duaney_b The Jupiter System.. The eerie shot of the Jupiter taken by NASA's Pioneer 11 during its closest approach to the gas giant on December 3 1974 taken from less than 43,000 kilometers above the surface.

rluvesscience #sciencefacts #astronomy #milkyway #milkywaygalaxy #solarsystem #planet #planets #jovian #jovianplanets #gasgiant #gasgiantplanets #saturn - Saturn is the only planet in our solar system that is less dense ~ than water so it could float on it!!! In actuality, it is about 30% less dense than water, being a mass of Hydrogen and Helium that has a diameter equivalent to 9.5x Earths 🌎 and you could fit about 764 Earths 🌎 inside of it!!! Saturn rotates the 2nd fastest behind Jupiter ~ making 1 day there > 10 hours and 33 minutes!!! Saturn rotates so fast that it forms an oblate spheroid since it is flatter at the poles and bulges in the center. ~ With Saturn being the sixth planet from the Sun and the 2nd largest after Jupiter - it takes 29.5 Earth years for it to orbit the Sun! It has about 62 moons with Titan being the largest, but most of its' moons are asteroid sized. Overall, Saturn has a small and very dense solid core made up mostly of ice ️and rocks ~ and it is surrounded by a layer of liquid metallic hydrogen. Saturn has no definite surface and instead goes from a gaseous atmosphere to a liquid interior. ~ It's outer layer is composed mainly of helium and molecular hydrogen with traces of ammonia, methane, and water. --- Saturn is so bright in the sky and its' rings are easily seen with a telescope 🔭 due to its' extremely hot ️ core (decompression), which can reach over 21,000• F. ~ Saturn actually radiates more than 2.5x more energy 🔅 into space than it receives from the Sun! --- Saturn's shimmering ring system is still a debatable mystery. > These mesmerizing are composed of 3 main ones with many more ~ mostly made of rocks and ice, but mixed with a little bit of dust and other chemicals. ~ The "E" ring by itself stretches 480,000 km. ~ However, the rings are considered paper thin in comparison to the rest of the planet - being the equivalent of a two-story building in thickness!!! 3w
  •   rluvesscience #ringedplanet - Saturn's nickname > Saturn also has storms on its' planet ~ the largest being the Dragon storm ️, which is located in the Southern Hemisphere. --- 3w
  •   rluvesscience 764 Earths 🌎 in volume!!! 3w
  •   rluvesscience The lightning ️on Saturn ~ is a million times more powerful than what is seen on Earth! 3w
  •   rluvesscience ***Due to Kepler's law ~ the inner rings spin faster! 3w

101starwarsfanpage101 Cloud City was a outpost and a tibanna gas mining colony above the planet Bespin, named as such because it was perpetually surrounded by giant clouds. The city floated 60,000 kilometers above the core of the gas giant it contained a large and famous luxury resort district on its upper levels, complete with hotels and Casinos.

The main sauser shaped city structure was 16.2 kilometers in diameter, and 17.3 kilometers tall. Some of the nearby floating settlements, like the Vapor room, and industrial platforms were also considered a part of the city. Six Gravity Control Generators were placed on the upper level of the city to regulate the city's position. During the time of the Galactic Civial War the Rebel Alliance built the Galactic Government Center on the upper level. The city's main function was to tibanna gas, by using tractor beams to draw the gas into internal refineries. -
