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

    The great red spot is so iconic but we still have so much to learn, especially about extreme storms so studying it could be very helpful for the increasingly extreme storms here on earth.

    This storm has possibly existed for more than 350 years. I think It would be a major missed opportunity if we didn't study the mechanics behind what makes such a storm possible.

    You can't take pictures of Jupiter without at least one of the Red Spot!
