    And no I'm not going to agree about the fluidic wobble of the rotating in a wave motion. Unless you can prove a hoopla hoop fall to the ground while it does a rotational spin causes a cyclone all the way down to the point it will hit the flat surface of the ground.

  2. Bored

    Then again an opposing force of attraction could explain why they are so small so 1 force creates a Kinetic motion of direction based on the polarity of the rotational core within Jupiter and that same force which oppose in the directional force maintains them to be a small vortex storm…

    You could be mixed up with density versus velocity and speed. A thousand times faster then the earths core, could be cesium or it could be something lighter then Mercury..

    Heh can u imagine if the core was made of liquid sodium, projected in the hydrogen gas field.. The minute water touches that core kaboom splash! It becomes highly reactive to water..

    Great red spot maybe equivalent of Earths "Vulcano" just in gas environment, pressure release valve from down bottom reactions, it is clearly reverse "whirlpool" which fails to close because is fueled by constant side energy.

    Bullcrap. You're nothing but stealing peoples' money by these "science projects" of yours… Meqning: Buying new houses, cars, jewelry, luxury vacations…

    I AM A RANDOM YOUTUBE COMMENTER AND I HAVE NO QUALIFICATION IN ASTROPHYSICS BUT I AM ANGRILY REJECTING EVERYTHING THIS MAN IS SAYING BECAUSE IT CONTRADICTS SOME DUBIOUS NONSENSE I READ ON THE INTERNET THAT I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE BECAUSE I AM INSUFFICIENTLY EDUCATED TO KNOW BETTER. HE'S LYING TO US, SHEEPLES!

    Wow! What a wonderful presentation 👍👏 I can watch & hear such sessions forever without getting bored. So much information & knowledge. I wish they publish complete unedited videos about their incredible findings about "Jupiter's"

    One's mental image of Jupiter should have just changed drastically (become more refined)…

    Now, to get philosophical (since it is so direly needed):

    The first question is the Second Greatest Question of Life: Now What? (the Greatest being 'Why Bother?' and neither have been answered adequately yet by humans) (enter me). Specifically, the 'Now What?' in this case is 'Now what can one do with all of this new knowledge?' (and I am spurred to ask from the viewpoint of the practical tradesman culture that I was born into).

    The first practical use that comes to mind is energy – harnessing the variety of energy sources available (kinetic, magnetic, thermal, radioactive, pressure, chemical). The next 'Now What?' question is, 'Now what can we do with all of that harnessed energy?' Powering manufacturing immediately comes to mind… and the next 'now what' question would be, 'What would be the goal of all of that manufacturing?' Sadly, with clueless humans, the goals will be clueless (and foolishly subjective, courtesy of failed philosophers), and they will fuel vanity, fashion, envy, jealousy, xenophobia, prejudice, hate, war, domination, manipulation, greed, crime, depravity, absurdity, frivolity, aimlessness, idleness, depression, despair, and finally suicide (sorry, humans, you are still lacking on the philosophical front, and all of that knowledge will go down the toilet, cluelessness being blindly destructive) (enter me again) (though trying to improve the philosophical paradigm of humanity has been like trying to change the course of the Titanic with a canoe paddle).

    What does all of that mean?

    It means knowledge is far outpacing wisdom (and let's call wisdom 'good sense', since the word 'wisdom' has been abused by pretenders, frauds, knaves, and charlatans (who have destroyed many other words, too, such as 'truth', 'enlightenment', and 'salvation'), and its perverted offerings having been lapped up by fools).

    So three cheers for the blind acquisition of knowledge (I am being sarcastic – it rates no cheers).

    So, now what? Do we stop acquiring knowledge, or do we address the inadequate state of human wisdom? (and you would be surprised at how many people would recommend the former, out of self-serving (and ultimately suicidal) knavery, out of malnipulated (my spontaneous term) herd mentality (not to completely knock herd mentality, it has its virtues), out of sheer foolish capriciousness, and out of irrational fear). Philosophy Out. Great science – from clueless beings.

    18 miles per second then. Then you only need another 185, 982 to reach the SPEED of Light. That would make a Light Year of space travel more real!!

    BTW how much time does your craft Under Age, in other words how much younger is your craft than the rest of us here, on Earth Planet dirt, Terra, 3rd Rock from the SUN!!!

