Southern Jupiter from Perijove 3

Southern Jupiter looms some 37,000 kilometers away in this JunoCam image from December 11. The image data was captured near Juno's third perijove or closest approach to Jupiter, the spacecraft still in its 53 day long looping orbit. With the south polar region on the left, the large whitish oval toward the right is massive, counterclockwise rotating storm system. Smaller than the more famous Great Red Spot, the oval storm is only about half the diameter of planet Earth, one of a string of white ovals currently in the southern hemisphere of the Solar System's, ruling gas giant.

And he wasn’t exactly wrong: people everywhere put chickens in their freezers to preserve them. Sadly for him Bacon was a man too far ahead of his time. In 1626, electricity hadn’t even been invented let alone artificial cooling. But did that stop Bacon? Of course not.

The chicken never froze. But Bacon caught a cold that turned into pneumonia, and died shortly afterward.
