Jupiter Facts - PlanetFacts.net | Interesting planet facts | Scoop.it

Planets have always interested me... They seem so close, yet it takes years to get to them. The vacuum of space makes it seem that the other planets are hundreds of miles closer. Anyways, Jupiter, being the biggest planet in the solar system has the biggest gravitational pull, saves the earth from asteroids that would otherwise crash into us. Jupiter has the second strongest gravitational pull, other than the Sun. Also, a normal day on Jupiter is 10 hours, nothing compared to the 24 hours that we get here on Earth. It has over 60 moons, but most of them are small enough not to really be counted as full moons. Jupiter is so big, that is would be able to fit 100 earths into it at one time. Thank you for reading :)
