Jupiter (Sol V) is a gas giant that is the largest planet in the Sol System.[1]

Atmospheric Composition

Jupiter's atmosphere is primarily composed of Hydrogen with some Helium.

Chemical Formula Full Name Amount
H2 Hydrogen 89%
He Helium 10%
CH4 Methane 0.3%
NH3 Hydrogen Deuteride 0.0028%
C2H6 Ethane 0.0006%

Natural Satellites

Io

Thanks to tidal heating, Io experiences extreme geologic activity, making it the driest and most volcanically active object in the Sol System.

Europa

Europa's icy surface makes it one of the most reflective moons in the Sol System.

Ganymede

Ganymede is the Sol System's largest moon and the only one with a magnetosphere. It is bigger than Mercury and only slightly smaller than Mars.

Callisto

The tidally locked surface of Callisto is the oldest and most heavily cratered in Sol.
