SUMMARY: A new image taken by the Chandra X-Ray Telescope shows puzzling, pulsating hotspots at Jupiter's north and south poles. So far, scientists have no explanation for what could be causing these X-rays; although, they do coincide with other phenomena seen on the planet, including auroras; like those at the Earth's poles.
