Jupiter

Jupiter's Mysteries Revealed

The Juno Science Team, which includes School of Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Paul Steffes, has published its first observations of Jupiter. The researchers describe a chaotic scene of ammonia, cyclones and bands of storms that extend far deeper beneath the planet’s clouds than previously thought.

As Steffes says, "Jupiter is full of far more surprises than we ever dreamed."
