3.12 Planet Jupiter - The Giant Planet

In astronomy mythology, Jupiter known as Zeus in Greece over threw his father Saturn to become king of the gods. He then split the Universe with his brothers Neptune and Pluto.

How much would you weigh on Jupiter? If you traveled to Jupiter on vacation you would be very heavy. If you weigh 70 pounds on the Earth, on Jupiter you would weigh 185 pounds.

Jupiter's great red spot visible in the picture to the right is where a giant storm has been raging for at least 300 years. It's super hurricane winds blow across an area larger than the Earth. This giant planet has no solid surface. Under it's atmosphere is a large liquid ocean of hydrogen and water. What lies in between that ocean and the atmosphere? Actually there is nothing in between. The atmosphere slowly gets thicker and thicker until it becomes part of the ocean. In other words Jupiter's ocean has no surface on which you could float a boat. The sky slowly becomes the ocean.
