Just a wild guess, if the pressures outside of the center of the planet are high enough to cause the condensation of the gas without changing the temperature, I'd say it would be safe to bet that if you went much further in, there would be another gradient-like change from fluid to solid. I would also guess that this is what most of the scientific community believes because it's kind of obvious. If it weren't true, I'd be pretty surprised. Jupiter is fuckin' huge.

Well, it is indeed large xD

But isnt the image posted by bbarkz kinda wrong, as the core is a rocky ice core, rather than iron.

Anyway, regarding the pressure, i was bored and made this plot of the pressure. Note however that i assumed the density is homogenous which it clearly isnt , and used hydrostatic equilibrium = more stupid assumtions . Although this isnt completely correct, it should give a somewhat decent approximation i study astrophysics lol .

hey eat my shit fancy shmansy science cunt
#114 - siemen (11/25/2014) [-]
well mail me it then. ^^

It should be said that exactly what the core contains is unknown, although it seems like a rocky ice core is rather likely with some metals . Without having too much knowledge about this, how exactly the planets formed isnt completely known. After our sun formed, there was a lot of matter going around the sun in a thin disc the planets have ~the same inclination (conservation of angular momentum), and in the reason we have gas giants as far out as we have is cause of the distance at which stuff condensates and freezes.

But again, that is one way that it might have occured, but it doesnt work for many of the exo-planetary systems (gas giants close as hell for example xD), and other stuff.
So yeah, i dunno.

You're referencing the Galileo 2 which, to keep from contaminating any of Jupiter's moons, was crashed into the "surface" where it only made it 0.02% through its atmosphere before being totally destroyed. It should also be noted that we do not know the makeup of the rocky core of Jupiter, (The Iron theory would only be true if it were much more of failed brown star) it may be solid hydrogen or methane, either way it is 20 times more massive than Earth.
