- The Great Red Spot on the planet is actually an enormous hurricane that changes in size and color over the years.
- A person weighing 100 pounds on Earth would weigh 264 pounds on Jupiter.
- Life might exist on Europa, one of Jupiter's moons.
Prepare yourself for an amazing voyage through space. Your destination: Jupiter!
