Like the sun, Jupiter is composed predominantly of hydrogen & helium. But unlike the sun, it lacks the necessary amount to begin fusion, the process that fuels a star. Jupiter would need to be 75-80 times more massive than it is at present to be considered a star. If all of the planets in the solar system had formed as part of the gas giant, it still would not have sufficient mass. Still, by itself, Jupiter is 2 & 1/2 times larger than all of the other planets in the solar system combined.

Mass one-thousandth that of the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined. #Jupiter is classified as a gas giant along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Together, these four planets are sometimes referred to as the Jovian or outer planets.

This mission will be very dangerous for the probe. It will face large amounts of radiation, gravity and the largest magnetosphere in the solar system. No probe in history has come this close to Jupiter 6/27/16

Jupiter......not really a planet, but instead a Sun in the making. This hot gas giant has planets that orbit it (currently mislabeled as primary moons) & some of those planets have their own moons (labeled as secondary moons)......who knows how long before it kicks into gear & ignites. ......tick tick tick....
