Mining Jupiter for Hydrogen for Hydrogen Powered Cars


Recommended Posts

I had an idea if the mass of Jupiter is 1.89813 × 1027 kilograms and Jupiter is 90% Hydrogen, that leaves 434,700,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Kilograms of hydrogen on Jupiter. Why aren't we mining Jupiter for fuel?


"Jupiter is 90% hydrogen1, with 10% helium and a sprinkle of all the other elements. In the gas giant's outer layers, hydrogen is a gas just like on Earth. As you go deeper, intense atmospheric pressure gradually turns the gas into a dense fluid."
