Scientists find 'Great Cold Spot' on Jupiter

Jupiter's atmosphere is between 700 and 1,000 Kelvin (800 to 1340 Fahrenheit), and the Great Cold Spot is about 200 Kelvin (360 degrees Fahrenheit) colder than the surrounding gas. The existing 15-year data set shows that the Great Cold Spot gets quite distorted at times, and sometimes disappears nearly completely. "The Great Cold Spot is much more volatile than the slowly changing Great Red Spot.

BRIEF: Oceans on Saturn's Moon May Be Habitable For Microbes

Dr David Clements, an astrophysicist at Imperial College London, said: "This discovery does not mean that life exists on Enceladus, but it is a step on the way to that result".
