NASA’s 3D flyover of Jupiter’s North Pole is absolutely terrifying
Back in early March, NASA released some really stunning images that the Juno probe captured of Jupiter's poles. The pictures were created using the spacecraft's infrared sensor, which allowed it to see the underlying structure of the massive cyclones that cover the planet. These huge towers of wind were scary enough in the still images, but now NASA has taken the data and created a 3D "flyover" video of the turbulent atmosphere, and it's even more frightening.
NASA has been closely studying the weather patterns on Jupiter in an attempt to learn more about what powers its massive storms. Late last year, the Juno spacecraft provided some incredible insight into the workings of the Great Red Spot, revealing that it stretches hundreds of miles into the planet, and these new images are a continuation of that research.
