Jupiter

  1. The surface temperature is about -234F. The atmosphere is mostly made of molecular hydrogen and helium.
  2. The size of Jupiter is 43,441 miles. The density of the planet is 1.33 g/cm^3.
  3. Jupiter's gravity is 24.79 m/s^2.
  4. The planet is predominantly made of hydrogen and helium.
  5. Jupiter has at least 63 moons that we know of.
  6. Jupiter completes an orbit around the Sun every 11.86 years.
  7. Jupiter's has the fastest rotation out of all the planets and completes rotation on its axis in less than 10 hours.
  8. There is water vapor in the cloud tops.
  9. There could be life because of the water on the planet.
  10. There is evidence of plate tectonics diving underneath eachother.

Saturn

  1. Saturn's atmosphere is mostly made of hydrogen with some helium. It's surface temperature ranges from -280F and -170F.
  2. The size of the planet is 36,184 miles. And it's density is 687.00 kg/m^3
  3. Saturn's gravity is 10.44 m/s^2
  4. Saturn is a giant gas planet and is made of hydrogen and helium, with small amounts of mthane and ammonia.
  5. The planet has 31 known moons.
  6. It takes Saturn 10,759 Earth days to finish one revolution around the Sun.
  7. It's rotation period is 10 hours and 39 minutes.
  8. The moon Enceladus has water on it and sometimes rains onto Saturn.
  9. No, because of the high pressure, strong winds, and cold temperatures.
  10. Scientists have spotted some volcanoes on Saturn.

Uranus

  1. The atmosphere is primarily composed of hydrogen and helium. It's surface temperature is -357F.
  2. Uranus is 15,759 miles and it's density is 1.27 g/cm^3.
  3. The planet's gravity is 8.69 m/s^2.
  4. Uranus is composed of ice, ammonia, and methane.
  5. The planet has 27 known moons.
  6. Uranus orbits the Sun once every 84 Earth years.
  7. The rotation period is 17 hours and 14 minutes and it rotates clockwise.
  8. There are traces of water in the atmosphere.
  9. There probably can't be life on Uranus because it has no solid surface.
  10. There is no evidence of plate tectonics on Uranus.

Neptune

  1. The planet's atmosphere consists of hydrogen and helium, with a little methane, water, ammonia, and other ices. The temperature can dip down to -218C.
  2. The size of the planet is 15,299 miles and the density is 1.64 g/cm^3.
  3. The gravity of Neptune is 11.15 m/s^2.
  4. Neptune is made up of cold gases like hydrogen, helium, and methane.
  5. The planet has 13 known moons.
  6. It completes its orbit every 164.79 years.
  7. The rotation period of Neptune is 16.11 years.
  8. Its atmosphere contains water.
  9. There is not possibility of life on Neptune because there is no liquid water and extremely cold water.
  10. There is no evidence of plate tectonics on Neptune
