The closest-ever view of Jupiter is captured by NASA, and the reaction is anti-climactic

Pat and Stu

The latest images of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot were captured by NASA’s $1 billion Juno probe and released to the public Wednesday.

It’s one of the closest photos to date of the massive thousand-mile storm taking place in planet’s solar system. The Great Red Spot is Jupiter’s most recognizable feature and the images are the closest-ever view of the spot.

So, why doesn't anybody care?

Today on “Pat and Stu,” the guys discussed how little attention the spectacular photos received.

“Space travel doesn’t even seem all that notable anymore,” said Stu Burguiere.  “It doesn’t even make a blip anymore in the news.”

The storm is rumored to date back as far as the 1600s, according to NASA, however, it's unclear if stargazers during that time were viewing the same storm.
