Jupiter

Jupiter is the 5th planet from the sun and Mercury,Venus,Earth, and Mars come beforeit.

Jupiter is 483,800,000 miles, which is 778,500,000 kilomters, and 5.2 AU from the sun.

Jupiter is named after theRoman King of gods commandingrain,thunder, and lightning.

The length of day is 9 hours and 56 minutes.The length of year is 4,332 Earth days.

The average density is 1.326 g/cm3. Jupiter has less than 25% of Earth's density. Earth's average density is much more than Jupiters. It is 5.514 g/cm3.

The temperature range is from -234 degrees farenheit to 43,000 degrees farenhiet. In celcius degrees that is -145 to 23,871.1.

The diameter of Jupiter in miles is 86,881. In kilometers 139,822. Jupiter is 11.2 times bigger than Earth.

This is Jupiter's symbol.

Jupiter's gravity is 24.79 and Earth's gravity is 9.807. The percent of Earth's gravity that Jupiter has is 252.8%. If you weighed 100 pounds on Earth you would weigh 254 pounds on Jupiter.

The most common elements on Jupiter are hydrogen and helium. Their phsical state is that they are both gases.

Jupiter's gases are hydrogen, helium, mettalic, methane, and ammonia. Almost 90% of gases in Jupiter is hydrogen and nearly 10% is helium. Jupiter's atmosphere has many clouds.

Jupiter has 63 moons, but its main moons are Lo, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. Ganymede is the largest moon in our ice solar system. Lo is the most volcanically active in our solar system. Europa is made up of mostly water. Callisto has the lowest reflectivity.

There has been 6 probes that have been launched to Jupiter. I will tell you about 5 of them. Pioneer 10 was launched on December 3, 1973. It reported the amount of hydrogen and helium on Jupiter. Voyager 1 and 2 were launched in March and July in 1979. They dicovered lightning in Jupiter's clouds. The rest of the probes were Galleleo, and Ulysess.

Jupiter has a big red spot, and in it is a storm of clouds. It's surface is covered with red, brown, yellow and white clouds. It has four sets of rings which are the halo rings,the main ring, the Amalthea Gossamer ring, and the Thebe gossamer ring. The rings are faint and dark so you can hardly see them. The voyager captured footage of volcanic eruptions.

You would not be able to live on Jupiter because there would be no where to stand because Jupiter is made of clouds. You also would expereince many storms. You would also weigh more if you lived there. It would be highly dangerous to live there even though you can't.
