Juno Probe Is Orbiting Jupiter And Unlocking Deeply Held Secrets Of Gas Giant. Scientists at NASA use spacecraft's photos to build stunning new 3D animation of planet's North Pole. Picture Shows Bizarrely Symmetric Collection Of Storms That Choke Top Of Jupiter. Juno is preparing for its final orbit of giant world unless NASA extends its mission. Nasa's Juno probe continues to whip around Jupiter and beam back incredible new color photos of giant planet. But images that capture planet's stormy poles in InfraRed light, which is invisible to human eyes, help to crack mysteries of Jupiter's inner workings. Nasa released new 3D animation on Wednesday that was made using InfraRed photos of Jupiter's poles. Juno is documenting those mysterious regions of enormous planet for first time in history. Before Juno, we could only guess what Jupiter's poles would look like, Alberto Adriani, Juno team member at Rome's Institute for Space Astrophysics and Planetology, said in NASA - JPL press release about animation. Photo mosaic of multiple Juno photos show Jupiter's North polar storms. Nasa / SwRI / MSSS / ASI / INAF / JIRAM / Bjorn Jonsson visible - light images taken by probe's JunoCam show bizarrely symmetric pattern of anticyclonic or backward - spinning storms. However, InfraRed images recorded by tool called Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper, or JIRAM, help researchers peer dozens of miles deep into gas giant's poles. Newly released pictures reveal shape and structure of jam - packed collection of storms. Juno scientists debut animations during European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria.

Tour of Jupiter's north pole

New Storm Has Allowed Theorist Cheng Li To Test His Ideas On How Such Storms Are Able To Maintain Stable Configurations. Lis simulations play with parameters of so - called buffer zone that forms around cyclones, where gas flows in direction opposite to vortex. This buffer zone other cyclones, preventing them from merging. Buffer zones are also vital to maintaining symmetry around Pole. But with strong buffer zones, cyclones can maintain stable configuration: but zones themselves are stable over longterm, so this picture will change over time. Turbulence will eventually erode buffer zone, Li explains. Once they disappear, will merge. Li cautions that his is limited because its two - dimensional. Vertical winds, for example, may play role in shaping dynamics at Pole. Incorporating such 3D aspects into theoretical will require additional Juno observations that delve deeper into Jupiter's atmosphere. Juno will continue collecting data until its mission in 2021, unless its mission is extended further.
