Jupiter and the Giant Planets in Our Solar System

April 15, 2015 – Article “Jupiter and the Giant Planets in Our Solar System”


This paper will take you for a journey to the biggest planet in our solar system – Jupiter! It is meant to give you a perspective of our cosmic neighborhood and our place in the Cosmos.

The paper is based on the material from Prof. Mike Brown’s online Coursera course – The Science of the Solar System.

I would like to thank one more time Prof. Brown for being the amazing teacher that he is and for inspiring me to write this second of four papers one years after I graduated from the course.

I hope you find this read interesting and inspiring!