    What the MAX speed for Slingshot Transit/effects, can it grow only to an X VALUE or could one grow it to such level in the near ATMOSPHERE Slingshot event to get closer to the Speed of Light, and NO I'm not suggesting a Sun super Slingshot event.

    Ich finde, man darf für den Zivilationswachstum nicht durch Leichtsinn und die Erfolgssucht aufs Spiel setzen. Es gibt immer einen Weg, sein Team als Anführer sicher und doch stetig ans Ziel zu bringen. Vor allem wenn es Um Menschenleben geht.

    Steve loves nothing more than throwing your theories in the trash. Fear his probe, results may or may not debunk your lifes work. I can dig it

  13. Zeedijk Mike

    One of the best lectures I have seen for a long time. Good and clear presented and very good answers in the Q & A. Even a "We don't know" can be a good answers. That's what this kind of science is about. Getting the answers to the stuff we don't know.

  14. spike lee stree

    The thinking goes thatJupiter was a failed star. Usually stars form binary systems but the sun got most of the material and Jupiter got winced.. thank goodness because if Jupiter was an actual star, we wouldn't be here

  15. Scott Parsons

    Jet engines and rocket engines are not the same thing. Why is NASA connected with jet engines?
    “Living in a world of pure imagination.”
    Thunderbirds are go, to infinity and beyond, engage the warp engine, to explore strange new worlds, “Eliot”, close encounters of the third kind, biddy biddy biddy, it’s full of stars, use the force, aliens and predators, total recall, etc, etc.

    Tesla car traveling to Mars, wall-e-like-robot on Mars looking for intelligent life, men walking on the moon, photos of the entire Milky Way galaxy, Folk docking with ISS at ruffly 20x the speed of a bullet, Sputnik, Hubble, flying stuff into the sun, gadgets orbiting, sling shot planet hopping, expanding space, bendy-space-time-via-matter, Infinite vacuum, light years, black holes, galaxies, solar systems, manmade satellites thousands of miles away from earth/ice and ocean. All seems sci-fi to me.

    5 cyclones around the south and 8 around the north stable over 2 years. That is both random and consistent in a way that begs to be discovered. It's a shame we are finding all these wars to fight instead of investing half of our discretionary funding on something productive.

  17. Colin Cutts

    Utterly brilliant presentation by Dr Levin . I cannot pretend to have understood a great deal of it, but the fact that I understood ANY of it is testament enough of Dr Levin's grasp of, and enthusiasm for, his subject.

  18. Riaan Stander

    Two things: 1. The total of storms on the North- and South poles are 5 and 8. Anything to do with Fibonacci? Any other numbers that do fit into the pattern? 2. What have we so far learned about our own planet by looking at the New Jupiter?

  19. George Gormley

    Glad to hear that Juno has been a successful mission up to date. Good luck NASA towards achieving your expectations and thank you for your insightful learning program.

  20. DigitalMan34

    everything sound interesting, I didn't understand a lot but it sounds amazing maybe I'll watch this video a bunch of times see if i can catch more

  21. Shafi Nabard

    I don't have time to watch this video all the to the end, but i really enjoy knowing about what's happening in the space. Thanks for the info

  22. judy churley

    Remember, before you post comments, just because you don't understand complicated science, doesn't mean it is not true, or it is not a valid theory.

  23. ghostfifth

    Is it possible that the expansion of space causes forces inside of the space contained by atomic clouds to push outward on the surrounding matter causing an upward push that keeps you pressed down in some way ?

  24. im12run2trouble

    Thankk you NASA This is great for putting me to sleep every night. Only takes about 5 minutes and i'm out like a light. Appreciate it.

  25. Petefirside Space

    So we learned that most of the atmosphere is made up of ammonia, but he said in the question section that most of the atmosphere is hydrogen and helium. Which one is it? Ammonia is made up of hydrogen and nitrogen. Where is the nitrogen? In the spectrum slice of the atmosphere, in the spaces where there isn't ammonia, what's in it's place, or is it just nothing, or just a dilution of ammonia. Where is the helium?
    I have a lot more questions about what he said, and what he didn't say. 80 scientific papers from a survey which has lasted nearly 3 years. 26 papers per year. Where can I get to read these papers. Are they in the public domain?
    It seems to me that the speaker only wants us to know what he is telling us. Bit of a control freak. (just my own opinion)

    . I particularly liked the first question he took, when the person who asked the question said really quickly right at the end…."we kinda knew that Jupiter had a metallic core made of hydrogen years ago, we didn't need you to tell us".

