Hubble has released new images of Jupiter as part of OPAL: Outer Planets Atmospheres Legacy program. New storms are forming on the gas giant.


The venerable Hubble Space Telescope has given us another gorgeous picture of Jupiter and its moon Europa.

Roscosmos said additional air may be delivered to the station.
