Jupiter's North Pole Looks Totally Insane in These New Photos From NASA

Jupiter's North Pole Looks Totally Insane in These New Photos From NASA

Juno captured the images during a flyby of the planet in early 2017.

JIRAM can capture light being emitted by Jupiter regardless of the time of the day.

NASA showed a video of a flight over the North pole of the planet Jupiter in the infrared color spectrum.

"Before Juno, we could only guess what Jupiter's poles would look like", Juno co-investigator Alberto Adriani said in a statement. Scientists used the infrared imagery captured by Juno's Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM).

The newly released pictures reveal the shape and structure of the jam-packed collection of storms.

The 3D flyover video was unveiled on Wednesday during the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria.

NASA's video shows that there are colossal storms located at Jupiter's north pole.

Temperatures depicted in the video can range from 9 degrees Fahrenheit (-13 degrees Celsius) to -117 degrees Fahrenheit (-83 degrees Celsius).

Max Verstappen believes Red Bull still has work to do over one lap if it is to make the most of its strong race pace in China . Second practice gets underway at 7am BST. "But so far they are not operating on the same level as Ferrari or Mercedes ".

Since it entered Jupiter's orbit, the Juno spacecraft has completed 11 passes, travelling 200 million kilometres. Infrared cameras are used to sense the temperature of Jupiter's atmosphere and provide insight into how the powerful cyclones at Jupiter's poles work.

Juno's gravitational field measurements are also giving researchers a new understanding of the gas giant's inner workings.

"We have essentially solved the issue of how Jupiter's interior rotates", Tristan Guillot, another Juno team member at the University of Côte d'Azur in France, said in the release.

"Thanks to the incredible increase in accuracy brought by Juno's gravity data, we have essentially solved the issue", Tristan Guillot, of the Université Côte d'Azur in France, said. NASA says the team can propose to extend the mission past July 2018, so the Juno spacecraft might not be done just yet. NASA is likely to extend the mission by two or three years, pending a review.

NASA scientists have also revealed the first look at Jupiter's dynamo. NASA doesn't want to contaminate those oceans with bacteria from Earth that's stuck to Juno.

"We're finding that Jupiter's magnetic field is unlike anything previously imagined,"said Connerney". They were able to make maps of the magnetic field at the surface and the region below the surface where the dynamo originates. "Juno's investigations of the magnetic environment at Jupiter represent the beginning of a new era in the studies of planetary dynamos". In the southern hemisphere, however, the magnetic field is consistently negative, becoming more and more intense from the equator to the pole.
