James Webb: Space telescope reveals ‘incredible’ Jupiter views

Science
NASA/ESA/CSA/Jupiter ERS Team/Judy SchmidtThe world's largest and most powerful space telescope has revealed unprecedented views of Jupiter. The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) took the pictures of the Solar System's biggest planet in July. The images show auroras, giant storms, moons and rings surrounding Jupiter in detail that astronomers have described as "incredible".The infrared images were artificially coloured to make the features stand out.This is because infrared light is invisible to the human eye."We've never seen Jupiter like this.

Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Flying foxes, or fruit bats, are the largest bats in the world, but new research in Australia suggests they aren't slowed by their size. According to a study published Friday in the journal BMC Biology, the extraordinary mobility of flying foxes makes management and conservation efforts especially difficult. Advertisement Fruit bats move constantly among a constellation of roosts. Ecologists claim this movement helps flying foxes disperse seeds and pollen throughout Australia's fragmented forest ecosystems.

To better understand the challenges presented by the mobility of flying foxes, researchers used satellite tracking technology to monitor the movements of severa...
