Chapter 8: The Outer Planets Jupiter is the largest and most massive planet in our solar system. It has a mass 2½ more than any other planet in our system. Mercury is the least massive planet within the solar system. Out of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, Mars is the only planet without rings. Jupiter has the most moons ranging at about 63 Jupiters atmosphere consists of many storms and gases. Zones provide the framework for swirling cloud patterns. The great red spot on Jupiter is a massive hurricane. The belts and zones are created by the perpetual motion and are confined to narrow bands of latitude. The reddish bands are belts, the whitish bands are zones. Liquid metallic hydrogen is hydrogen that acts like metal (similar to copper wiring in a house) in its ability to conduct electricity and heat. Both Jupiter and Saturn has liquid metal hydrogen. The four Galilean satellites consists of io, Europa, Ganymede, and callisto. Both io and Europa are the same size as our moon. Ganymede and callisto are roughly the same size of mercury. All have iron core except callisto. Europa and ganymede also have an ocean under their crust. Io energy sources are powered by the distance from io and other Galilean satellites Jupiter changing. This creates a tidal force which squeezes and flexes the moon. Powering the volcanoes. Saturns rings are comprised of ice coated rock. These bodies of rings form by ring F debris swirling around because of Prometheus, the passing moon, and its gravitational pull. Saturns can barley be seen because of the internal heat that transports gases by convection to the upper atmosphere. The Shepard moons are called Prometheus and Pandora because of this effect on Saturn. Titans atmosphere is cool enough and massive enough to retain heavy gases in its atmosphere.
