Jupiter is in the class of planets that we call gas giants, not because they consist of gas but because they were primarily made from hydrogen-helium gas, which upon gravitational compression becomes a metallic fluid. Juno, in orbit about Jupiter since 2016, has changed our view: The gravity data are much improved, and the simplest interpretation of the higher order even harmonics implies that the planet may have a diluted central concentration of heavy elements. Jupiter has strong winds… 
Dynamical Tides in Jupiter as Revealed by Juno
The Juno orbiter has continued to collect data on Jupiter's gravity field with unprecedented precision since 2016, recently reporting a nonhydrostatic component in the tidal response of the planet.
The Gravitational Imprint of an Interior–Orbital Resonance in Jupiter–Io
At mid-mission perijove 17, NASA’s Juno mission has revealed a 7σ discrepancy between Jupiter’s observed high-degree tidal response and the theoretical equilibrium tidal response, namely, the Love
Investigating Barotropic Zonal Flow in Jupiter's Deep Atmosphere Using Juno Gravitational Data
The high‐precision Juno gravitational measurements allow us to infer the structure of Jupiter's deep atmospheric zonal flow. Since this inference is nonunique, it is important to explore the space of
Multiple zonal jets in a turbulent Jovian dynamo model
A diffuse core in Saturn revealed by ring seismology
The best constraints on the internal structures of giant planets have historically come from measurements of their gravity fields[1, 2, 31]. These gravity data are inherently mostly sensitive to a
Evidence of hydrogen-helium immiscibility at Jupiter-interior conditions.
Experimental immiscibility constraints for a near-protosolar mixture suggest that H-He phase separation affects a large fraction of the radius of Jupiter's interior, providing microphysical support for Jupiter models that invoke a layered interior to explain Juno and Galileo spacecraft observations.
A New Model of Jupiter's Magnetic Field at the Completion of Juno's Prime Mission
A spherical harmonic model of the magnetic field of Jupiter is obtained from vector magnetic field observations acquired by the Juno spacecraft during 32 of its first 33 polar orbits. These Prime

Our understanding of the surrounding world was significantly enriched by the Einstein’s proposal [1, 2], the theory of General Relativity (GR), which has been subsequently tested by many observations
PMODE I: Design and Development of an Observatory for Characterizing Giant Planet Atmospheres and Interiors
The giant planets of our Solar System are exotic laboratories, enshrouding keys which can be used to decipher planetary formation mysteries beneath their cloudy veils. Seismology provides a direct
Mixing of Condensable Constituents with H–He during the Formation and Evolution of Jupiter
Simulations of Jupiter's formation are presented that incorporate mixing of H–He with denser material entering the planet as solids. Heavy compounds and gas mix substantially when the planet becomes
