Click here for today’s feature:

On June 3rd, an object slammed into the planet Jupiter. About one year ago, a similar event occurred.   Here is a feature I produced last year which describes the previous impact but also the role that this large planet plays in our solar system in protecting our own planet.

My guest is Dr. Donald DeYoung, Astronomer and Chair of the Physical Science Department at Grace College in Winona Lake, IN.
