jupiter has 90% hydrogen and 10% helium. But under its strong gravity, Jupiter pulls together this atmosphere into separate layers with very interesting properties.
jupiter has an atmosphere that is the largest in the Solar System and is mainly composed of hydrogen and helium.

astronomers also detected small amounts of compounds such as methane, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, and water. this mixture contribute to the colourful layers of jupiter. 1. How far is Jupiter from the sun? OUR RESOURCES: ATMOSPHERE: http://www.universetoday.com/40577/jupiters-atmosphere/#ixzz2IXapeTMH The planet Jupiter's four largest moons are called the Galilean satellites, after Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, who observed them in 1610. The German astronomer Simon Marius claimed to have seen the moons around the same time, but he did not publish his observations and so Galileo is given the credit for their discovery. These large moons, named Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, are each distinctive worlds. It has at least 63 known moons. I will be talking about Jupiter and his life. Jupiter is a roman form of the Greek God Zeus. Zeus is King of all God’s and King of the skies. Jupiter has 2 brothers and 3 sisters. Zeus’ father was Saturn/Kronos and his mother was Rhea, both children of Gaea. Saturn killed his father, just because his mother said so, making him the supreme Titan.

He got married with Rhea he immediately had kids with her. Their kids were Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Vesta, Ceres, and finally Juno. But the Titan, Saturn received a prophecy that one of his children will overthrow him someday. When he got that message he thought of a plan. That plan was to swallow his children, so can be close to them and have them within him. All except his son, Jupiter who was safe at the island of Crete where he was being taken care of by nymphs.

When Jupiter was finally old enough he did what his mother told him. He gave his father poison to puke out his siblings. And it worked, his siblings were back on the earth again and together they over threw their father together. When Saturn their father died they took the world to themselves. Jupiter took the heavens, Neptune took the seas, and Pluto took the underworld. Jupiter had a wife his very own sister Juno/Hera. But before he married Hera he had a wife Metis, mother of Minerva. But he swallowed her because he wanted her with him but also wanted her away. He had a lot of kids, and he often cheated on Juno. His sacred animal is the eagle. So that is Jupiter’s life. example of how the Jupiter's atmosphere: moons in the Jupiter: Thudor’s research questions and answers Jupiter is 483 million miles from the sun. That is also 778.6 km from the sun. But it is still a hot planet due to the continuous storms raging on the planet’s surface. 2.What is Jupiter’s surface made out of? Jupiter’s surface is made up of gas and helium. This is because Jupiter is a gas planet. It also has very large storm called “The Great Red Spot”. It is called the Great Red Spot because from space it looks like that. It has been raging for over a thousand years, and it is still here today. But there are many other storms on Jupiter, but they are not as large. Rotation and Revolution:http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/profile.cfm?Object=Jupiter 1. the most familiar feature of Jupiter is its 40,000 km acrossspot that is called "the great spot"

2. jupiter is most magnetic field in the solar system. did you know that jupiter has 14 times as strong as earth magnetic field. This magnetic field traps ionized particles from the solar wind and accelerates them to nearly the speed of light. it creates a dangerous belt of radiation around Jupiter that can cause damage to spacecraft.

3. Jupiter is the fastest spinning planet in the Solar System.
jupiter takes time about 10 hours to complete a full rotation on its axis. the planet has flattened out a little and is bulging at its equator because it was spinning so rapidly. 3 unique informations This is an example of Jupiter's redspot As you can see here Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system. The Roman god Jupiter. bibliography Here are one of the space probes that went and explored Jupiter. chase's research (questions and answers) Thank you for watching our gwen's research (questions and answers) marvy's research (questions and answers) III distance between jupiter and sun: tp://www.universetoday.com/15089/how-far-is-jupiter-from-the-sun/#ixzz2JEkPqAv1 The distance between jupiter and the sun is 741 million kilometers but since the orbit that jupiter makes is not completly circle it is not always the same. 741 million kilometers is the closest jupiter get to the sun in its orbit Atmosphere (JUPITER’S ATMOSPHERE) unique info: http://www.universetoday.com/15182/interesting-facts-about-jupiter/#ixzz2IYvfuMEW moons: http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/profile.cfm?Display=Moons&Object=Jupiter
