Scott' polar cap [ID: 166]

I would like to know if the polar cap has ice like some of the other planets.

    I'd like to know if the polar cap is an 'island of stability' away from the worst of the storms. Might the presence of ice create a rare 'land mass'? And how much radiation do the poles encounter?

    If you stand at the North Pole you will spin in place rather than "circling". With that being said, I wonder if a gas planet' gas will behave the same way? Will it be much calmer from the rest of the planet if the heat from friction and gravity will be less? Will it look much more solid and conformed rather than the Wood grain look?

    I agree polar region would be awesome. I think Cassini should dive straight into the vortex!

    I would like to see the contrast of jupiter and space

      I would like to know the temperature , activity in the polar region and Jupiter's magnetic field interaction in the polar region.

      There will be Ice-crystals in the atmosphere but there will be no frozen solid places of ice because beneath the atmosphere it's all liquid hydrogen which does not freez like water.

      I would like to know if in the polar region there are storms

        Also at that location ... ... please tell us if there is a rough hexagon shape in the clouds, similar to the one that Cassini saw at Saturn's north pole.
