An Adventure to Jupiter

Exciting + Steamy

The composition of Jupiter’s atmosphere is similar to that of the sun mostly hydrogen and helium therefore I will need to bring an oxygen tank. Jupiter’ fast rotation is thought to drive electrical currents in this region, generating the planet’s powerful magnetic field. The surface temperature of Jupiter is 239 degrees so you will need a cooling suit. The magnetic field rotates with the planet and sweeps up particles that have an electric charge. Near the planet, the magnetic field traps a swarm of charged particles and accelerates them to very high energies, creating intense radiation that bombards the innermost moons and can damage spacecraft. In order to land on Jupiter you will have to have a hovercraft or shoes that would allow you to fly. There is not any food or water on the planet and so you will need to bring both on your trip. Jupiter would be an awesome place to visit.
