Jupiter: Guardian of the Solar System

Here’s a great presentation made for the NOAA and NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center about the giant planet Jupiter, part of the Science of a Sphere series. It shows the size and power of the huge gas planet and how it dominates its region of the solar system. Indeed, if it weren’t for Jupiter standing as guardian of the inner solar system life on Earth may very well have never been possible!

    Another stunning video. What lucky generations we are to see the planets and moons in such detail, and Jupiter, no matter how often we see it, it still is amazing and wonderful.
    Thank you for providing this – much appreciated.
