The new discovery on Jupiter

Breaking news! The big red dot on Jupiter, which is a storm, shows many other features. Scientists and researchers have discovered something that contradicts astronomers' findings. They discovered that the storm (the big red dot on Jupiter) extends into the atmosphere much more. Juno, a NASA space shuttle on a mission to explore and bring new data from Jupiter, this time brought important data. 

In 2017, Juno observed that the vortex extends up to 322 kilometers into the planet's atmosphere. Whereas, in 2019, in two missions he noticed that the vortex is between 200 and 500 kilometers deep. Which is far above what was measured in 2017. This year, the latest data show that the vortex extends to a depth of more than 500 km. and rarely less than 300 km. . These findings show that the vortex is expanding much faster than previously thought, and may exceed Jupiter's clouds from a very high altitude above the planet.

Until, the storm is below the level of the clouds, but in the future, it can pass this level. We remind you that this storm could swallow the Earth as big as it is or at least makes it dust on the outside. The researchers and scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel told The Verge. This storm is not something fixed on Jupiter, it is a storm that is moving, so it can be seen that the Great Red Spot is observed on other parts of the planet. Also, the storm is supported by two thick layers of gas that are on either side of it, which extend over 3000 km from the middle of the storm.

The discovery of that big red dot on Jupiter was more than 150 years ago and has been studied ever since. The latest measurements from Hubble, Juno, and other NASA ships show that the storm is shrinking its diameter more and more, and the outside winds are increasing their speed. Thus, the storm increases in height (lengthens). That is why it is believed that it will exceed the limit of Jupiter's clouds.

We wish success to NASA, Israeli researchers and scientists, Juno, Hubble so they can find out more about Jupiter and the Great Red Spot.
