3.7 Outer Planet Jupiter

Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, was named for the Roman king of the gods. Jupiter is so big that more than a thousand Earths could fit inside it. Jupiter is mostly made of hydrogen, in liquid form inside the planet and as gas on the surface. Strong winds swirl that gas into colorful clouds of red, oranges, yellow, and brown.

Galileo, the great Italian astronomer who lived around 1600, looked through a telescope and discovered four moons around Jupiter. Since then astronomers have found twelve more moons. In the 1990s, a space probe traveled towards Jupiter. It was called the Galileo, because Galileo reached Jupiter. In 1990, it flew past one of Jupiterís moons, called Io, and sent back amazing pictures.
