Juno Is About To Get Closest To Red Spot Of Jupiter

  • Juno Is About To Get Closest To Red Spot Of Jupiter

    Last year the spacecraft Juno entered the orbit of the Jupiter and on 10 July 2017, it will get closest to the Great Red Spot of the planet Jupiter. Since last year, scientists have been getting very useful information about the biggest planet in our Solar System and on 10 July, they will get a very close look of the Great Red Spot of the Jupiter.

    The planet Jupiter is famous for its Great Red Spot, which has a width of around 16,000 km, larger than the diameter the Earth and has been around for a minimum of 187 years. This is an excellent chance for space scientist to get the maximum data about Great Red Spot; this data will help us in understanding the reason for its existence. With the help of the ground-based telescopes, the Juno team will study this Great Red Spot of the Jupiter also known as a gas giant.

    For this major event scientist from Gemini North, University of California, Subaru, Tohoku University and from all around the world have come together to share their expertise, which will help in greater understanding. On the 18 May of this year, this team took a high-resolution data which Juno itself is not capable of taking.

    The data generated through these ground-based telescopes would aid Juno’s planned study of observing the Jupiter in the three major areas, according to Glenn Orton who works at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

    1. Allow us to view the complete planet at once.
    2. Allow us to view excellent details about Jupiter for a long time.
    3. Provide us high detail images with wavelengths of the magnetic spectrum, which cannot be obtained by Juno.

    The data collected with the help of the Gemini North telescope showed that the upper atmosphere and clouds of the Jupiter contain the combination of methane and hydrogen gas along with large waves expanding from the eastern part of the Great Red Spot, this data was in near infrared.

    While the data collected from the Subaru telescope with the help of its Cooled Mid-Infrared Camera along with Spectrometer, helped us in differentiating some uniqueness of the Great Red Spot. This uniqueness found was that the center of this Great Red Spot was cold and cloudy with unclear disturbance but it got warm and clear as we moved away from the center.

    This data would be combined with the data that scientist will get on the 10th of the July 2017 when Juno gets closest to the Great Red Spot. Data that we have until now tells us how different planet Jupiter is from another planet in our solar system, it shows us about Jupiter’s difficult internal structure, matchless energetic polar aurora and enormous polar cyclone.

    This Juno mission is under JPL’s control, which is a NASA’s field center and on 10 of the July, this will be a place, which will be under scientist’s scrutiny.

    Update: I spent the past few hours going over the full GSS (global snap score) algorithm for the "best of" mechanism and discovered a tiny error in the calculation. The problem was that instead of adding additional "listing value weight" (.5 per comment) value to a snap (this helps content stick around slightly longer), it instead resulted in adding additional up votes to global snap score based on the amount of comments. This of course is not how the algorithm was intended to work, so I fixed the issue and ran an update for all content. The goal of this specific mechanism is to slightly reward snaps that have conversations going over snaps that don't have conversations, now that it's fixed you will see the proper vote score numbers. Thanks everyone for pointing this out, I'm glad we were able to sort this out.

    Also to clarify further, the goal of this specific mechanism is to increase the "stickiness" of a snap, to help it stick around a bit longer if there is an active conversation happening and not to increase it's ranking directly based on the up vote score.
