See Dramatic Cyclones Churning on Jupiter's Surface in These New NASA Photos

Clusters of cyclones churn over Jupiter Jupiter is covered in violent, powerful winds that last hundreds of years

The first study, led by Luciano Ies, a professor of aerospace at the Sapienza University in Rome, shows that the gravitational field of the giant gas varies greatly from the north to the south pole, which is unexpected for a fluid planet that rotates rapidly.

The fourth research, headed by Alberto Adriani of the Institute of Astrophysics and Planetology in Rome, found that 350 km of cyclones at the poles of Jupiter create long-lasting polygonal shapes.

Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument aboard Juno captured an infrared image of Jupiters North and South Polar Regions.

Kaspi said, "By contrast, Earth's atmosphere is less than one millionth of the total mass of Earth".

The depth to which the roots of Jupiter's famous zones and belts extend has been a mystery for decades.

Yohai Kaspi, Juno's co-investigator from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, said, "Galileo viewed the stripes on Jupiter more than 400 years ago".

The Juno spacecraft, which has been orbiting Jupiter since July of 2016, sent back photos that provide information about Jupiter that was previously unattainable. In the northern pole, eight cyclones perimeter around the pole revolve around another cyclone, while in the south pole five such cyclones move around a sixth.

Villanova vs. Providence - 3/10/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction
The Wildcats, as they have done all year, counteracted the momentum shifting against them with a barrage from three-point range. For the second straight day, Providence College needed to work overtime but came out smiling at the Big East Tournament.

Scott Bolton, principal investigator of Juno from Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio said, "These astonishing science results are yet another example of Jupiter's curve balls, and a testimony to the value of exploring the unknown from a new perspective with next-generation instruments".

Another of the studies in this week's Nature finds that Jupiter's crisscrossing east-west jet streams actually penetrate thousands of kilometres beneath the visible cloud tops.

We know that by now Juno has made around 10 passes over Jupiter, the 11 one going to happen on the 11of April.

These discoveries and others are detailed in a series of papers published this month in the journal Nature. In addition, the gravity signature of the jets is entangled with the gravity signal of Jupiter's core. Also, the Juno findings suggest that beneath the weather layer of the gas giant, the planet rotates almost as a rigid body.

Tristan Guillot, a Juno co-investigator from the France University, said, "This is really an unbelievable result, and future measurements by Juno will help us understand how the transition works between the weather layer and the rigid body below".

The co-investigator also added that the remarkable feature about the cyclones is that they are enduring and very close together. They reveal a blazing mix of reds, oranges, and yellows-cyclones swirling around each other to create an nearly artificial looking color collage near Jupiter's south pole. A feature such as it is something that is like nothing else that has been observed so far in the solar system. These new discoveries relate to its gravitational field, its chaotic atmosphere, the composition of its interior and its polar cyclones, and allow scientists to form a more complete picture of the larger planet of our solar system. Interestingly, even though the Cyclones are spaced tightly, they still remain distinct and have morphologies that are individual.
