Abstract

The discovery by the Galileo Probe Mass Spectrometer that argon is enriched to the same extent as carbon and sulfur on Jupiter requires a revision of models for the formation of this giant planet. Evidently the excess heavy elements were carried to Jupiter in icy planetesimals that formed at temperatures ≤ 30 K. This result indicates that there is no original significance in the present position of Jupiter's orbit.
