Jupiter’s Earth-sized ‘Great Red Spot’ megastorm may only have 10 to 20 years left before it dies – DailyMail

One of the most spectacular storms in our solar system could fade away in as a little as a decade.

Jupiter’s megastorm, known as the ‘Great Red Spot’ is gradually disappearing, according to a Nasa researcher.

The storm was estimated to be about 35,000 miles (56,000km) in diameter in the 1800s – wide enough for four Earths to fit side by side.
