By developing a new method for measuring isotopic ratios of water and carbon dioxide remotely, scientists have found that the water in Saturn’s rings and satellites is unexpectedly like water on the Earth, except on Saturn’s moon Phoebe, where the water is more unusual than on any other object so far studied in the Solar System.

JunoCam looks at the Great Red Spot

Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, an exceptionally long-lived storm churning south of Jupiter’s equator, has been observed continuously for nearly two centuries. Though this atmospheric vortex is the largest and longest-lived of any planet in our solar system, our observations suggest that the Great Red Spot is gradually shrinking: the major axis of the ellipse was ~21° in longitude 40 years ago, and only ~14° in the last few years.
