Investigators, studying data from NASA's second High Energy Astronomy Observatory, have confirmed the emission of X rays from Jupiter. The giant planet thus joins earth as the only planets known to produce X rays. The X ray emission was confirmed by a team led by Albert Metzger of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The group's findings were reported by Metzger last week at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society, at the University of Maryland, College Park.
