So, let's say this person has a durable space suit that allows him/her to breath his/her own air supply, as well as give him/her sufficient protection against the turbulant weather of the planets atmosphere. Let's also say this person in his/her suit has rockets or some sort of device to make a controlled desent.. If placed within the atmosphere and allowed to fall... Would the astronaut ever reach a solid surface? If so, would this be the core of the planet? If so would it be as hot or hotter than the core of our planet? Is the gaseous atmosphere similar to the aquatic atmosphere of our planet, in the sense that the pressure increases the greater the depth? If it does, would the pressure crush the suit at a certain point?... My over all question is... Would the astronaut ever be able reach a point on Jupiter, where he/she could stand on a solid surface, and be able to walk around and see what's what? Thanx for the help! Migs
