      Request PDF | Collision of comet Shoemaker - Levy 9 with Jupiter: What did we see | In July , a dramatic event took place—the collision of the Shoemaker–Levy 9 comet with Jupiter. This. place: comet Shoemaker –Levy 9 will collide with Jupiter. The entry of the comet into the atmosphere of Jupiter will be accompanied by a rapid energy release and an explosion will take place. The energy released during the explosion, of the order of Mt, will exceed by some thousandfold the total nuclear potential accumulated by mankind. SomeFile Size: KB.
