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 hard  for someone to reach Jupiter to study it. If someone where to  travel to Jupiter, they wouldn't land.
Jupiter is made up of 90% hydrogen. The remaining 10% is almost  completely made up of helium, although there are small traces of  other gases inside.
One AU is 148,597,871 km, so 0.7 AU is 104,718,510 km. The velocity  of light and other electromagnetic radiations in free space is  299,792.458 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 after  Jupiter. 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....
the planet that is being commited is the 10th Planet "Vulcan"
Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto
Galileo Galilei discovered Jupiter in 1610
Neither. Jupiter is a gas planet. It does not have a definitesurface.
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 (flyby...
Jupiter does not produce light. It does, however,  reflect a lot of the sunlight that reaches it's surface. The  amount of light that a planet's surface reflects is call it's  albedo, and it's expressed as a value between 0 (nothing  reflected) to 1 (100% of light is reflected). Jupiter has an...
how many 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.
  Jupiter has a the great red spot.

At what distance from the Sun would a planet's orbital period be 3 million years?
The orbital period of Jupiter is 11.86 years. It orbits the Sun at  a radius of 5.2 AU and travels at a speed of about 13.07 kilometers  per 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.
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,...
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 miles  or 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.)
No it is a Gas Giant.
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 nosignificant amount of water anyway.
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 is  covered in yellow, white, brown and red clouds. Its most noticeable  feature 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.
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 orbits  Mars 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 13.07  kilometers per second. The average surface speed as it rotates is  12.6 kilometers per second.
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
Jupiter has three standards of rotation. The rotational period of  its magnetic field is 9.925 hours, while the rotational period of  the 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).
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 be...
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...
jupiter has 62saturn has 62 not including the moon lets in it ringsuranus has 22neptune has 8
The 'Great Red Spot' is a storm raging in the atmosphere of Jupiter and could not 'swallow' Jupiter any more than a storm on earth could swallow the earth.
There are three primay ways to limit exposure to radiation, and they are time, distance, and shielding. By decreasing the time you are exposed, you limit exposure. By increasing the distance between you and the source, you limit exposure. And by placing shielding between you and the source you limit...
not likely... i doubt we would survive on most planets because of temperatures and weathers. like on Jupiter we would be pulled in hard and fast then most likely be crushed into the ground :D
Sour gas is a natural fuel gas that has high concentration of H 2 S (hydrogen sulfide). The sulfide gives the gas an unpleasant odour like that of rotting eggs. When burned sour gas releases SO2 (sulfur dioxide) an acid gas that can corrode metals. Acid are often referred to as sour as the origin of...
Galileo Galilei was the one who discovered them.
Asteroid belt.They are not "interstellar", of course.
      The moon closest to Jupiter is "Metis". Of the 4 Galileian moons, "Io" (EYE-O) is the closest.
The moon that is described as having the largest mass is Ganymede.  This is one of the moons of Jupiter. Its mass is about 2.02 times  that of Earth's moon.
The planet is and always has been visible to the naked eye and has therefore been know to everyone since ancient times.
Since Jupiter is further than the moon, there is not as much gravity as the Earth and moon.
Jupiter can't fit inside the earth because earth is so small and Jupiter is so big!
  How fast does Jupiter revolve?!   How fast does Jupiter revolve?!
On Jupiter, you'd weigh 187.20 pounds.
the are all big and have craters
Multiply your weight by 2.364 to get the equivalent weight on  Jupiter.
The asteroid belt separating Mars and Jupiter is called the Main Asteroid Belt.
  David McCarter murdered three boys in Shelby County on Christmas night or the day after Christmas 1966 or 1967. It was somewhere around Lake Purdey, they were camping. One body was found in a pond or lake at Oak Mountain. I don't know how close to Helena this was. Two of the boys were brothers...
Io, Ganymede, Callisto and Europa are the four brightest moons of Jupiter.
the surface on jupiter is that it has no surface at all
Jupiter was found near the 1600 wich was like hundreds or years ago
Wont exist as the pressure and temp is too high. Any object will melt and the pressure would crush any object and any living things.
If he was evolved for that gravity, pressure, temperature and atmospheric composition, he'd be asking how can an alien live on Earth? After all, from a Jovian standpoint, we are far too hot a planet, the gravity is too small to hold a properly thick atmosphere, and we have "poisonous" levels of...
The average temperature of Jupiter is -234 degrees Fahrenheit. At  its core, Jupiter reaches its hottest temperature and can get as  hot as 43,232 degrees Fahrenheit.
