    Amateur astronomers may notice that something is missing on Jupiter – can you guess what might be missing? How could something go missing on a planet like Jupiter? Back on earth, a ten ounce chunk of meteor fell in Arizona recently and was found by a resident there. That ten ounce chunk has been around for a very long time and at the very least describes what the environment was like before the formation of the sun.
