Fact's About Jupiter

In 1610 Galileo first pointed a telescope at the night sky and he saw Jupiter's fore largest moons lo,Europa,Ganymede and Callisto.

Jupiter was first visited by Pioneer 10 in 1973 then Pioneer 11, The Voyager 11 and 12 ys of coures Ulysses. Later the Spacecraft Galileo orbited around Jupiter for eight years. And it is still regularly observed by the Hubbl Space Telescope.

Jupiter has rings just like Saturn does,only they are much fainter and smaller. They were not expected. They were only discovered when two of the Voyager 1 scientists insisted that it was worth a look to see. Everyone thought that there were no rings on Jupiter. They have since have been imaged in the infrared from ground-based observatonies and by Galileo. Unlike Saturns rings Jupiter has rings that are very dark. Ther're probably composed of very small grains of rocky material. And also Jupiters rings seem to have no ice in them also unlike Saturn.
