A crescent Jupiter

Taken by the Juno spacecraft, looking up at Jupiter's south pole. Awesome. No nation does space exploration like our nation.]

That is some interesting geology/atmosphere/topography. I'm not sure which, exactly.

But very neat stuff.
Thanks from Hollywood

Beautiful!!

Donald Trump tells a space-loving 10-year-old to forget NASA — we need to fix potholes!

Beautiful pic but the Big Red Spot is in the wrong hemisphere and the pic needs to be rotated 180 degrees. I am not familiar with the Juno mission because I thought the Galeao (I can't spell it and neither can spell check) mission answered all the questions even with a broken main antenna.

The Juno Mission

The Great Red Spot is in Jupiter's southern hemisphere, and thus would be visible from a spacecraft above Jupiter's south pole. The GRS is a story in itself.

Thanks for now I see the Huge Red Spot in the southern hemisphere, just like it should be. I think a landing on Triton would be cool to see the liquid nitrogen volcanos in action and up close. Triton must be made like swiss cheese and more than cool to go inside one of those things.

I would hop on a rocket in 5 minutes from right now merely to go into earth orbit.

To head out to the solar system ... or the stars ...............

That would be more than awesome but I want to listen to Major Tom during blast off. Juno is the feminine of Jupiter.

edit: to put myself to sleep think about walking on the surface of a neutron star. My body has no mass and if I drop a feather from one meter, it hits the surface at 4 million miles per hour. A neutron star with a 16 mile diameter and then I start thinking about black holes of a little greater mass and a 6 mile diameter which makes me think about the unseen firewall. I discounted the singularity many decades ago. Both of us combining our minds might be able to figure this one out. I think a millisecond neutron star is not a sphere and a disc due to angular momentum.
