This is the biggest storm in our solar system. Big red dot. Astronomers tell us today that its wind – at least within its range – accelerates.
The , Which is an almost mythical figure of Jupiter. Its unique identity. A gigantic Which extends into From More than 15,000 km long and nearly 12,000 km wide. So this is slightly larger than the size of our own earth! And this It is thrown there at an insane speed of over 640 kilometers per hour.

But today,The University of California, Berkeley (United States) reports that the average wind speed increased by 8% within the red spot gradient range between 2009 and 2020. Quiet.
This result, the researchers thanked for the temporary coverage – more than 30 years now – and . “Only a space telescope can capture Jupiter’s air in great detail.”, Says Amy Simon from Goddard Space Aviation Center From , A . The evolution here is really weak. The Earth is less than 2.5 kilometers per year.Space – The machine on Jupiter can distinguish only the 170 km diameter of the Hubble Space Telescope. And a This made it possible to follow hundreds of thousands of wind vectors each time Hubble observed
Understanding the Physics of the Great Red Spot
Astronomers need to work now to understand what this increase is . Very difficult task, because Hubble could not see the bottom of the high pressure well. But researchers are curious. This is an interesting part of the puzzle that will help you understand what fuels the Great Red Spot and how it maintains its energy. “
Keep in mind that this has fascinated astronomers since the 1870s. From then on, they understood that it had a wedding cake texture. Many sites withTopping the center that falls on the outside. The researchers also noted that the size of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot decreased and became circular over time.
