Hubble's jupiter and the shrinking great red spot

explanation: what will become of jupiter's great red spot? gas giant jupiter is the solar system's largest world with about 320 times the mass of planet earth. jupiter is home to one of the largest and longest lasting storm systems known, thegreat red spot (grs), visible to the left. the grsis so large it could swallow earth, although it has been shrinking. comparison with historical notes indicate that the storm spans only about one third of the surface area it had 150 years ago. nasa'souter planets atmospheres legacy (opal) program has been monitoring the storm more recently using the hubble space telescope. thefeatured hubble opal image shows jupiter as it appeared in 2016, processed in a way that makes red hues appear quite vibrant. modern grs data indicate that the storm continues to constrict its surface area, but is also becoming slightly taller, vertically. no one knows the future of the grs, including the possibility that if the shrinking trend continues, the grs might one day even do whatsmaller spots on jupiter have done -- disappear completely.

The only fear of sharks we should have is losing them. sharks have been on this planet for over 400 million years, but in the past couple of decades humans have been killing them at unbelievable rates. rates so high we could potentially make them become extinct in the next few decades. .
in 2000, shark deaths just from humans were estimated at 100 million a year. over the past few decades humans have been killing sharks for their fins and meat, they have been caught as by-catch at fisheries, and shark culling has been in full force in hopes of safer beaches and waters for humans....the list goes on. this is not just horrible for sharks but for the entire ocean as a whole. researchers have found that losing these apex predators can affect ecosystems all the way down to marine plants. .

the sharks are currently at a critical tipping point and now is the time to help save these gentle dinosaurs and our oceans. what can you do to help? stay tuned and we will share various ways of how you can help!!! 🎥: @paulnicklen

・・・
when most of us used to think of sharks, we would think of "jaws" with dramatic blasting trumpets and boat eating monsters. but as humans started to spend more time observing these apex predator's true behavior, we found that they are actually quite the opposite. as with any wild animal, as long as you respect them and give them space, they will do the same.

still not convinced? see for yourself... .

ps. the author of "jaws", peter benchley, regrets writing the book after now knowing what sharks are really like. he has since become a shark conservationist. .🎥 @sharkaddicts2

One of our favorite species to dive with, the dusky shark. be sure to follow @increasethesharkrate for the facts behind the fins. #factsbehindthefins #sharkaddicts #duskyshark #jupiter #florida #increasethesharkrate

I think it's safe to say that our fear of sharks has been derived from hollywood thrillers and how they convey shark attacks...but did you know there are only about 80 shark bites happening a year worldwide? and did you know many, if not all, could have be prevented? .
the more educated we can become about sharks and their behavior, the more we can understand why these attacks happen and how they can be prevented in the first place. .

questions like:
was there bait or a fish/whale carcass near by? fishermen fishing near by? was the water murky? was the person splashing around like a potentially injured fish? was it a surfer mistaken for a seal? was it around dawn/dusk? do they bite and let go? was it really the shark's fault?
.
these are all great questions that we need to explore as we learn more about shark behavior and the previous unfortunate human interactions. we are seeing that majority of these are just accidents, and we would like to help prevent those along with removing the fear from these gentle giants. i mean, look at that beautiful snaggle-toothed smile! . 🎥 @sharkaddicts2

Despite an estimated 100 million sharks caught every year, 90 percent of the world’s fisheries fully or over-fished, and oceans in trouble worldwide, there is growing optimism that conservation can work and restore healthy seas.

Going black and white this week. photography is an incredibly powerful tool for change. we can share their story! we can help people see their reality, their beauty and their vulnerability. our cameras are tools for change. keep shooting and keep sharing! change the tide for sharks.
