63 known moons orbit Jupiter.
Jupiter doesn't orbit its moons because it has a greater mass than them.
about 67 moons:))))))
No, the moons of Mars (Phobos and Phoebe) orbit Mars. Jupiter is another planet and has its own moons.
Not our (the Earth's) moon but Jupiter has lots of its own moons that orbit it.
The moons stay in orbit around Jupiter due to the gravitational pull of the planet. As of June 2014, Jupiter has 63 known moons.
62 moons orbit Saturn, 67 orbit Jupiter, 5 orbit Pluto, 14 orbit Neptune, and 27 orbit Uranus.
Jupiter has 63 confirmed moons in orbit around it. No planets are in orbit around it, since they would then be classed as moons. The planets in orbit either side of Jupiter are Mars and Saturn.
Moons orbit Jupiter because of the combined influence of gravity. and the forward motion of the moons. If there were gravity along, the moons would fall into Jupiter. If there were only forward motion, the moos would fly off into space.
Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system and as such has a tremendous gravitational well. This gravity is what has enabled Jupiter to attract and keep in orbit its 67 moons.
The Galilean moons orbit the planet Jupiter.
Scientists have found 67 moons in orbit around Jupiter as of 2015.
the planet that has the most amount of moons is Jupiter which has 67 moons
Gravity holds satellites in orbit.
Only Jupiter, the Galilean moons are the four largest moons of Jupiter which Galileo discovered.The four satellites discovered by Galileo orbit Jupiter.
Jupiter's moons orbit Jupiter much like Earth orbits the sun.
No, planets orbit around the sun. There are over 60 moons that orbit around Jupiter though.
The Galilean moons orbit Jupiter.
Yes. Jupiter has 67 known moons. No planets orbit Jupiter, as any planet-like object that orbits a planet is considered a moon.
No. Jupiter is orbited by it's moons, but not by planets.
They orbit Jupiter.
the name of Jupiter's moons :Io 1.7 Earth days to orbit JupiterEuropa 3.5 earth days to orbit the JupiterGanymede 7.1 days to orbit JupiterCallisto 16.7 days to orbit JupiterIo is the nearest moon to Jupiter the Europa then Ganymede and the furthest away is Callisto
It is now known that there are 23 moons for the planet of Jupiter. For a long time it was believed that there were only 16 moons for this planet.
