Eye Candy: Watch Jupiter Spin In Ultra High-Definition

October 14, 2015


This is a short NASA video starring Jupiter spinning in 4K ultra high-definition. Jupiter is such a beautiful, terrifying planet. Did you know Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system (it's great red spot is about the size of earth) and still only 1/1,000th the size of the sun? Science! I just watched this video on my new 4K TV for the full effect, and let me tell you -- it was awe inspiring. As a matter of fact, my roommate, who is currently high, is still staring at the television and I turned it off ten minutes ago. Hey -- Derek! "Huh?" The video is over. Also, your mom called. "What did she want?" My nuts! "Haha, very funny." I'm serious, she wants to take me to the movies tonight. If I play my cards right I could be your dad.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Marietta, who's convinced Jupiter's red spot is actually an alien spaceship orbiting the planet, and she is 100% correct.

    Aw. You're 200 years too early to see the Enterprise float past it.

    So you're saying it looks a little fake maybe if you cherrypick stupid things that aren't correct or relevant?

  • Ozolz .

    Yes, kind sir.

    OK, where was the factory in the spot? I couldn't see it at all...

    At 18 seconds there's a small white dot that moves with the planet seemingly out of place. Isn't a glint of light or reflection. Just seems... strange.

  • Bling Nye

    Jupiter does have moons... not strange at all.

    Wow, I guess the weed I had last was better than I thought. What else can I say? Lmao...

  • Billy Rocka

    Took some screen shots and it appears to be something above the surface - above the gas. Round in origin, has a silvery white appearance...

    Sounds like a zentradi warbase. I suggest immediate total militarization of our society and breeding of higher quality plants that might make protoculture.
