What is the closest planet near Earth's moon?

Well, it is obviously Earth. But if you meant the nearest planet (excluding Earth), it varies from time to time; at their closest approaches Venus is around 45,000,000 km away to the Earth and Mars is around 80,000,000 km away from the Earth. But they aren't always or even usually at their closest approach to Earth. Whether Earth and the Moon are closer to Venus or to Mars depends on the three planets' relative positions in their orbits. When Mars is at opposition it is only about 80 million km from Earth and the Moon (60 million km if the opposition occurs at Mars' perihelion), and when Venus Is at superior conjunction it is 225 million km away.

How far is Jupiter from the Sun?

Because the orbit of Jupiter around the sun is not a perfect circle, its distance from the sun depends on where it is in its orbit.

At Perihelion(closest point in the orbit to the Sun): 740,573,600 km / 4.95 AU / 460,171,100 miles

At aphelion (farthest point in the orbit to the Sun): 816,520,800 km / 5.458 AU / 507,304,400 miles

The semimajor axis of its orbit is: 778,547,200 km / 5.2 AU / 483,711,400 miles

Its average distance from the sun is 5.2 AU (5.2 times the average earth/sun distance) or about 43.3 light-minutes.

Planet Earth

How far from Earth is Jupiter?

Because both planets orbit the sun, the distance varies, since at some times both will be on the same side of the sun, but at other times, on opposite sides.

When Jupiter and Earth are closest, Jupiter is 390,682,810 miles (628,743,036 km) from Earth. The Earth is 93,000,000 miles (149,668,992 km) from the Sun. Jupiter is 483,682,810 miles (778,412,028 km) from the Sun. At our most distant, Jupiter is 576,682,810 miles (928,081,020 km) from the Earth, when the two planets are on opposite sides of the Sun.

Measured in Astronomical Units (AU), the distance between Earth and Jupiter varies from 4.2 AU to 6.2 AU.

An Astronomical Unit is approximately 93,000,000 miles (149,668,992 km), or the mean distance from the Earth to the Sun. Therefore, the distance between the Earth and Jupiter can be anywhere between slightly over four times or six times the distance from the Earth to the Sun.

The calculations are very close, but approximate, and also depend upon the slightly varying mass of the Sun, which has an effect on orbital distances.

Who is Io?

Io is the fourth largest moon in our solar system, and is the most geologically active planet in our solar system.

It is named after Io, a priestess of Hera who became one of the lovers of Zeus.

What is planet Tamen?

Fictional.

The planet "Tamen" was a fictional planet created by imaginative minds.

It's said the planet is "100 times the size of the sun".

This is scientifically impossible. If a planet was 100 times the size of the sun, gravity would be too great on the planet, which will cause it to condense and create an extremely large black hole, sucking up everything in it's path. Planet Earth included.

The fifth planet from the sun is Jupiter.
Counting outwards from the sun, the fifth planet in our solar system would be our largest and most massive planet, Jupiter.

Animal Life
Planet Jupiter

Why can't animals survive on Jupiter?

Some microorganisms are very resistant to radiation and vacuum. But the real question is, could a form of life evolve based on, say, electronics instead of chemistry? If so, then the answer to your question is "possibly." After all, we're beginning to build semi-autonomous space probes which in some ways are a bit like intelligent life forms. A few decades from now, we'll be building intelligent self-replicating space probes, and the distinction between living things and machines will disappear, so my answer to your question is a qualified "yes." These "animals" would eat interplanetary dust and gas and use the energy from radiation.

Temperature
Planet Jupiter

What is the temperature of Jupiter?

Jupiter has a vast range of temperatures, and there is no definable surface within the dense atmosphere.

The outermost cloud layers are exposed to the near-absolute-zero temperatures of space, while the core of the planet has high temperatures because of the intense pressure of the atmosphere planet bearing down at it. At the cloud tops, the temperature of Jupiter is thought to be as low as -161° C (112 K). Deeper into the atmosphere, temperatures increase to as high as 36000° near the rocky core.
Jupiter's temperature ranges from -234o_ 17,540.33oF.
-166 degrees Fahrenheit.
-230 degrees Fahrenheit

I think it mean big planets with gas on them because since gas giants are based on planets. One gas giant is Jupiter. I hope this answers your question.
