What is the coolest it gets on Jupiter? Celsius And what is the warmest it gets on Jupiter? Celsius
Jupiter is a gas planet and radiates more energy into space than it
recieves from the sun. It gets its energy from the slow gravitational
compression of the planet (and not fusion of hydrogen, which is most of
what Jupiter's made of. Jupiter is too cold to ignite a fusion
reaction). The core temperature is said to be 24,000 degrees Celsius
and the tempereature at the top of Jupiters clouds is said to be -140
degrees Celsius. The temperature of the interior varies between these
Here is an interesting page
with lots of information in addition to the temperatures, together with
links to lots of good pictures of the planet and its satellites.
