A cylindrical projection of Jupiter stitched together from photos taken by the Cassini spacecraft during its December 2000 flyby of the planet.
A cylindrical projection of Jupiter's surface from the "Journey to Jupiter" project led by Peter Rosén in Stockholm. Rosén's team combined more than 1,000 high-resolution photos of Jupiter taken over the course of 102 days to create a time-lapse video.
Callisto, Jupiter's moon-Spectacular! According to NASA, it has the darkest surface of the four Galilean moons, but is twice as bright as our moon :) It is also the most heavily cratered object in the entire solar system! More
The mystery of why Jupiter's Great Red Spot did not vanish centuries ago may now be solved, and the findings could help reveal more clues about the vortices in Earth's oceans and the nurseries of stars and planets, researchers say. The Great Red Spot is the most noticeable feature on Jupiter's surface — a storm about 12,400 miles (20,000 kilometers) long and 7,500 miles (12,000 km) wide, about two to three times larger than Earth. Winds at its oval edges can reach up to 425 mph (680 km/h).
