Fly into the Great Red Spot of Jupiter with NASA’s Juno Mission!
As I was perusing Science related videos, I came across this one by NASA as the take the viewer into the Great Red Spot of Jupiter as part of their Juno Mission... They have created an animation of images that is quite real in appearance... Note the following description from NASA:
"This animation takes the viewer on a simulated flight into, and then out of, Jupiter’s upper atmosphere at the location of the Great Red Spot. It was created by combining an image from the JunoCam imager on NASA's Juno spacecraft with a computer-generated animation.
The perspective begins about 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) above the cloud tops of the planet's southern hemisphere. The bar at far left indicates altitude during the quick descent; a second gauge next to that depicts the dramatic increase in temperature that occurs as the perspective dives deeper down. The clouds turn crimson as the perspective passes through the Great Red Spot. Finally, the view ascends out of the spot."
I hope you all enjoy this short video! Kerry ______________________________________________________________________________
