I think that getting the chance to peer deep inside those vast, red swirling storms at closest opportunity will provide a deep insight into how something like that can exist and sustain for so long

    I would absolutely love to see a clear picture of the big red spot! It's not only iconic and one of its main features, but it would be interesting to see if we have had a misconception about it this entire time.

    The Great Red Spot is so iconic to Jupiter and incredibly fascinating. I think an up close shot of this would help provide a lot of clarity towards something that is so interesting to many of us, yet so unknown.

    The great red spot is something we're all taught about in basic astronomy/science classes, even in middle and high school! Seeing a clear picture of that spot would be something everyone can recognize and find interesting because it's really well known and relatable
