Explore Largest Planet, Our Solar System and more!

Jupiter and Earth. Makes me feel very small.

Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system

Saturn and Earth comparison. Saturn is times the size of Earth, but has the lowest density in the Solar System. If Saturn was tossed into a giant ocean, it would float!

A comparison portrait of Jupiter's four Galilean moons Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto, each with different characteristics. (In this image composite, Jupiter is not at the same scale as the satellites.)

Jupiter est la cinquième et plus grosse planète du système solaire. Jupiter est le quatrième objet le plus clair du ciel (après le Soleil, la Lune et Vénus). Jupiter est une planète géante gazeuse. Elle ne possède pas de surface solide, leur matière gazeuse devient simplement plus dense avec profondeur. Jupiter a un champ magnétique énorme, beaucoup de plus fort que celui de la Terre. La plus externe, serait formée de nuages de glace d'ammoniac.

Call me crazy but. If technology gets to the point where Space Shuttle flights are as common as airplane flights, I will be the first to buy a ticket just to see the Earth from space and experience zero gravity.

Jupiter Mission's Computer Glitch Delays Data-Gathering

This montage of 10 JunoCam images shows Jupiter growing and shrinking in apparent size before and after NASA's Juno spacecraft made its closest approach on August at UTC.
