Driving home listening to NPR on the Kepler telescope discoveries of "earth-like planets," and one of the scientists interviewed was explaining the technological advances that allow them to find these distant planets. Then he said, "It used to be someone could discover one or two crappy Jupiter-like planets and get on the cover of Time magazine..."

Did I imagine that he said that??? "Crappy Jupiter-like planets"? With such disdain!

I don't know if he should be snubbing Jupiter, that's a pretty damn big planet.

...Plus Jupiter has a LOT of moons... Does this mean Jupiter got dented more than Earth when it was forming or something like that?

Any planet with gravity that can tear anything apart deserves some respect. Damn! Good, Jupiter. Nice, Jupiter

Don't forget its thin rings.

You know, if I recall correctly, physicists believe that planets like Jupiter are necessary for life to evolve. They kinda float around sucking up all the space debris that would otherwise crash into planets like Earth killing everyone. It's sort of like a celestial bodyguard.


Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.

Do not back up. Severe tire damage.

I don't think you understand the gravity of the situation - Jupiter is a damn bully!!

It's hilarious how they put Neptune sideways, as in looking around the back of jupiter.

Imagine living on a planet whose axis was pointed toward the sun. Bizarre.

Well, the current definition for a planet involves a mass threshold that does not involve fusion and revolve around a star, and it used to be really hard to find planets, so these HUUUUUUUUUUUGE fucking gas giants were exciting because finding a planet outside our solar system in 2004 meant using technology to infer their existence from wobbles in the gravity of a star and you'd get into an argument about whether it was REALLY a planet or just a binary system. Apparently we're now building ice cream shops on Jupiter so gas giants are all ghetto and little lumpy rocks are all the rage. Unless they're free floating masses, then they're just brown shit or something.

Michio Kaku was talking about 'hot Jupiters'. He said, "A hot Jupiter is an 800 pound gorilla. Where does it sit? Anywhere it wants."
