Edit: I digged deeper and found that it was a coincidence that Jupiter was called the Wooden Planet. The Chinese assigned the name not because they were able to observe the wood like texture (due to the lack of telescope), but they were able to observe the existence of the planet with naked eye as early as 2300 years ago, along with the Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Saturn. These five planets were assigned to the name in the order of "金 gold (Venus)","木 wood (Jupiter)","水 water (Mercury)","火 fire (Mars)"."土 rock (Saturn)" superstitiously. What's really surprising is Venus does look like gold in color and Saturn does look like wood in color. What a coincidence!
Venus is indeed golden; Jupiter is red-brown like some type of wood; Saturn looks like it's covered in sand (土 can mean dirt as well as rock, and there's a lot of yellow dirt in China); Mars is unmistakably red; and Mercury looks plain white so why not assign it to the only remaining element. Four correct guesses out of five = probably not a coincidence.
And arguably stunted progression from them. But that's getting off topic.
Fun fact, Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is a huge storm that has been raging for at least 188 years if not much longer. It also has a diameter about 2-3 times as wide as Earth’s.
Jupiter also is believed to be a gravitational shield that protects us from asteroids and comets.
Jupiter is also Home to some of the coolest Moons in our solar system, my favorites being Io, Europa, Callisto, and Ganymede (the Galilean moons), in that order.
One question I’ve always had and hope to learn one day: what the heck is Jupiter’s “surface” like? I know it’s believe to be essentially layers of metallic hydrogen, but what the heck does that even mean? What would it look like? So interesting.
So I entered myself as 'Jacob Ganymede'; we've been friends ever since.
It's also shrinking at an increasing rate and may be gone within a couple decades.
There's probably not any light at the transition between the liquid and metal layers of hydrogen, the liquid layer is thousands of kilometers thick (the deepest ocean is ~11 km). And it's sort of hot. Not stove top pan hot, 10x hotter than that.
Oh and the pressure is a couple million times Earth surface pressure.
edit: Wikipedia defines photography as "the science, art, application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material [...]
It could fit
I would call this a 'composite image.'
It could take days to download something from the other side of the planet. And probably a month of airplane travel just to get there.
Better question might be what's the largest feasible (or likely) potentially habitable planet with earth-like gravity.
No, but what the point of resources if you don't know how to use them? For example - paper. China had it for more than a thousand of years before it reached Europe. Papermaking gave a great boost to our civilization, but imagine our world with papermaking just being introduced to the middle east.
Space travel would probably be more advanced by now.
Displaying written content on the web should be so simple, yet all the content producers have invented their own special blend of ways to fuck it up.
I manually edit the DOM and CSS of sites on an almost daily basis now just so I can read it.
Flash ads seem like toys now compared to this weapon of mass ux destruction.
Maybe because the main cyclone escaped the South pole and now known as Big Red Spot?
Jupiter almost has an octagon on it's north pole (and nearly a pentagonal version on it's south pole), similar to Saturn's northern polar hexagon!
