It is all white. I don't see blue or any other color in this area.

    plus we can assess both the solar wind with telemetry based on gravity an employ DTN

    I'm no expert, but I'm guessing something like this should be the most "habitable" area on Jupiter. Obviously it doesn't have the optimal gravity of Saturn, but if you can find a very calm, stable area in a consistently upwelling band, you might be able to have a parachute that remains stationary at some equilibrium atmospheric pressure. (As I recall, the pressure for liquid water clouds is also greater on Jupiter; maybe this even works in your favor) So NASA might look at an area like this to see if a stable location for a long-term atmospheric project is feasible, whether by parachute, glider, even atomic powered aircraft. Does that make any sense...?
