Double click anywhere & add an idea "jupiter is a gas giant"; all gas giants are similer to jupiter in composition. jupiters diameter is 11 earths and is 20% larger than saturns, making it the largest planet in the solar system. This image,taken on January 4 and 5, 2001, by the ion and neutral mass spectrometer instrument on the Cassini spacecraft, makes the huge magnetosphere surrounding Jupiter visible in a way no instrument on any previous spacecraft has been able to do. The magnetosphere is a bubble of charged particles trapped within the magnetic environment of the planet. In this picture, a magnetic field is sketched over the image to place the energetic neutral atom emissions in perspective. This sketch extends in the horizontal plane to a width 30 times the radius of Jupiter. Also shown for scale and location are the disk of Jupiter (black circle) and the approximate position (yellow circles) of the doughnut-shaped torus created from material spewed out by volcanoes on Io, one of Jupiter's large moons. Data from the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft suggested that a ring system around the giant planet Jupiter existed; this was confirmed by the Voyager flybys. This image was taken by Voyager 2 looking back at the rings from inside Jupiter's shadow. The ring is very bright because it is composed of fine dust, which scatters light efficiently in this viewing geometry. The picture shows the main ring 7000 km (4350 mi) wide, with a broad, thick "halo" inside it used earths to prople it towards encoutered venus febuary 1990 encoutered jupiter 12/7/95 relesed probe jovian surface encoutered moon disentergrated 9/21/03 passed jupiter 12/4/73 exited the planetary system 6/13/83 transmission ended 3/31/97 at 6.39 billion mi encontered jupiter 3/5/79 provided evidence of jupiters ring passed near saturn 11/12/80 ; passed pioneer 10 to become the farthest man made object encountered jupiter 27/9/79; saturn 8/25/81; uranus1/24/86; neptune; 8/25/89 passed jupiter12/3/74; saturn 9/1/79 discovered in additional ring and two moons around saturn operating in in outer solar system transmission ended 9/95 passed jupiter12/3/74; saturn 9/1/79 discovered in additional ring and two moons around saturn operating in in outer solar system transmission ended 9/95 This large brown oval could be an opening in the upper cloud deck where warmer cloud levels may exist. Features of this sort are not rare on Jupiter and have an average lifetime of one to two years. Above the feature is the pale orange North Temperate Belt, bounded on the south by the high-speed North Temperate Current with winds of 120 m/s (260 mi/hr). The range to Jupiter, on March 2, 1979 when this photograph was taken, was 4.0 million km (2.5 million mi). The region just east of the Red Spot is seen here in greatly exaggerated color. The colors do not represent the true hues seen in the Jovian atmosphere but have been produced by special computer processing to enhance subtle variations in both color and shading. A close-up of one of the boundaries between the latitudinal cloud bands shows interaction between the bands. This Galileo image highlights a convective storm and associated lightning in Jupiter's atmosphere. The left image highlighted area shows the daytime view; the right images show the same area during the night. The Jovian latitude and longitude are shown in the left panel. The colorful, wavy cloud pattern to the left of the Red Spot is a region of extraordinarily complex wave motion. This dramatic view of the Great Red Spot and its surroundings was taken February 25, 1979, when Voyager 1 was 9.2 million km (5.7 million mi) from Jupiter. An atmospheric system larger than Earth and more than 300 years old, the Great Red Spot remains a mystery. Swirling, storm-like features possibly associated with wind shear can be seen both to the left and above the Red Spot. what pioneer 10 and 11 endured
