NASA Observes Increased Wind Speed ​​in Jupiter’s Giant Red Spot Storm

Suara.com – Giant Red Spot Jupiter It is the most famous hurricane in the solar system and scientists have been observing its movement for 150 years.

Recent studies, scientists NASA revealed that the Great Red Spot storm was moving faster and faster.

This phenomenon was observed by the Space Telescope Hubble. Wind speed in the outer lane of the Great Red Spot increased by up to 8 percent from 2009 to 2020.

Meanwhile, NASA said winds in the deepest lane were moving much slower.

The Great Red Spot Storm rotates counterclockwise and reaches speeds of over 664 km per hour.

“Hubble has a sharp telescope eye and a complete 11 years of data,” said Amy Simon, a NASA planetary scientist. CNET, Tuesday (28/9/2021).

Otherwise, he added, the change in wind speed might not be noticeable.

Even so, the cause of the increase in storm speed is a bit difficult to pinpoint because Hubble can only collect data about what is happening on the surface.

The giant telescope could not peer into the depths beneath the Great Red Spot.

According to scientists, the information could help to understand what triggers the Great Red Spot and how it retains its energy.

The Great Red Spot has long been an object of fascination. Some previous research suggests it is shrinking.

However, 2019 experts say there is no need to worry because the Great Red Spot will last for a very long time. That would give Hubble more opportunities to monitor major storms.
