Planet Jupiter

Parent Category: The Solar System
The 5th planet from the Sun and the biggest planet in our solar system.


Jupiter has rings, but they are not as visible as those of Saturn.
Jupiter actually has no land. It is gas. This makes it sort of hardfor someone to reach Jupiter to study it. If someone where totravel to Jupiter, they wouldn't land.
One AU is 148,597,871 km, so 0.7 AU is 104,718,510 km. The velocityof light and other electromagnetic radiations in free space is299,792.458 km/second, so the time for the round trip is (2 *104,718,510 / 299,792.458) seconds - or 698.6 seconds (11 minutes,38.6 seconds.)
no it can not the red spot on Jupiter is a giant hurricane that can destroy anything that enters it but it does not suck it in
In the Solar System Saturn is 'after' Jupiter.
Saturn is the next furthest planet from the Sun afterJupiter. The order of planets is below. . Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune.
Jupiter is Gaseous Planet so no Lander/Rover can land on Jupiter.Voyager is basically a Spacecraft and spacecraft is used as flybyaround a planet or object. It had a flyby of Jupiter in1979. It is now outside the heliopause - the "bubble" of plasmacoming from the sun otherwise known as solar wind....
Jupiter doesn't orbit its moons because it has a greater mass thanthem.
Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto
Its not possible to land on these planets as there is no real surface. They consist of gaseous atmospheres that get thicker and thicker as you move towards the centre. There is no defined surface.
Jupiter and Neptune are father away from the sun than Earth.
Galileo Galilei discovered Jupiter in 1610
Neither. Jupiter is a gas planet. It does not have a definitesurface.
No... The Gas around Jupiter creates mass... Thus making it larger the Saturn!
As of February 2010, eight robotic probes have made been to Jupiter. Seven visited Jupiter for short periods as they flew by. One remained in orbit around Jupiter for almost eight years. They are: Galileo - 1995-2003 (orbit) Pioneer 10 - 1973 (flyby) Pioneer 11 - 1974 (flyby) Voyager 1 - 1979 ...
Jupiter does not produce light. It does, however, reflect a lot of the sunlight that reaches it's surface. Theamount of light that a planet's surface reflects is call it's albedo , and it's expressed as a value between 0 (nothingreflected) to 1 (100% of light is reflected). Jupiter has an...
how m any kilometers is Jupiter to the sun
Yes, because Jupiter is a gas giant planet. 90% of Jupiter'satmosphere is made up of hydrogen. The 10% is almost completelymade up of helium. But there are also small traces of gas inside.
\nJupiter has a the great red spot.
\nThe large size, the number of natural satellites, and the lack of a solid surface.

At what distance from the Sun would a planet's orbital period be 3 million years?
Type your answer here... Yes, Zeus's Weaknesses: Gets in trouble over love affairs, can be moody.
The orbital period of Jupiter is 11.86 years. It orbits the Sun ata radius of 5.2 AU and travels at a speed of about 13.07 kilometersper second.
10% of its atmosphere is made of heilum
At our closest point in our orbit, 390,682,810 miles. The earth is 93, 000, 000 miles from the sun. Jupiter is 483, 682, 810 miles from the sun. At our most distant, 576,682,810 miles, when we're on opposite sides of the sun.
4 main mon of jupiter are Io,calisto,europa, and Ganimedes.
It may have a lot of gas and a really high density. But it is no where near the temperature (caused via pressure//density) to ignite, the core of the sun is so dense and hot that it can force the nucleus of two atoms together. In addition, Jupiter is made of less flammable gasses than the sun.
jupiters moons are different some have an atmosphere and MOST are asteroids

