Study: Glad Jupiter didn’t get bigger

Jupiter is the king of the solar system, according tomedia. It is by far the largest and largest planet in the galaxy, and its atmospheric vortex storms make it instantly recognizable. It’s so big, in fact, that it’s not crazy when it comes to the idea that the solar system or it can vibrate in some way to make Jupiter big enough to become a star.

Study: Glad Jupiter didn't get bigger

The researchers present an interesting thought experiment using our knowledge of Jupiter and scientists’ understanding of star formation, published in Universal Today. In short, we should be glad that Jupiter has not grown larger.

Stars become stars because of their mass. The star system is formed by gas and dust. Gravity played its magic, and eventually matter began to gather. The larger the central object, the greater its gravitational pull and exponential growth, and when there is enough material nearby, a star can be born.

When an object gathers enough mass, its internal pressure becomes so great that it can react to nuclear fusion. It detonates and then turns into a specific star depending on the mass of the object.

As for Jupiter’s “almost” being a star, it’s hard to say, but given its mass is hundreds of times that of Earth, we don’t know how much material floats around our system during the formation of our system. But it is clear that there is enough material to build another sun.

The Kuiper Belt is a large area of matter that surrounds our solar system and is thought to be only a fraction of the mass of the past. When a planet as big as Jupiter devours matter at an exponential rate, we have reason to believe that it is likely to continue to devour until it grows to the size of a star.
