Jupiter is one of the eight planets in our solar system, The Milky Way. It is the largest planet in our solar system, it's core being 4-15x the mass of Earth. Many scientists agree that Jupiter is around 4.5 billion years old, very close to the creation of the solar system.


* Jupiter is the largest planetary body in our solar system.
* Jupiter's mass is approximately 1,898,130,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg.
* Its distance from the Sun is 778,3000,000 km.
* Jupiter is made of 90% hydrogen & 10% helium.
* Jupiter's revolution period is 11.862615 Earth years, or 4,332.82 days; meaning that if you were 12 years old on Earth, you would only be 0.137385 years old.
* Jupiter is the 4th brightest object in the sky. (after the Sun, Earth's Moon, and Venus.)
* Jupiter has over 50 moons, including the Galilean Moons.
* Jupiter spins very quickly, with a rotation period of 9.8 Earth hours. (I wonder how long school would be there?)
