Transcript of Jupiter
How strong is the gravity on Jupiter? The gravity on Jupiter's surface is 2.4 times as strong as the gravity on Earth. That means that if you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 240 pounds on Jupiter! What is Jupiter's orbit and how long does it take to rotate? Jupiter goes around the sun every 4 333 days or almost 12 Earth years. Jupiter rotates every 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is the fastest rotation in our solar system. Who discovered Jupiter and when? Jupiter was discovered by Galileo on January 10th, 1610. How many satellites does Jupiter have and what are the main moons? Jupiter has 16 satellites that are over 10 km in diameter. Jupiter also has 4 "main" satellites that are known as the Galileon satellites. The four galileon satellites are Europa , Ganymede, Io and Callisto. Jupiter had 63 known moons as of February 2004.
What space missions are there to Jupiter? Because of this fast rotation, Jupiter is 7% larger in diameter at the equator than between the north and south pole. What space missions have explored Jupiter? The U.S. has sent six probes to Jupiter. The first probe - named the Pioneer 10 - was sent to Jupiter in 1972. What are the "key" features of Jupiter? Jupiter has something called the "Great Red Spot" on its surface. The red spot is like a hurricane. It is gas spinning around in a circle. The diameter of the Great Red Spot is about three times the diameter of Earth. The spot is usually red or brown. Sometimes the great red spot cannot be seen because it fades away. The red colour of the great red spot may be because of sulfur and ammonia in it. The great red spot never moves towards or away from the equator of Jupiter - only east and west. Jupiter also has some very light coloured rings surrounding it. What else is interesting about Jupiter? Jupiter has a very large magnetosphere. The magnetosphere damaged some of the equipment on various probes that went to Jupiter. The magnetosphere also protects Jupiter from solar winds. At the edge of the great red spot, the wind spinning is going about 360 km/h. The magnetosphere extends 650 000 000 km into space - past saturn! Thanks for Watching! I hope you learned something about Jupiter!
