Juno's other discoveries at Jupiter include clusters of 600-mile-wide cyclones at the planet's poles and an uneven magnetic field that is weak in some places, but in others is 10 times as strong as anything found on Earth.
"Juno found that the Great Red Spot's roots go 50 to 100 times deeper than Earth's oceans and are warmer at the base than they are at the top", added Juno co-investigator Professor Andy Ingersoll, from Caltech.
Nobody knows for sure how long the Great Red Spot has been raging on Jupiter, but most researchers agree that it's been swirling for at least 350 years.
The storm is being monitored by NASA since 1830 and is still a matter of debate for researchers. Current data shows it has been shrinking slowly; in the 19th century, as well as when NASA Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft gathered images, the spot was more than 2 Earths wide. However, the recent measurements by Earth-based telescopes and Juno findings say that the storm's width has diminished by one-third while its height has reduced by one-eighth since the Voyager times.
On Monday, scientists said that Juno had discovered a new area of radiation just above the planet's atmosphere at the equator. Energetic hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur ions were found to be moving at light speed in this zone.
"Juno's Microwave Radiometer has the unique capability to peer deep below Jupiter's clouds", Michael Janssen, Juno co-investigator from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a news release. The particles are believed to be derived from energetic neutral atoms (fast-moving ions with no electric charge) created in the gas around the Jupiter moons Io and Europa.
The spacecraft found another area of high-energy particles in Jupiter's inner radiation belt, where electrons move at almost the speed of light. Extremely high noise signatures were detected by Juno's Stellar Reference Unit (SRU-1) in the images collected by the team's radiation monitoring investigation as the craft passed through Jupiter's electron radiation belt.
Juno has been circling the planet that's made mostly of ammonia, methane, and water since it arrived in 2016 and makes an orbit about every 53 days.
The Juno probe has conducted eight scientific flybys over Jupiter, dipping its trajectory across the gas giant's upper atmosphere. Juno's ninth science pass will be on December 16. JPL researchers told NASA that this depth, along with the heat of the storm, explains some of the Great Red Spot's better known features, including it's out-of-this-world winds.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders pledged to provide a list of eyewitnesses whose accounts exonerated the president. Whereas Trump's tweets about Hillary Clinton have largely focused on allegations of corruption, his latest assault on Sen.

Disney has purchased 21st Century Fox's film studio and a large chunk of its television production assets for $52.4 billion. Fox has plenty of assets and intellectual properties that Disney could stand to make lots more money from.
The Nintendo Switch also attracts an on-the-go gaming base who might not always have time to sit at home on the couch and play. However, despite this early promise, Nintendo is still some way short of the runaway success of the Nintendo Wii.
It was the 56th career receiving touchdown for Thomas, moving him past Shannon Sharpe for No. 2 on the Broncos' all-time list. This was the way the Denver Broncos thought they'd play against that other NY team all those months ago.
Total average store prices increased by 3.1 per cent in November 2017 when compared with the same period a year ago . During the last three months overall, which smooths volatility compared to just one month, the picture is not good.
Weather conditions during this period will likely lead to snow-covered, slippery roads, especially in more rural areas. On the back side of the low, lake effect snow will set up, giving us additional snow for Wednesday and into Thursday.
Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, national chairman of the APC said, "I also congratulate other newly-elected PDP National Officials". The statement reads: "Our great party, the People's Democratic Party is, again, at the threshold of an historical moment".
OnePlus finally launched its special Star Wars Limited Edition OnePlus 5T in India on Thursday at a price of Rs 38,999. The device will be available in only one variant for now and this is the one having 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage.
Twitter has repeatedly fielded criticism from its users after product changes for not addressing the cultural problems. This was a cumbersome method to thread tweets and as such not a simple or intuitive way to go about it.
What really makes this meteor shower so attractive to witness is its comet-like orbit along with the presence of shooting stars. Just get aside from lights and stare up in any direction! And this year, they're predicted to yield about 120 meteors per hour.
