Jupiter
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Photo credit: NASA
 
2     Ahh, we just relaxed and here we are near Jupiter. Our make-believe spacecraft travels with the speed of imagination. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun. It is also the largest planet in the solar system. It is so big that all of the other planets could fit inside it!
 
3     Jupiter is a giant gas planet. It is made of the same things that stars are. Jupiter would have become a star if it were about eighty times bigger. It just did not get big enough to catch fire.
 
4     It is very cold on Jupiter. At the top of its clouds, the average temperature is -244F. Jupiter is not a good place for living things.
