Scientists were able to qualitatively take a picture of the Great Red spot on Jupiter



Announcement!

At the disposal of scientists got new pictures of the Great red spot, which is located in pre-Equatorial parts of Jupiter. Photo was obtained by using the sensors of the probe "Juno". Now scientists can look at the spot the eyes of the photo sensors of the probe with the orbital height. The images were before, but before they publish them carefully retouched. Now, in order to create such high quality that the it took just to collect and unite into one some good satellite photos. Used images of spots in different spectra, overlaying all of the images allowed us to obtain qualitatively new informative document.
Now scientists say that they created a method for imposing more realistic than you can imagine. If the astronaut were flying in a capsule in orbit of Jupiter and would look at the focus of a huge storm, he would have seen just exactly the same here as in the photo image. In 2011 in the direction of Jupiter started the probe "Juno", in five years it reached Jupiter`s orbit, starting in 2016, studying the planet more closely.Along the way there were many problems with the engine and navigation systems, the repair was remote and mission because of this I began to have other limits. At the lower orbit, the probe failed to transfer, photos are made from high orbit.
Gradually probe approaching Jupiter, gradually images all better and juicier in color. Over the spot for centuries astronomers have observed the Earth. It is the huge size of the spot area of the anticyclone, the size of this area is about 22 thousand km in diameter. If you want to see pictures of stains in high resolution, look for photos on the NASA sites.
