I think that getting the chance to peer deep inside those vast, red swirling storms at closest opportunity will provide a deep insight into how something like that can exist and sustain for so long

    This is so unique to this planet a picture would be awesome.

    The Great Red Spot is such a defining feature of Jupiter that it has to be captured in fine detail. The fact that a storm can be that big and persist so long is amazing, and we need to learn more about it.

    This feature is interesting, yes because it is iconic, but also because of its color and persistence. My hope is that Juno will make deep-atmosphere observation with its microwave radiometer to explore its structure.
