More than twice as big as all the other planets in the solar system combined, Jupiter is 318 times as massive as Earth.

This massive planet has a surface area of more than 23.7 billion square miles.

Because hydrogen and helium are its main components.

It has only one-fifth the density of Earth 

Despite its size and mass, Jupiter is the solar system's fastest spinning planet.

Clocking in at more than 28,000 mph, the gas giant may complete an orbit of the Sun in less than ten hours.

After Venus and the moon of Earth, it is also the third-brightest object in the solar system.

Jupiter's surface is uniform because it is formed of gas rather than rocky material, hence it lacks the mountains and valleys that are present on the rocky planets.