Because they were clearly going around Jupiter, and not the Earth. Everything else could be explained as orbiting Earth (with some finagling in the form of the occasional epicycle to explain retrograde motion), but if the Galilean moons were orbiting Earth, they would have had to have been doing so...
The visible exterior of Jupiter consists of the clouds of its thick, gaseous atmosphere. They are estimated to be about 50 kilometers thick over a clear layer of liquid and gaseous hydrogen about 1000 kilometers deep. Most of Jupiter is hydrogen and helium, but the clouds contain methane, ammonia...
Jupiter is small.
No, it's tiny compared to the sun. If the state of Jupiter is this, then what's the state of Earth?
The surface area of planet Jupiter is 24,021,800,000 square milesor 15,373,952,000,000 acres.
Jupiter is more of a gas giant and the planet has a distinctive banded appearance.
You would weigh more on Jupiter.
An Alien on Jupiter is a Jovian, and 12 years on Earth is a Jovian Year.
Technically Jupiter is in space so it weighs nothing
Every solar system has a star, in our case it's the sun. Now the sun has different planets circling around it. Just like the earth, mars is one of the sun's planets. A star is a massive ball of plasma that is held together by gravity. (It's gravity is also greater than that of it's planets.)
Mercury's volume = 0.056 x Earths (6.08x10 10 km 3 ) Venus' volume = 0.857 x Earths (9.38x10 11 km 3 ) (Earth) volume = 1 x Earths (1.08x10 12 km 3 ) Mars' volume = 0.151 x Earths (1.63x10 11 km 3 ) Jupiter's volume = 1321.3 x Earths (1.43x10 15 km 3 ) Saturn's volume = 763.59 x...
No it is a Gas Giant.
The amount of days to travel to Jupiter would depend on the speedof the spacecraft that is used. There is 545.6 million milesbetween the distance from Earth to Jupiter.
NO NO & NO because Jupiter's gravity is 16x stronger than earth's, and Jupiter is made up of Gas so one step and you will find yourself in the middle core of Jupiter which can freeze you to death.
Jupiter takes 11.85920 (Earth) years to orbit the sun. It takes 9.925 (Earth) hours to rotate on its axis.
It's hard even to define the surface for a gas planet like Jupiter, but there's no significant amount of water anyway.
Jupiter has 63 moons and 4 main moons the main moons are called Io, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto.
Jupiter has several natural satellites (moons), over 60 have been confirmed. It has no man made satellites in orbit around it, but did have one between 1995 and 2003, an orbiter called Galileo.
Jupiter is one of the planets known as Gas Giants. Its surface iscovered in yellow, white, brown and red clouds. Its most noticeablefeature is the Great Red Spot, which is a spinning storm.
Not likely, because astronauts haven't seen any tornadoes on Jupiter. There have been massive storms (hurricanes and tropical cyclones). One of them is the Great Red Spot which is a humongous hurricane bigger then Earth. It has been running on Jupiter for more then 400 years.
You Identify Jupiters Moons By Seeing The Ammount Of Craters It Has And/Or Clicking here To Go To http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_are_Jupiters_four_moons
The closest planet to the moon is the Earth at 384,400 kilometers.The closest that a planet and its moon are is Phobos, which orbitsMars at 9380 kilometers distance.
Jupiter's width is 142 980 at it's equator.
At Jupiter's equator it's diameter is roughly 142,000 km
The orbital speed of Jupiter as it travels around the Sun is 13.07kilometers per second. The average surface speed as it rotates is12.6 kilometers per second.
Yes, the moon does have volcanoes, but they are practically dead. They have no volcanic activity.
because it has all these mega cool volcanic eruptions, like, and it creates an epicly wide surface area so it looks really cool from jupiter. not that ive actually been to jupiter. you know id actually like to go , wouldnt it be awesome?
it may have a rocky centre but this is not known
If it is a grey bird with a red "cap" it could be a Sandhill Crane
Unmanned space probes have flown close by Jupiter, makingmeasurements and taking pictures. No Human being has ever been anywhere close.
Even though the elements that make up Jupiter (hydrogen and helium) are gases on earth, the pressure inside Jupiter is so great that it squashes them. At this pressure and temperature, hydrogen cannot exist as a gas or a liquid. It forms what is called a "supercritical fluid." Because of this, some...
Jupiter has three standards of rotation. The rotational period ofits magnetic field is 9.925 hours, while the rotational period ofthe gases vary from 9.8 to 9.9 hours.
Saturn and Jupiter are similar because they both belong to the same planet feature, the outer planets. They are also both known as the gas giants and are the 1st and 2nd largest planets (Jupiter the 1st) and (Saturn the 2nd). The both have a lot of moons (Jupiter has 40 moons) and (Saturn has 30).
he made a telescope, made it look at images 20x closer. He looked at the Jupiter and then saw the four moons and called them the "Galilean Moons".
earth is smaller than jupiter. earth has life and jupiter does't. jupiter is a gas planet and not earth. earth is rock and jupiter is gas planet.
Jupiter can be destroyed but why would you want to? In about 5 billion years time, when our Sun turns into a red giant, it will start to shed it's outer layers into the outer Solar System. These solar winds will start to strip the outer atmosphere of Jupiter away from it's core. Whether it will...
i mostly think it's called great red spot but some people called it the big red eye
There are for planets made of gas not one they are Jupiter Neptune Saturn and Venus
No. Jupiter is a gas giant with no surface to stand on. If a ship were to try to land on Jupiter, it would descend through an atmosphere of hydrogen and helium that would become gradually more dense. As atmospheric pressure builds, the atmosphere slowly becomes very hot liquid. So, no.
Jupiter is the 5th planet from the sun about 450 milion miles away from the sun.Jupiter has the most fastest rotation period in the solar system with 9 hours and 55 minutes that's almost 3 times faster then the earth.Jupiter is the biggest planet in the solar system 1,300 times bigger then the earth...
No. The Great Red Spot is a very large storm on Jupiter. A redgiant is a type of star.
The answer is High in the atmsosphere it's very cold and windy. Far below the clouds it's hotter than a blast furnace and even windier, and at all levels within the clouds there's constant lightning. The Galileo probe reported higher and higher windspeeds as it encountered higher and higher...
