[Images: All but perfect for album art, these are new photos of Jupiter’s South and North poles, respectively; see also this ridiculously beautiful landscape scroll of Jupiter unrolled into a ribbon. Meanwhile, one wonders if you could actually be alone there, flying through hydrogen storms, breathing helium, reading Ovid, self-exiled… In any case, does Jupiter sound like this?].

The MP3 that last link leads to is “Drumlin Field” by Yannick Dauby.
if they are polar views shouldn’t one half be in darkness??
They’re stitched together – I just didn’t mention that. But, yes, you’re right. What you’re seeing is the poles of Jupiter pieced together seamlessly from different photos taken by Cassini-Huygens. So there’s no darkness.
But good eye…!
Your reference to the image’s potential as an album cover made me think of the Thomas Koner picture disk here for Unerforschtes Gebiet. I don’t know the temperature of Jupiter, but if it’s icy at all, Koner’s your man.
I think of Jupiter as sounding more like Stars of the Lid.
11V – Beautiful design! And I do like Köner; in fact, he pops up in this post if it interests you: Soundtracks for architecture. Thanks again –
And jpb got any links? Would like to hear. Or I’ll iTunes store it…
This is no doubt the cross section of a giant gobstopper.
