Jupiter is the Great Red Spot (GRS) has fascinated researchers for almost 200 years, have more and more been observed since the 1830’s. A new study suggests that the clouds are getting smaller and smaller, but not in the ways researchers would like to know.

The study, published in Nature Physics, suggests that the storm is still as thick as it was 40 years ago when NASA’s Voyager flew by in 1979.

“The Great Red Spot in particular, our predicted horizontal measurements agree well with the measurements at the cloud level, and since the Voyager mission in 1979,” the researchers wrote in the study. “We have a forecast of the Great Red Spot, the thickness of which is not accessible to direct observation. It remained surprisingly constant, despite the observed horizontal stretch.”

JUPITER IS THE GREAT RED SPOT WON’T DIE ANY TIME SOON, SAYS RESEARCHER

The researchers have made use of numerical simulations and experiments are carried out with salt-water in a Perspex tank of their own observations.

“We have to determine the power of the force, which is responsible for for the three-dimensional pancake-like shape,” the researchers added. “We have to define the scaling laws, for their horizontal and vertical aspect ratios as a function of the ambient temperature of the rotation, the stratification, and local wind speed.”

There has been some controversy in the scientific community on the question of whether Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is actually shrinking, with the latest reports suggesting that the clouds are getting smaller and smaller.

In the new study, which estimated that the GRS is around 105 miles thick, and waiting, NASA’s Juno’s observations, also how much the storm has been and will continue to learn more about the planet’s origins and history.

JUPITER HAS COLLIDED WITH THE FORMING OF THE PLANET IS 4.5 B YEARS AGO: “ONE IN A BILLION CHANCE

NASA’s Juno probe has been in orbit around the galactic giant are, since 2016 is going to be about the planet’s polar regions for the 53 days.

Jupiter continues to be a source of fascination for astronomers. In August, 2019 at the latest, a study suggesting that the potential for a huge clash with a “-the creation of the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years ago.

Two of Jupiter’s 79 known moons, Europa and Io, have been a source of intense interest for researchers in the field. In August 2019, NASA said that it would be to explore Europa, an icy object that could be habitable for humans and life, but as soon as 2023.

In November, 2019, an international research team discovered the water vapor above the surface of Jupiter’s moon, Europa, for the first time. It is unlikely that the oceans of Europa are made up, but the Hubble space telescope, discovered the presence of the sodium chloride, on the surface, according to a new study, published in the month of June.

A NASA MISSION TO EUROPA COULD BE POSSIBLY MEANING OF LIFE

The terms and conditions upon Europe earlier when compared with the extrasolar planet Barnard (B), a “super-Earth” is 30 trillion kilometers from Earth. Probably has a surface temperature of about 238 degrees below zero and the oceans under the icy surface, according to a July 2018, with a declaration of control.

NASA is launching a mission to Europa within the next decade, a journey that should be able to answer, or that the icy object could become inhabitable for humans and for life.
