Jupiter - unveiling the secrets of the big giant

Why is Jupiter key to understanding the history of the solar system? What is Jupiter made of? Why is it important to study the interior and atmosphere of Jupiter? How does the interior of Jupiter look like? How is it to work on a space mission?

Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system and the most influential one: Its interior and atmosphere hold the key to understanding the history of our solar system. During the years, many space missions have visited Jupiter providing great information to understand this planet, but many mysteries remain. In this talk, astrophysicist Yamila Miguel will tell you what we know about the big giant in our solar system and particularly the great discoveries we made using data from the NASA Juno mission, which has been orbiting the giant since 2016.

Yamila Miguel

Dr. Yamila Miguel is an astrophysicist working to understand our place in the Universe. She studies atmospheres, the interior, and the formation of planets in our solar system and exoplanets, worlds orbiting stars beyond our sun.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she was always curious and knew she was going to be a scientist. She got her PhD in 2011, studying the formation of planetary systems as a CONICET Graduate Fellow. From 2011 to 2014 she started studying chemistry in exoplanets’ atmospheres (rocky and giant planets) at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy.
At the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur Yamila studied the interior structure of giant planets, and during this period joined the (NASA) Juno mission science team. In 2018 she started as an assistant professor at Leiden Observatory and in 2020 she got involved in SRON, The Netherlands Institute for Space Research. She is the co-I of the Ariel mission of ESA, which is a space telescope that is going to study exoplanet atmospheres while orbiting the Earth. 

Eva Serena

On her debut single ‘Somebody Human’, Amsterdam-based artist Eva Serena opts for transparency, touching base with the most primal of feelings, thoughts, and dreams. "The song is about a search for humanity and vulnerability," Eva told media platform 3voor12, who premiered the song. "It looks at the masks we wear, the socially desirable roles we play to be accepted. We tend to hide our vulnerabilities, even though they are precisely what makes us human.” 'Somebody Human' is a slow unraveling, finding comfort and clarity in its warm, layered arrangements and lucid, beguiling vocals.
