Yes, there is gas on other planets. In fact, the planets in our solar
system out past Mars: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, are
made mostly of gas. Even the other inner planets: Mercury, Venus and
Mars, have some gas on them. Not all planets have the same amount of
gas, some have very little, but all the planets have in our solar
system have at least some.
Thank you for your question.
