About This Show

Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System. It is a world of raging storms and multilevel clouds of various colours. It has a radius almost 11 times that of Earth and has about 80 moons.

Saturn is about nine times Earth's radius also with about 80 moons and is easily recognised by its distinctive ring system, one of the wonders of the Solar System. Like Jupiter, it is mostly made up of layers of hydrogen and helium that surround a dense core.

Come and explore in detail these gas giants and some of their fascinating moons.
