Jupiter

Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe. If it were hollow, all of the planets in the solar system would fit inside. Also, more than 3000 Earths could fit inside easily.

Juipter is the brother of Neptune and the son of Saturn. You might also know that Jupiter means the ruler of the heavans and the gods.

Gravity on Jupiter is much stronger than gravity on Earth. If you were 100 lbs on Earth you would wheigh about 245 lbs on Jupiter! Since Jupiter has more mass it has more gravity.

Jupiter's orbit is like other planets orbits because it is eliptical not circular. One year on Jupiter is equal to about 12 years on Earth. This happens because it is farther from the sun than Earth is.

Jupiter is made of gas, hydrogen and heilium. It is covered in frozen clouds that make up the colors that we see. The different colors are called zones. The clouds are more than 100 miles thick.
