Space Agency NASA has published photos depicting the storm on the biggest planet in the Solar system Jupiter. Picture posted on Twitter account of the Agency.
The photo was taken by the spacecraft Juno, which was set to the gas giant, in 2011. The image depicts the atmospheric cyclone developing in intricate patterns.
Juno previously transmitted to Earth data on the processes that occur in the depths of Jupiter at the depth of three thousand miles. In particular, the strong vortices, as recorded in its atmosphere, as it turned out, penetrate the interior of the planet and cause changes in the gravitational field. The researchers found that it is asymmetric in the direction from North to South. In this case, the gas core of Jupiter rotates, according to the information about gravity as a rigid body.
Juno (“Juno”) is on the orbit of Jupiter came out in 2016-m to year. The unit will operate until mid-2018, then it will descend into the planet’s atmosphere where it will burn.
