremely rare. Nearly 700,000 Marsopas are found worldwide, with 345,000 residents in the North Sea, but never before with two heads (until scientists can determine).

The International Union for Conservation of Nature says that bycatch is the biggest threat to porpoises. As a result, the EU has taken measures to control the impact of trawls and on populations.

It is believed that binoculars symmetrical ensemble, resulting in porpoises when two different embryos fuse or a zygote is only partially divided.

Kompanje noted in his study, however, a complete understanding of what causes twins together remains an enigma.

‘Someone Is Jumping’: After 12 Dead, London Fire Survivors Share The Nightmare

LONDON: Sajad Jamalvatan was at the cinema on Tuesday night when he called his mother in a panic. Returned soon declared himself.

“The building is on fire!” She said.

A few minutes later, the biomedical engineering student 22 years round the corner to see Grenfell Tower transforms into a hell.

“As soon as I arrived, someone pointed and said,” Someone jumps! Someone jumps! “He said Wednesday with the lingering smell of smoke in the air. In his opinion, the person jumped from the 16th or 17th floor of the 24-story tower.

This type of fall is not the type that can survive. The death toll has reached at least 12 – with dozens injured and authorities have warned that the death toll could rise.

Witnesses recalled a mother who abandoned her baby on a balcony and young children frantically knocking on windows before disappearing behind a thick layer of smoke.

“See the people dying in front of you …” he said as his voice stopped and stared at the sidewalk.

He said the shield had advanced rapidly and that the alarms were not activated.

“When I arrived, there were 10 apartments on the fire. After that, the whole building was on fire,” he said.

He snapped his fingers. “It’s like this,” he said.

Accounts such as his quickly added to suspicions that the equipment used in the 24-story building could contribute to rapid fire in an enclave of low-cost units in one of Britain’s richest areas.

The tower residents’ association had already warned that the tower was a potential fire hazard – they highlighted their concerns in a blog post last year – and there was palpable street rage that could have been done to prevent the tower fire.

Some complained that the fire alarms were not working properly. Others said that the staircase in the middle of the building was inadequate. Others have said that those who made the building did things on the cheap.

The London fire department calls the fire “unprecedented” and said an investigation was under way.

In a nearby community center, for their part, hundreds gathered in the hope of finding missing friends and relatives, including Muslim residents who had gathered for dinner during the holy month of Ramadan.

Interested people have also arrived in mass, many plastic bags that carry that collapse with food, diapers, toiletries and blankets. A man pushes a baby stroller with water, milk and baked beans cans.

Ahmed Chellat, 60, a retired community worker, was in a community center in search of his brother, wife and three children living on the 21st floor of the tower. He said he talked to his brother’s wife at 1:45 and told him to stay.
When he asked why they were not going to run out of the building, he said: “We are told to stay in – they ask us to cover the doors with towels. But the fire happens a lot.” , He recalled.

When he remembered 30 minutes later, “the last thing he said was”. The smoke was heavy. ”

“If emergency services tell them to stay indoors, it means they have not just come in. Are they big problems,” he said.

Many residents said that the building has been recently renovated and equipped with plastic panels, which have helped the fire spread quickly. “If you were a brick, you would not have set the fire on so fast,” Chellat said.

In such fires elsewhere, the flammable lining was blamed for several fires Highlands fast – including several plaques among the many skyscrapers of Dubai.

Just before the New Year celebration in the 2016 welcome, a fire swept through the 63-storey hotel in Dubai as millions watched the television coverage of the festivities near Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. A handful of people were injured in the fire.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Appears Before Panel Investigating Family Wealth

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Appears Before Panel Investigating Family Wealth

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif appeared before a committee to investigate his family’s wealth on Thursday, the first time a Pakistani prime minister was grilled by a research agency.

Sharif scrutiny rocked Pakistan, but the investigation – ordered by the Supreme Court – is increasingly politicized. Sharif arrived at the Joint Research Team (JIT) in Islamabad wearing traditional shalwar kameez robe and loose pants, but did not speak to the media.

It was not clear how lengthy the hearing, which was to begin at 11am (0600 GMT).

The prime minister and his sons deny the allegations.

The Supreme Court ruled in April that there was insufficient evidence to remove Sharif from the office of opposition corruption allegations, but ordered further investigations.

The Supreme Court agreed last year to investigate the Sharif family’s marine wealth after the opposition threatened to protest after the leak of “Panama Documents”.

Documents published by the law firm of Panama-based firm Mossack Fonseca appear to show that Sharif’s daughter and his two foreign owned son owned companies located in the British Virgin Islands used them to buy property in London.

Sharif, whose father was a prominent industrialist, said his family wealth was legally acquired.

The three-time prime minister, Sharif was expelled twice in the 1990s, even during a military coup in 1999. He later lived in exile, mainly in Saudi Arabia.

He returned to power in the 2013 elections.
His spokesman did not respond to requests for comments.

Pakistan has been plagued by corruption for decades, politicians who often accuse transplant rivals.

The Supreme Court has given the Committee two months to investigate the family and then give its conclusions.

The six-man group, comprised of members of civilian investigative agencies and military intelligence officers, examines three generations of Sharif family wealth.

The team accused Ministries of falsifying the old files, but Finance Minister Ishaq Dar rejected the allegations on Wednesday, adding that the claims meant the process was becoming “suspicious,” local media reported.

Sharif’s camp tried to withdraw two members of the investigation team and his party in Pakistan Muslim-Nawaz (PML-N) has expressed outrage over a fleeing photograph drawn from a sample of security cameras son of Sharif Hussain, That appears before the panel.

Opinion polls suggest Sharif’s party is likely to win the next election next year.

A senior PML-N told Reuters that the party could not call early elections if Sharif was expelled by a Supreme Court decision and would elect a new prime minister to assume until the general election.
