For the first time in history, we can see in incredible, glorious detail the storms that rage on Jupiter, thanks to Nasa’s Juno mission.
The US space agency released composite images on Twitter, with the findings published in a four-article collection in the journal Nature.
The #Jupiter you’ve never seen. New science results reveal massive cyclones that surround the planet’s north and south poles are lasting atmospheric features and unlike anything else encountered in the solar system. https://t.co/ZJfdARnSRe pic.twitter.com/IDnDu73rHd— NASA's Juno Mission (@NASAJuno) March 7, 2018
An international team of researchers analysed data from the Juno spacecraft and found a constellation of nine extremely powerful cyclones over Jupiter’s north pole and six over the south pole.
In certain places, the wind speeds are believed to exceed Category 5 hurricane, reaching 220 mph – making these storms far more powerful than the most intense storms on Earth.
However, people found themselves being reminded of a certain comfort food: pepperoni pizza.

Acording to this photo from NASA, Jupiter is actually pizza.— Brandon Jamal (@brandon_jamal_) March 8, 2018
And these computer-generated Nasa photos have left people craving for the snack.
I think the new Jupiter photos are just a marketing ploy to make me want some pizza. It's working— Galen (@GalenLoeffler) March 8, 2018
