Scientists finally have a suitable explanation for Jupiter’s weirdly colorful bands
Of all the planets in our Solar System, Jupiter is probably the most interesting to look at. It's just a big ball of fast-moving gasses in all kinds of wild colors. The planet hosts storms that could swallow the entirety of Earth, and while we can see lots of neat things happening near the planet's cloud tops it's a lot more difficult to determine what is actually going on deeper inside the planet.
Now, thanks to some fancy calculations and jet stream models inspired by Earth's own weather patterns, researchers have a new theory on just why Jupiter's crazy bands seem so perfectly arranged.
