Jupiter holds many mysteries but thanks to spacecraft such as Juno, scientists now have a pretty good idea of what lurks inside of this colossal planet. So lets put on our super science fiction space suits and dive directly into Jupiter! But what will we find????

Falling into Jupiter description (based on the popular Reddit post by Astromike23)
You would first fall through the high, white ammonia clouds, at about 0.5 atmospheres, which is half the atmospheric pressure at sea level on Earth. The suns light would still be visible, but it wouldn't warm you as it is incredibly cold at this altitude, dropping to below -150 degrees Celsius. Because the gravity of Jupiter is so strong you would be descending roughly 2.5 times faster than if they were falling towards Earth you would eventually reach the bottom of the Ammonia clouds, feeling a pressure of 1 atmosphere. At this point, the sun can still be seen but its light is being filtered by the clouds above, resembling an overcast day back on Earth. But below, you would see the next stage of your journey, rolling brown ammonium hydrosulphide and ammonium sulfide clouds, which start at about 2 atmospheres and become more and more brown the further you travel through them. As you enter these clouds, the light from the sun would slowly diminish and the temperature would start to heat up due to the ever-increasing pressures around you. The further you descend the darker it will become until it is completely black, but then huge flashes of lightning illuminate the now dark environment you find your self in, revealing towering white water ice clouds that are causing rumbling thunderstorms to occur. As you pass through this cloud stage the pressure would increase to a crushing 10 atmospheres and the temperature would have risen to 20 degrees Celsius. Using your hi-tech sci-fi helmet you can now see what's around you, but you would quickly realise that the cloud layers were the easy part of the adventure. As you emerge from the bottom of the water ice clouds the pressure would become intense and the temperature would drastically increase to above 200 degrees Celsius. After a very very long time of the sinking, you would start to notice the atmosphere becoming thicker and eventually you stop as your density equals out with the environment around you. But because your suit is extremely high tech it allows you to sink further into this abyss just to see what lies beneath. After an extremely long wait, you would have now sunk 13,000 miles into Jupiter and into to the metallic region at 2 million atmospheres. Here the hydrogen has become so dense that it has become a type of liquid metal and this is what is causing Jupiter's strong magnetic field. The temperature would continue to increase, becoming hotter than the surface of the sun as the hydrogen-metal around you glows white hot and illuminates this strange environment. At this stage, most materials would instantly crumble and dissolve, but because your science fiction space suit is super strong you can keep descending through this ocean of liquid metal. After a seriously long time of sinking through this abyss, you would eventually hit rock bottom, literally. This would be the final stage of your journey, you would be standing on a surface perhaps 10 times the mass of Earth and made of rock and exotic ices, at a pressure of above 25 million atmospheres. Surrounding Jupiter's core is a huge mixture of rock and liquid hydrogen metal that has been called the fuzzy layer and this is where your adventure would end.
