The latest on the new red spot on Jupiter, unofficially named "Red Jr" is that the two spots may merge. I am speculating that when the two get close enough they will merge, forming a much larger cyclone, and that Jupiter's mantle may rupture, allowing the planet to disgorge the heavier materials in its core. Some of the theories are that the core runs 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit. An off the cuff idea would be that the Red Spot might function like an Earthly cyclone. A massive downdraft gets started then when the cyclone gets enough energy going, it sucks whatever is loose up into it. If the cyclone isn't strong enough the material just cools and falls back in. We're pretty sure it isn't doing it now, or not in quantities that are easy to see. If core is exposed, it will be a cataclysmic kind of event, an explosive release of hot materials that will continue until the core shrinks a little, then cut off abruptly. I hope that we can get a good look at it if it does happen. Yes, I am well aware of the fact that it will take one hell of a cyclone to allow that to happen. I am also aware of the fact that I have no good way handy to predict how big such a storm has to be. This is what I think of as an entertaining and plausible speculation, that when the two storms merge, they might produce such results. Both are damn big and the "mantle" of Jupiter is a fluid. Something that big almost has to have a vortex tens of thousands of miles deep and there are astronomers who already think that the Red Spot vortex extends down into the core. It's an almost meaningless distinction when you are talking about a twirling region of lower pressure that is still going to be several times the density of iron. I personally believe that the ancient people of the Earth did see Venus come out of Jupiter. Proving or disproving Velikovsky's theories about the exact physical processes is superfluous. Corroborating eyewitness testimony is all-important. Even if the witnesses are from several thousand years ago and some of them were less able than others to provide good detail, if you have hundreds of writings and hand-drawn pictures to compare, the picture is likely to become pretty accurate and reliable.