    Priceless

    isn't the topological data misinterpreted by the artist ?
    the height maps should go from dark=low to bright=high.
    would make a totally different 3d model…

    SPIRO GRAPHICALLY SURVEYED, I/E ORBITAL SURVEYED JUPITER'S ATMOSPHERE….JUPITER''S ATMOSPHERE COMPOSITION HYDROGEN. HELIUM. OXYGEN AND OTHER KEY ELEMENT'S MAKES JUPITER A FAILED STAR I/E BROWN DWARF STAR….THE AMOUNT OF MAGNETIC AND RADIATION THAT ENVELOPES JUPITER IS AWESOME! SIMILAR TO A STAR'S! ….BUT! IN JUPITER'S CASE A RELATIVELY COLD FUSION PLANET VERY SIMILAR TO PLANET SATURN ,,,,CENTRAL CORE I/E HOT NUCLEUS SPINNING VERY FAST …….PERPETUAL MOTION SUSPENDED IN TIME AWESOME!

  28. Above & Beyond Vapor

    It is actually not 5 and 8 stable circumpolar cyclones. It is 6 and 9 cyclones. He is not counting the cyclone in the middle of each of these configurations.

  29. Above & Beyond Vapor

    The stable pattern of cyclones at the poles strongly suggests a principle of physics we haven't developed yet. It can't just be random accident.

  30. Prince Wurst

    Why has this interesting presentation such a bad like / dislike ratio of about 7 to 1 ? I hope that this is not the ratio of interested vs. ignorant people in real life!

  31. GlitterJuice

    Sounds similar to a black hole. Could a black hole be just a planet made of dark matter, and dark energy gasses just like jupiter is with its light matter and gasses?? Maybe dark matter and gasses have an extremely high magnetic force and gravitational pull. Maybe dark matter is a new element of metal with the highest magnetism we ever seen.

  32. GlitterJuice

    seems like the red spot and the other cyclone storms are like the gas giants versions of volcanos releasing some of the gasses from deep within the planet.

  33. Negentropist

    Who needs the metric or empirical systems when we have the ''football fields, Olympic swimming pools, school buses, 747 jumbo jets, Rode Island and Texas system"

  35. Tracy M

    So are the two poles with the 5 and 8 cyclones and the spinning direction responsible for keeping all the winds, gases, and storms on Jupiter from moving off the planet? Kind of like keeping a massive vortex going so nothing can move off on its direction?

  36. James C

    Now that you know that there's a pretty good sized ion field around Jupiter might it be used for another mission like Voyager provided they could add an ion propulsion engine to a Voyager 3 and 4. Voyager 1+2 used planetary acceleration orbits (terminology??) on it way out of the solar system without even knowing that the ion field was there. Maybe they could get a bigger boost off of Jupiter next time.

  37. zxwm Abcdef

    It looks like I am owed a 1 year subscription to astronomy magazine and a bottle of French rose wine. I made a bet back when I was 15 that the core of Jupiter was a supercritical H₂ metal with heavier atoms dissolved in it. In addition I made a bet that the core would have a fuzzy boundary. According to the last JPL talk I was proved correct. When I was a small child I bet my parents that Io would be geologically active because of tidal heating. I was proved correct when voyager passed by. I made another bet that neptune would have rings with particles concentrated in arcs. I was proved correct.

    I have been interested in Science, Space, and Meteorology (Weather)
    My whole life.
    Anticyclonic Storms
    Do not make any sense whatsoever:

    The clouds of the Great Red Spot are higher than the surrounding cloud deck.
    This means air from below is rising and condensing.
    Air in a High Pressure system is sinking
    And cloud formation is suppressed

    Low Pressure spirals inward;
    High Pressure fans out.

    Find the Picture online that Shows The Great Red Spot, but with another smaller vorticy to its Southeast.

    It is also spinning counter-clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere,
    But look carefully at the clouds of the (anti)cyclone.
    It seems to me that they are spiraling inward, which is discernable even from a still image.

    Finally, This smaller storm to the Southeast of The Great Red Spot
    Seems to have a structure vaguely familiar:

    OUR OWN TROPICAL CYCLONES!!!
    EXPLAIN THAT!!!
