See what the first 3D image of Jupiter's atmosphere looks like

The Juno probe entered orbit back in 2016, and all this time has been studying the atmosphere of Jupiter and other external

features of the planet.

In particular, scientists were attracted by the Big Redthe slick is a powerful permanent storm capable of engulfing the entire Earth. It was previously unknown whether it is confined to the upper atmosphere or or extends further inland.

Great red spot

New work confirms that cyclonesJupiter gets hotter in the upper atmosphere, where the density is lower, and the temperature is lower, in areas of higher density. Anticyclones that rotate in the opposite direction are colder at the top, but warmer at the bottom.

It also turned out that these storms are much higher,than scientists expected - some may be hundreds of kilometers long, while others, such as the Great Red Spot, extend over 350 km.

Astronomers noted that this discovery wasunexpected, since it turned out that the vortices are not only in areas where water condenses and clouds form, but also below the depth where sunlight can heat the atmosphere.
