How big is jupiter to the sun

Posted on 25.06.2018
Do you think it will be crowded. Weve also recorded an episode of Astronomy Cast just about Jupiter. The sun is several orders of magnitude bigger than Jupiter.

Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system.

This means that Jupiter's diameter is just over a tenth of the sun's diameter. Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar system, but it is notlarger than the Sun. It formed the same way the sun itself did.
And Jupiter's volume is even bigger. No, there will still be enough space to accommodate several times the other planets too. Thats how many Earths could be flattened out to cover the surface of Jupiter. It is big enough to consume all the planets inside it. So in other words, no, absolutely not. Use a screwdriver to carefully take off the tiny clips. And it was the second object to form out of the nebula that birthed us, after the sun itself.
