The aftermath of the impacts of periodic comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter was studied with the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 on the Hubble Space Telescope. The impact debris particles may owe their dark brown color to organic material rich in sulfur and nitrogen. The total volume of aerosol 1 day after the last impact is equal to the volume of a sphere of radius 0.5 kilometer. In the optically thick core regions, the particle mean radius is between 0.15 and 0.3 micrometer, and the aerosol is… CONTINUE READING
