Program Description

“Jupiter, the largest planet circling the sun, is huge enough to swallow all other planets and still have room to spare. Despite its size, Jupiter spins faster than any other planet; as a result, it is not spherical but is
slightly flattened like a tangerine. It has swirling clouds and the most violent storms in the solar system–including a single on-going storm three times the size of planet Earth. With computer animation and satellite images, explore this unusual planet and the missions to study it.”
