Jupiter’s Polar Winds Create a Vortex Way Bigger Than Earth Itself

What exactly is going on with Jupiter’s crazy winds? And why are they even worth exploring? Let’s find out.

For the first time ever, scientists were able to directly measure winds in Jupiter’s stratosphere. The results were astonishing and reveal what a beast the largest planet in our solar system really is.

Jupiter is the oldest planet in our solar system, so by learning more about the planet and its weather, we can better understand the early history of our solar system.

So then, why are we looking at Jupiter’s winds? Well, each planet has its own unique conditions we can learn from, like a natural laboratory with its own “experiments.” And as for Jupiter, it’s known to be home to some of the stormiest systems.
