The largest planet of our solar system lies between Mars and Saturn. Even in a small telescope Jupiter shows interesting subtleties, such as the dark bands. His four big moons are also clearly visible. They were one of the first major discoveries since the invention of the telescope.
Even today, the gas giant is at the center of research. Thus, the space probe Galileo gained important insights into the atmospheric composition of Jupiter. The moon Europe is at the center of speculation about any life that could hide under its ice crust.
This poster gives an overview of the planet, with numerous photos from NASA and the ESA illustrating the current state of research. Important phenomena are presented in a comprehensible manner by means of drawings and sketches.
