IMPORTANCE OF WATER
The Hubble Space Telescope has been monitoring activity in Jupiter's atmosphere for many years. Occasionally, it glimpses giant storms that suddenly appear, bursting from below the clouds. Evidence suggests that these storms are triggered when the heat locked up inside Jupiter warms the water clouds that lie just below the cloud tops. Juno will be able to study deep inside those cloud layers and learn what makes those storms churn.
