In what's beginning to look like a case of planetary measles, a third red spot has appeared alongside its cousins â the Great Red Spot and Red Spot Jr. â in the turbulent Jovian atmosphere. The new red spot was previously a white oval-shaped storm. The change to a red color indicates its swirling storm clouds are rising to heights like the clouds of the Great Red Spot. Credit: M.

Erica Drezek and Ryan Fitzgibbons, filmmakers at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., interview Tara Clopper (left) and Dr. Marci Delaney. Clopper and Delaney were two of Goddard's education leads at the "Young Scientist Challenge," hosted at the center in October 2008. The challenge, sponsored by The Discovery Channel and 3M, brought ten middle school student finalists from across the country to vie for the title of "America's Top Young Scientist." Behind...
