Jupiter is the largest of the planets in the Solar System – more massive than all of the other planets combined.
Jupiter is mostly made of gas (mainly Hydrogen and Helium) and has no solid surface.
The red stripes and swirls on Jupiter are weather systems in its outer atmosphere. The Great Red Spot is a gigantic storm which has been seen on Jupiter for over 300 years!
