JUPITER

- Jupiter has a mass of 1,898.3 x 10^24 kg. That's over 317 times greater than that of the Earth.- Jupiter has a maximum radius of 71,492 km, which is over 11 times greater than Earth's.- Jupiter's rotation period is 9.925 Earth hours. Compared to Earth's ~24 hours, Jupiter rotates over 2.4 times slower.

Atmosphere and Interior

Jupiter has the most powerful magnetosphere of any planet in the solar system. So powerful, in fact, that its radiation is roughly 1,000 times the lethal dose for humans at 400,000 rads.

Jupiter's atmosphere is dominated by Hydrogen and HeliumJupiter is covered in clouds consisting of ammonia crystals which produce bands of light-colored zones, and dark-colored bands.Jupiter's main attraction is a large red storm known as the Great Red Spot. This storm has a maximum diamater of 40,000km, over three times the size of the Earth.Jupiter's inside consists of a liquid hydrogen core

Satellite System

Jupiter has a total of 67 confirmed moons. Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto are Jupiter's 4 biggest moons
