Astro Bob's Backyard Almanac: The Commonalities of the Cosmos
Today's takeaway; we're more alike than we are different.
The James Webb Space Telescope continues to widen our knowledge of the universe. Recent images of Jupiter highlight some similarities that the giant planet shares with earth.
Though the thought of northern and southern lights might feel like a uniquely "earth" phenomenon, several planets in our solar system - including Jupiter - also experience the polar light show.
This is, of course, just one similarity. But if you ask Bob King, looking deeper into space continues to reveal commonalities more than it does differences. "The more you look, the more similarities you find across the entire universe," says King. "We are all related. We're all part of the same stuff."
