Area One: Essential Data:
"Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. Its diameter is 88,846 miles (142,984 kilometers), more than 11 times that of Earth, and about one-tenth that of the sun. It would take more than 1,000 Earths to fill up the volume of the giant planet. When viewed from Earth, Jupiter appears brighter than most stars. It is usually the second brightest planet -- after Venus."
- NASA
Jupiter is 777 million kilometer away from the sun. It has a very thin layer of atmosphere. There has been a storm raging for 300 years. It also has 63 moons. The planet is 5th from the sun. It takes 9 hrs and 55 min. to rotate. It takes 4332.59 days revolution.


Area 2: History:

Nobody knows who discovered Jupiter. When it was discovered in Ancient Greece. Jupiter was named after Zeus the god of thunder. The meaning of the planet is the supreme god.

Area 3: Physical Properties

The mass is 1.899 x (10)27th. The diameter 142,984 kilometer. The average temperature -234 to -148. The average density is 1.326 g/cm3. The escape velocity 59.5 km/s. The layer consist of liquid hydrogen, liquid metallic hydrogen and a core as big as earth. The surface is a thick cold gases. The composition is hydrogen, helium, sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen. There are things unique that Jupiter has rings just like Saturn, it is the biggest planet, and that it does not blow up with all these flammable gases.

Area 5: Interesting Facts

A person who weighs 110 is going to weigh 260 in Jupiter. A person who weighs 170 is going to weigh 401.8. My partner Tan next birthday is Monday, Nov. 25, 2019, my other partner Josh next birthday is Sunday, April 21, 2019, My next birthday is on Tuesday, March 26, 2019. If you build a model of the solar system with the sun being 615 millimeters the planet Jupiter 63.1 on that model.
