New data gathered by NASA’s Juno orbiter indicate that Jupiter’s winds run deep into its atmosphere and last longer than similar atmospheric processes found on Earth. The findings, published in the March 8, 2018 issue of the journal Nature, will improve understanding of Jupiter’s interior structure, core mass and, eventually, its origin.

Jupiters turmoil more than skin deep: researchers Paris (AFP) Jupiters tempestuous gassy atmosphere stretches some 3000 kilometres (1860 miles) deep and comprises a hundredth of the planets mass studies based on observations by NASAs Juno spacecraft revealed Wednesday. The measurements shed the first light on what goes on beneath the surface of the largest planet in the Solar System which from a distance resembles a colourful striped glass marble. Galileo viewed the stripes on Jupiter…
Nasa reveals stunning pictures of Jupiter like nobody has ever seen before
Jupiter is covered in intense, massive storms far more complex than anyone had expected, Nasa has revealed. The geometric clusters of cyclones that cover the planet's poles are just one of the various discoveries reported by scientists studying data sent back from Nasa's Juno spacecraft, which is circling the planet. The team has seen the cyclones churning in Jupiter's deep atmosphere in far greater detail than ever before
ESA’s Herschel space observatory has solved a long-standing mystery as to the origin of water in the upper atmosphere of Jupiter, finding conclusive evidence that it was delivered by the dramatic impact of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 in July
