The formation of Jupiter

Jupiter, a planet with a diameter of 143,000 kilometers, is the largest planet in the solar system and has a mass of about 300 masses of our planet. The mechanism of the formation of planets like Jupiter continues to be one of the most heatedly debated scientific issues for several decades. The new study of astrophysics from the Swiss National Center for Competence in Scientific Research (NCCR) joined forces with colleagues from other scientific organizations to explain a number of issues related to the mechanism of formation of Jupiter.

The so-called “delay in growth” of Jupiter, which consists in the fact that the young planet is in the mass range from 15 to 50 Earth masses much longer than previously thought, Albert and his co-authors explained by collisions with large planetesimals, which gave enough energy for heating up the atmosphere of Jupiter and preventing its rapid cooling, compression and further accretion of gas.
