QuanTaz – A Vaporous Super Jupiter

Our Space Odyssey continues with a visit to a Hydrogen -Helium Exoplanet that harbors habitable temperatures in the upper atmosphere.

Discovery Overview

QuanTaz is an exoplanet known as a Super Jupiter and is about 7 times larger than Jupiter.

QuanTaz emits about twice the energy it receives from the Star MiThoz, thereby generating internal heat to warm the native gas elements.

Planet Characteristics of QuanTaz

QuanTaz is a gaseous planet with no solid surface, but has a rock/iron core surrounded by three layers of mantle. QuanTaz exerts tremendous pressure within the interior, even greater than Jupiter’s because of its stronger gravity and higher density. The upper mantle is a mixture of hydrogen-helium elements (a process where gas and liquid merge). In the lower atmosphere, is the middle mantle consisting of metallic liquid. A solid metallic composition is in the lower mantle. Pressure becomes greater as one travels deeper into the planet which results in the hydrogen-helium mixture becoming more compact and metallic deep below the surface clouds.

If QuanTaz was a much larger planet, it would be able to produce its own energy through a process called deuterium fusion and become a brown dwarf star.

A Super-Jupiter is rated as an M-Class 1 planet, the closest planet to being a star.

Stormy Thermodynamics 

Because QuanTaz emits such intense heat from the interior, QuanTaz is known for cataclysmic atmospheric activities.  Fierce monumental storms and hurricane-force winds encircle the planet . The storms have become more intense and violent and powerful over millions of years as QuanTaz continues to emit more heat.

QuanTaz is home to a unique mysterious ghostlike life form that inhabits the upper atmosphere.
