How old would you be if you
were a Jupitarian?
Probes:
More Than 30 have been sent.
most recent was the Juno spacecraft.
Why is it hard to see Jupiter
during some parts of the year?
Why is Jupiter sometimes closer, and sometimes farther away?
Jupiter does not really have a surface. If you tried to stand on it, you would fall through the gases towards the core and eventually be crushed by the pressure.
