The mass of jupiter compared to earth
1.898x270kg,317.83 eartg mass
The size of jupiter compared to earth Jupiter has a diameter of about 88,695 miles (142,800 kilometers) which is more than 11 times the diameter of Earth. It's volume is over 1,300 times the volume of Earth. This means that Jupiter is so big that over 1,300 Earths could fit inside of it.
How long it takes jupiter to orbet the sun Jupiter revolves or orbits around the Sun once every 11.86 Earth years, or once every 4,330.6 Earth days. Jupiter travels at an average speed of 29,236 miles per hour or 47,051 kilometers per hour in its orbit around the Sun.
How long it takes for jupiter to rotate on its axis Jupiter rotates on its axis once in slightly less than 10 hours. Its rotation axis tilted only slightly: 3.13 degrees from the perpendicular to the plane of its orbit. It takes 11.86 years to go once around the Sun.
Jupiters atmosphere information
The atmosphere of Jupiter is the largest planetary atmosphere in the Solar System. It is mostly made of molecular hydrogen and helium in roughly solar proportions; other chemical compounds are present only in small amounts and include methane, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and water.
Jupiters temperature informtion
Jupiter is, on average, very cold. The average global temperature of the planet is negative 234 degrees Fahrenheit. However, there are areas of the upper atmosphere that can get hot, reaching up to 1,340 degrees F, and the core of the planet could be up to 43,000 degrees F.

Why i chose this planet
Because it is the bigest plaanet in the solar sistem and because if its red spot
The exploration of Jupiter has been conducted via close observations by automated spacecraft. It began with the arrival of Pioneer 10 into the Jovian system in 1973, and, as of 2016, has continued with eight further spacecraft missions. All of these missions were undertaken by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and all but two have been flybys that take detailed
Pioneer 11 and 12 passed by the gas giant in the 1970s. Voyagers I and II passed the planet in 1979. Even the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft made a short visit to Jupiter and used the planet's gravity to speed its trip to Saturn. The Galileo mission was the only one designed to orbit the planet and study its moons.
In 1610, Galileo Galilei turned his rudimentary telescope on Jupiter, and realized that it had 4 large moons orbiting it: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. This was an important discovery, because it demonstrated that Earth was not the center of the Universe as proponents of the geocentric view believed.
Jupiter is the fifth planet out from the Sun, and is two and a half times more massive than all the other planets in the solar system combined. It is made primarily of gases and is therefore known as a “gas gian
