Here's a trend happening in outer space... Storms are brewing on Jupiter and Jupiter's little red spot has started to increase!
WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- The highest wind speeds in Jupiter's Little Red Spot have increased and are now equal to those in its older and larger sibling, the Great Red Spot, according to observations with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
The Little Red Spot's winds, now raging up to approximately 400 miles per hour (about 645 km per hour), signal that the storm is growing stronger, said the NASA-led team that made the Hubble observations.
The increased intensity of the storm probably caused it to change color from its original white in late 2005 to red, the findings published by the team claimed on NASA's website on Wednesday.
1. Growing Strength of Little Red Spot - Opportunity for space exploration companies to study the changes and long-term impacts on Jupiter's atmosphere and climate.
2. Increasing Wind Speeds on Jupiter - Opportunity for aerospace manufacturers to develop new technologies and strategies for navigating through high wind conditions in outer space.
3. Color Change in Little Red Spot - Opportunity for companies that specialize in color-changing materials to explore potential applications in space equipment and technology.
1. Space Exploration - Companies can explore the growth and behavior patterns of Jupiter's storms to better understand planetary systems in our solar system.
2. Aerospace Manufacturing - Companies can develop new technologies to improve propulsion and control in high wind conditions in space.
3. Materials Science - Companies can study the factors that caused the Little Red Spot to change color and investigate potential materials for space equipment that change color under certain conditions.
