Life on the Planet

What to Expect on Jupiter

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel to a planet unlike yours? If you ever asked yourself this than today is your lucky day! The new Space Travel Agency called the Space Travelers have invited you to have a free trip to the planet Jupiter!

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun. Because it is so FAARR away from the sun the average temperature is a freezing temp of negetive 163-121 degrees so get your under armor on. Keep in mind on your adventures on the planet you will have to wear our own high tech space suits. The reason why is because of the harsh and toxic gasses on Jupiter. The gasses include 96% hydrogen, 3% helium, 0.4% methane, 0.01% ammonia, 0.01% hydrogen deuteride, and 0.0007% ethane. Our trip will be one Jupiter year witch will be a total of 11.86 Earth years so don't forget anything.

Jupiter is not the farthest planet from the sun but is still a great distance from it. Jupiter is approximately 741-816 million miles from the sun but it still rotates fast. 1 Jupiter day is 9.93 earth hours.

The gravitational force on Jupiter is very strong. If you go anywhere near Jupiter you will be captured by the gravitational force which brings us to our next subject, the moons. There are over 60 moons on Jupiter. The biggest are Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. Jupiter also has one faint ring made out of dust particles. The diameter of the planet is approxamently 142,984 km.
